Apply tissue paper and pressure. Also, we clearly have different definitions of "small nick" or you hit an artery, because I've hit my fingertip head on with a razor blade (with significant force. I still have the scar) without it bleeding overmuch. Could also be that I have more practice than is healthy at responding to cuts...

A little scratch may sting for a while, especially if it's in an area with much flexing and pressure like fingers and hands. If the area becomes red and/or swollen, or produces pus, it's getting infected. If red streaks develop up the extremity it's definitely infected and you should see a doctor, because you are not going to space today. In any case, clean any cuts with isopropyl alcohol, making sure to remove any visible debris, then preferably an antibiotic ointment, and cover with a bandaid in a way that prevents the cut from opening again all the time. After a couple days stop wearing the bandaids so the skin can toughen up again.

If the cut will not stop bleeding after a couple days, if it's over a few millimeters deep, if anything besides skin is visible in the cut, and especially for deep puncture wounds, you should hit the urgent care (or equivalent non-emergency-room medical care) to have them see if you need stitches. If you're not up to date on your shots, you may need a tetanus booster, although this seems indicated more regularly with deep puncture wounds from "dirty" objects you find lying around rather than a razor that was in your backpack.

If it's over five millimeters deep and you can still see nothing but skin, contact, in order:
a) A registered medical practitioner;
b) A psychologist;
c) The SETI folks.

I hope he's still alive... .________.

Some more pictures of my dacha.

I feel so incredibly homesick and sad because I won't be able to go there this summer.

Descan: 1) Who's Jon? 2) Why'd he be dead? 3) *hug* (This should have been 1), but I didn't think of it in time.)

Arguably he's already a progressive, just one in the style of an enlightened Kaiser.
I'm going to do the smart thing here and disengage. This isn't a hill I paticularly care to die on.

Has he tried committing suicide? Is he (for any rreason) in the hospital?

Descan, you can't be concerned without us knowing what it's about! That would be cruel.

He has depression and he has had suicidal thoughts before, but has said he doesn't think he'd ever actually do it.

He hasn't been online for 8 days and he hasn't been talking for a month and a half (so when he was online, he wasn't talking)

His mother has also threatened to kick him out in the past, so that's a possibility if he lost his job. He lives in Texas so it's not as bad as if he were on the street in Canada, but exposure is still a threat even there.

Edit: Jon is boyfriend.
