Warning: Discussion of suicide attempting. (just to be careful) Ok its kinda a sick question but I just wanted to know what really happens when someone actually slashes there wrist. I was told its literally a case of blood squirting out exessivley like something out of some kind of grusome horror flick which would seem likely bieng its a main artery then you eventually pass out from blood loss then die shortly after. Does anyone have any factual answers to these questions? (obviously not someone who's tried it but perhaps someone in the medical profession) oh and possibly how long it would take after cutting before one would pass out/die. I'm not tryin to encourage anything to anyone about it I just wanted some simple facts of what really happens and if its like what my friend sais its really like.
