Cut on foot by glass. Have nausea. How should I care for it?

Cut my foot on a sneaky piece of glass 2 days ago while taking garbage out. Pretty good slice came off, now I am nauseous. I cleaned the hell out of it with peroxide , and some ointment, wrapped her up, she stopped bleeding about 5 minutes after it happened. Question, I do not have health insurance, therefore I cannot afford a hospital trip, which is awesome. How should I care for this slice in my foot? I tried taking the gauze bandage off of it yesterday to clean her up a little bit, but the bandaid is stuck to it and i refuse to pull it off because it feels like I am being skinned alive when I do so.
