    Does anyone know what causes your blood to be so thin, when you self harm that it drops like a drop of water, or has anyone experienced that?

    Blood is a liquid so it's normal for it to be something like water, to an extent.. If the cut takes a while to close or to stop bleeding then that could mean there is something wrong with your blood clotting system and/or the blood itself, and it *could* be serious, but then again it could also be something minor. If you are worried that your blood is thin and/or the blood isn't clotting fast enough then perhaps it would be a wise decision to see a doctor.

    No, it's very thin, much more than usaul. I cut a few days ago and it's a lot more thin than usaul. I have been self harming off and on for years.

    Try iron tablets, spinach and even guiness, all have iron in them, and certain times can be worse than others for your iron levels dropping as you are a girl...
