A bit of help if possible

Not open for further replies.


I have a problem, which I need some suggestions for if at all possible.

I have a wound on my stomach that is infected. I have tried to treat it at home but the infection seems to be getting worse. I now have a temperature, nausea and dizziness along with quite a lot of pain and I think that now is the time to get it seen.

However, I need a believable story to explain why I have this wound. I was thinking about saying I did it myself but am worried as to what the consequences may be. I then thought that I could say I was mugged by an unknown attacker and didn't report it. Any suggestions?
Well, I personally would tell the truth. Just say something like...someone told uyou that SH releives stress and that you tried it, but it didn't work...something like that if I "HAD" lie.


Telling the truth is not an option. I just need a believable story that will fit.
If I were to say I did it myself what would be the likely consequences?

Flat get to a hospital, you have an infection, quite a serious one given your symptoms. If they want to know how u got it tell them the truth, the worse thing that can happen is they give you some help.

Please please please get to hospital before it gets any worse.


I know I need to go. But I need a believable story first. I can't go unprepared. Telling the truth isn't an option so any suggestions would be greatly received.

Dont tell them how you got it. They cant make you, just show them, perhaps tell them what it was that cut you, but you dont have to say how.

Not knowing what kind of wound it is, I cannot help with the narrative...but I am concerned mostly about the fever...please get medical attention, no matter what you have to say...a plate broke and it gashed me...or alike...and also consider why it happened...just a thought...Jackie


I will see if I can go tomorrow. Didn;t really get chance today so had to struggle through. Seem to be shivering a lot yet I feel hot. Weird. Feel dizzy. Will definitely go tomorrow. The wound seems tobe opening up more and ive been squeezing the pus out until I see blood a few times a day but it hurts a lot when i do tyaht so i have to bite on a towel. Will definitely go tomorrow will bunk off school.
