Firstly, you should take a look at the list of Alternatives to Self Harm. This list includes options to cope with low moods that are healthier than physically harming yourself.
As for not eating, remember that it's important to get proper nutrition every day. Not only will the vitamins help you to feel your best (and happier!), but certain foods even have endorphins which improve your mood, such as chocolate. Depriving yourself of food tends to only make people feel worse as you'll feel more tired and weak. Instead of starving yourself, you should make a plan of healthy foods to eat instead. This way, you'll stay healthy and at a healthy weight for your height, and you'll feel better about yourself.
I think it would be best for you to start talking about this to someone you trust, especially if people are starting to take notice. Do you have a good friend or a family member that you trust? Just having someone whose there for you and supports you with your problems can really help you to recover.


And here you are living, despite it all.
