Yes, I've been hospitalized for my self-injury.
Warning, this is graphic. Take care if you read it.
When I was 15 I cut my wrist down to the bone, needless to say I obviously needed stitches. When I went and got them the hospital staff thought I was trying to kill myself so they sent me to the psychiatric ward. I wasn’t trying to kill myself, but in hindsight I can see that it looked like I had.
That’s the only time I’ve ever gotten stitches, since that incident I’ve learned how to take care of the wounds myself so I can avoid the ER.
