I'm sorry you're going through such a hard time. First though, you have to breathe and calm down. You can be okay. I know it sucks to slip up, but it happens to everyone. Unfortunately you can't really get a whole new life, but you can change the one you've got. There's a whole thread here on TH right HERE. There are a bunch of things there you can do to distract yourself and calm the urge. If one doesn't work for you, try another. Everyone is different so what works for someone else might not work for you. But don't give up!

Cutting doesn't solve your problems. It's a quick fix and just causes you more pain in the long run. That being said, you have to really want to quit for it to work. Sooner or later you will want that. Just be safe. You can be happy. You're stronger than you think. You're in control of this.

PM me if you need to talk. Hang in there.
With hope,

Hey Dian,

I am sorry to hear about all of this. It sounds like you are going through so much right now. Like Hannah said self harm doesn't solve your problems. It is a short term solution to a long term problem because you have to keep self harming to get that release. Self harm just adds to your problems and causes more and it really isn't worth it. You don't deserve that pain. Thats not to say all the other problems self harm causes like all the isolation you get left with and the risk of infection.

If your dad and people do get on your case because you haven't done as well as they hoped then you shouldn't let them make you hurt yourself. Just think at least you tried; they might have hoped you would do better but parents are often like that and want you to do better and better when sometimes it really is unrealistic. You can stop self harming if you want to. I believe you can do it.
If you need anything at all then I am always happy to listen. Stay strong
