Hey there,

I'm really sorry things are hard for you at the moment.
Take a look a the first aid thread http://www.teenhelp.org/firstaid. That will help you to sort out the cuts but remember the thread isn't a replacement for seeking medical help.
You say that no one knows, perhaps it's time to talk to someone you trust, such as a close friend or family member, someone that can help and support you through this and perhaps help you get some proffessional help.

If you ever want/need to talk, feel free to PM me,
Take care and stay strong,

If you're feeling lightheaded it's best to stay seated, should you faint you won't hurt yourself... trust me

The answer to this is to seek medical help immediately.

These symptoms indicate *something*, either a loss of blood or shock...things that aren't good. Plus, the cutting itself requires psych intervention.

Tell some adult, show them what you did, get to a doc.

PM me with the link of the post you'd like me to respond to.

I am so sorry. Dont feel bad though because it's a relapse these happen and the only way to stop them is to figure out why you cut again. With light head you are probably too in shock about cutting, take deep breaths and try to relax. I know that sounds hard but put music on and breathe.
