    Oh dear hun!
    You should clean it for a start - if you havent already..
    erm.. you should probably consider letting a doctor see it..?
    Sorry I don't really know what else.

    Take care,
    If you feel like doing it again, distract yourself. go and do something else for a little while :hug:

    well what you should do is go to the hospital, but whether you'll take such advice or not, i don't know. if you won't then you can try holding it together using steri-strips, or you could superglue it (yeah seriously) and it obviously needs to be disinfected, and covered with a dressing of some sort.

    You also need help to help you stop, which is the other reason why hospital would be a good idea.

    Hi, I am sorry u r feeling so out of control with cutting at the moment. That cut on ur wrist does sound quite bad. I echo what everyone has said in that ideally u should go to the hospital so they can stitch it. If u wont do that then as "leavemealone" said steri strips (which you can buy from any chemist) will help keep it closed. I do not suggest u super glue it tho as it is not a good idea to add foreign chemicals to already damaged skin. Also if there is any dirt or infection in the cut supergluing it shut will keep it in there and a bad infection could develop.
    I hope u r ok
    Take care
