Hey there

Firstly, depression may have taken over, but the fact that you are posting here asking for advice shows that it hasn't won yet! And you can't let it win! Have you talked to someone about the way you're feeling? I know it sounds scary, and I guess it is, in a way. But honestly, it is probably the best thing you can do. You can talk to someone and they can help you. Because you deserve it. You don't deserve to be miserable and depressed! Your life is worth so much more than that!

And cutting doesn't solve anything. I've been there, done that, but am trying to stop. I know what it's like. And it's not the only coping skill out there. There are heaps of better alternatives! There's an alternatives thread here somewhere, and there are some really good ones on there that are so much more effective than cutting! Personally, I like to run. I can beat myself up that way instead of cutting, and it works!

Hope this helped. PM me anytime if you wanna talk

Hey there,

Well done for reaching out. That's you fighting against the depression. And if you're already fighting, you can keep fighting. The next step is to reach out to someone you know, someone who can help you. This could be your parents, or a school guidance counselor, or your doctor, or any other adult. There are ways to treat depression, which can include counselling, therapy, support networks and sometimes even medication. There will be something out there that can help you, you just need to take the steps to find it.

Cutting isn't going to help you. I know that it's such an addictive cycle, but you can get out of it. Here is the alternatives thread that Hannah mentioned: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/ . Not all of them work for everyone, but there might be some things in there that could distract you from self harm help you to feel better when you feel down.

You are worth so much more than this, and things can get better. There is no easy fix, but with some effort and some support, you can feel happy again. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me.
