I have depression (diagnosed by a doctor) I'm not on anything for it but I get so low that I end up cutting. I don't even think about what I'm doing untill its done, then I have the problem of hiding it :( my mum and brother pinned me down the other day and pulled up my sleeves, lucky for me they only found scars as id managed to stop... But now they have seen I can't seem to stop, I try so much, I really do but I can't its like i black out when I do it and don't even realise what I'm doing! I need to stop I know its not good for me. I do realise there are people who will read this and think I'm being stupid as what can possibly have happened to me to make me feel this way and that I'm probably over reacting because of my age... But I've asked this question to get some advise. I want to stop, I don't want to see the pity in my brothers eyes and the disappointed look in my mums anymore its tearing me apart :'( please give me some advise.

You need to channel your emotions in a more contructive way... sometimes it maybe feels better to feel physical pain vs emotinal pain you get from depression
But try and find a better outlet for that, exercise, anything... other thiings can hurt you too but maybe better... for example it hurts and its hard to jog for 1 hour going fast... your lungs will hurt lol...
Just an example, bascially channel your energy in something else0
