So last night on casualty, they tried to portray Self harm. It was actually so bad that it made my blood boil! The way they showed it was totally the wrong way, they showed it as if it was easy to accomplish and that it wasn’t such a big deal, the ending especially was of a woman who slashed her wrists and all you saw was people not bothered by what happened and when she was cutting she made it so easy, like not putting in any thought or effort to do it properly, if I tried to do it like this i’d barely make a scratch yet she was pouring with blood that was flowing on to the floor making a massive puddle! It’s not the fact that she bleed ridiculously alot without putting any pressure into the cut, it’s the fact that they have totally shown cutters to be desperate in everything they do, like every minute of their lives is revolved around that blade/knife, don’t get me wrong for some this may be the case but from one of the actors in this show she seriously acted as if it was ok to do this to yourself and everybody around her acted the same? I’m not sure if this makes any sense what so ever or if I just sound like a moany *****, but it really annoyed me! they even showed it off by cutting in public and allowing people to see the fresh cuts, like walking down the street doing it! In my eyes, a cutter doesnt cut for attention they do it for everything other than that!
