Yep. It's called bleeding to death. Happens all the time. All it takes is a slip and boom you hit an artery and you're toast. Which is why I would like you to stop...

Yes. You need your blood to be alive.

So if you bleed too much from cutting u would die?
Report as
Yes. Not necessarily from losing little amounts over long periods of time (I'm not sure what effect that has on you) but cutting just a little too deep could cause massive blood loss and quick death. It's very risky behavior.

yeah, if you hit an artery with that blade, you could die in a very short amount of time from blood loss.

Of course. Hit the wrong spot, you'll lose too much blood and die. That's why when people hear about people cutting, we say "GO GET HELP RIGHT NOW!" Now, you need to talk to someone about this and get help. One day, you might take it too far and you won't be able to fix it.

Not physically (provided that your cuts aren't too deep or near places where major veins and arteries are) but perhaps mentally and emotionally.

There is no need to cut, as it does not solve anything- it's useless (and, yes, I can say that from personal experience). Cutting can momentarily distract you from the pain you feel inside yourself but the sting from cutting isn't forever. You're scarring your body and delaying yourself the real help you need. Talk to a close family member, a friend, a doctor, yourself- anything.

No you can't and if you cut your arm where your artery is you will bleed more then anywhere else. The changes of you cutting the artery the right way is high and lot of times people make that mistake and not realizing the mistake they made. The chances of you bleeding out is a high risk. I would suggest you speak to someone you trust about this because it could lend to serious problems in the end.

Eventually, probably sooner than later, you will contract a virus because of the open wound.... Some viruses like Hepatitis C are incurable. Gangrene can be fatal as well.
If you want to continue this practice, go and get your last rites.

Yes, if you cut yourself and bleed too much it could definitely kill you.

Yes you can die either way basically. Either you'll die from blood loss or cutting the wrong place. Trust me I have been down this path and it wasn't easy to get out of..

It depend on how deep and how many exactly.If u have maybe 10 paper cuts a day u might have a shorter life span.But if u have cuts from knives 1 time a week or more u will have a shorter lifespan or even if u get shot once u will have a smaller life span. Because u will lose a lot of blood in a small amount of time that the blood can't keep on continuing or that it doesn't make it through the body fast enough.

You could either hit a vein or loose too much blood.
