Please don't beat yourself up over this. Use this as a teaching experience. I have dealt with many cutters in the past. This doesn't mean the patient is necessarily suicidal. Cutting is usually a release for anxiety or a cry for attention. Most cutters are borderline personality disorder, and there is no med for this, only counseling. Most likely the best outcome would have been active listening and validation of feelings. Then schedule a session with a therapist. Don't beat yourself up, it happens.

Wait... going to the bathroom while you're at work? That's stealing! You obviously don't have enough to do.

Kidding.

I work in acute child/adolescent psych, and some days are dominated by moments of, "What the hell did I just do?!" You are obviously competent and you care. Think of this as a message from a higher power advising you to pee more proactively, and be done with it.

It happens, don't beat yourself up, just do what you can and move on. You learned from your mistake and now know better.
