Cutting and the hospital

August 10, 2012 at 1:31 am Leave a comment

So its no secret that some insiders here cut. And do it really deep, so it has to be stitched. The last really bad incident was a few months ago. We needed 28 stitches then. So our foster mom took us to the hospital. They were really awful to us there. The doctor on duty said “Well, you did this to yourself, so I am thinking you dont mind the pain, so I am not going to give you any anesthetic when I stitch it up”. Yes. He actually said this to us. Our foster mom kicked up a huge fuss, so he did actually give us something for the pain. But he wouldnt have if she hadnt complained. We figured this is normal, we deserve to be treated like this. It was weird to us when our foster mom said “No, you do not deserve this kind of treatment”. She complained the doctor afterwords, but I dont think anything came of it. We havent cut that bad now in a while. Emily has cut about 2 months ago, but only with razor blades. It didnt require stitches. We did have to get an antibiotic because the cuts got infected. No one has cut in a few weeks. People have wanted to do it but we havent. I suppose that is a good thing.
