i know it is unlikely to work but it is the only method i have access to. what over the counter medicine is best to take before i do it to help me bleed more? is there a way to cut the veins but avoid tendons so if i fail i still have use of my hand? and where exactly should i cut and how deep? is it extremely difficult? i have tried to do it a couple times before but my razor is extremely dull so i only got a scratch, it barely even broke the skin and was gone by the next morning. i didn’t even hit the vein or bleed at all. i will get a much bigger and sharper blade before i do it.

Are you sure you don´t have any other means like a rope or belt to hang yourself

But in case you have the courage to go through with it

Slitting your wrists is probably one of the least effective ways to kill yourself. It's very messy, and yes, if you try it you are likely to cause permanent damage to muscle, nerves, etc. I understand you're hurting a lot, but please don't try it. It'll only end up hurting you and causing its own set of issues. :(

Ive thought about it but it seems pretty sketchy despite the pop culture references. In a Dan brown novel one of the characters was almost killled by having an IV put in her arm and just opened up to the drain. I've thought about that one.

I would strongly advise against it unless you are intimately acquainted with human anatomy which doesn't seem to be the case

Don't recommend it; but aspirin will prevent your blood from clotting and help bleed out.

thanks for the reply. i’m just getting frustrated every method i start to look into is a dead end. either it won’t work and everyone tells me not to or i don’t have access to what i need. anyway thanks
