Okay I have a question for Medicine Woman Borealis... my son was showing me a new knife he had made by a local blacksmith and it's super hard steel and super sharp and he cut himself pretty deep trying to put it back in the sheath. So he's headed to the ER for stitches. He will probably get slapped with a fairly sizable medical bill for the deductible. So naturally I'm thinking alternative medicine. Do you have anything natural that could be injected as a deadening agent so that a person could do some do it yourself stitches?

They are even more careful than me in avoiding milk products.You are to a comical degree exaggerating human use of animal milk.

I really should call your department head and tell him or her how badly you are behaving while posing as a credentialed professional scientist.
'Murikka. I get cut, I go up to the local clinic, show my health card, pretty soon someone comes and deals with it. There is no charge. I've already paid my share of taxes.And in most individual cases, Canadians do not pay higher taxes than most Americans. The comparisons are complex, in part because some states don't collect any income tax,https://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0411/do-canadians-really-pay-more-taxes-than-americans.aspx

So dave, did your son get treated, or did you convince him to go all Rambo First Blood on that wound?
You don't need anesthetic to have stitches. When I was a butcher I remember a guy named bill who would stitch his own cuts because he didn't want to lose the hours it took to go to the little clinic just 5 miles down the road where everyone else went to get them. He was an odd dude but not crazy. It just isn't that bad. He was definitely the only one who did it, but it was only weird because everyone else enjoyed the break. Unpaid or not.
Why do you waste the bandwidth to basically say "nuh uh"? Why don't you just use this post to explain yourself?
