I first want to say welcome to TeenHelp and you came to the right place for advice.
I think you should try some alternative ways to cope with your cutting, TeenHelp has a really great list of alternatives here.
The list has been helpful to many people and although not everything on the list may work for you, some things should help.
Also, if you haven't already, I really encourage you to talk with your parents about getting help from a professional counselor or therapist.
They can help you work out why you cut and give you some really great ways of coping and learning how to control your feelings and deal with them.
You might try writing your parents a letter if you feel talking to them would be to difficult.
Also, if you cannot find anyone in your family to talk to and you really need someone, you can use a hotline.
They are free calls and you do not have to tell them your name.
I really hope this is helpful to you and that you can get help.
We are all here for you.
You can send me a PM or VM if you need someone to talk to.
Take care.

We won't solve all mysteries and our hearts will certainly break in such a Hvulnerable life, but it is the best way. We were made to be lovers bold in broken places, pouring ourselves out again and again until we're called home."
