Hey Savanna,
You have been self harming for a long time and as you probably know it really is addictive. It can be one of the hardest things to do reach out for help, but once you have done that you can begin to feel better and recover. You have to want to get better and want to help yourself otherwise it can be more difficult. Identifying what made you first start self harming might be the first step. Then see how this has changed now. I guess it has become a coping mechanism for you when coping with difficult feelings. The sooner you reach out for help, the sooner things can begin to change. It can be really hard for parents to understand why their own child would hurt themselves. If you ever need someone to talk to then you are more than welcome to PM me.
