Keep pressure on it, it will squirt a little more but eventually stop then clean the wound and if the bleeding comes again pressure

run it under cold water for a while, be sure to clean it, put antibiotic ointment on it and i band-ai, it may continue to bleed but it will stop after some time

You don't need a doctor to do this! You can just find a band-aid and put it on top of the place you got cut. If you can't find a band-aid, you can just find a wet paper towel and put it on there.

I cut my thumb in half down the middle once! I could even see the bone. I was in the forest at the time, so I cut off part of my pants, tied my flopped off half of the thumb back on, waded across the river, walked a mile back home and waited an hour for my mum to get off work and take me to the hospital. True story. Your cut will be fine, just put a bandage and some antibiotic on it.

Put a clean paper towel on it, and keep pressure on the cut for about 2 minutes. If you can see the blood coming up through the paper towel, add a second paper towel onto the first and then apply more pressure on it for another 2 minutes. Then get something to wrap about the paper towels to keep them on there and to keep pressure on it. I know it would work because I'm certified for this and I once cut my hand with a box cutter knife trying to open a package.

Don't do that. There are other ways to deal with your problems. You could always see a councilor and ask him or her not to tell anyone. That always helps! Please you are probably a wonderful person with so much to live for. Please take my advice! You could also talk to a friend you trust and live. Please!!!
