Why do you self harm? Have you seen any professionals about it? When do you need to do it?

Have you ever seen a doctor about it?

Maybe I'm wrong.
Maybe you're just trading an emotional pain for a physical one, but that's not the answer.
Please believe me when I say cutting isn't the right answer. I know EVERYONE says this, but there's a reason, it's true.
It may not seem like it but there are better ways of dealing with your problems than harming and scarring yourself, trust me, in the future you will regret it.
If your family and friends aren't any help then believe me you're not alone. Not only is most of the forum here at most hours, but there are professionals who are there just to make sure you aren't as fucked up as you feel.
They will give you drugs to control your impulses and unwanted/uncontrollable emotions and make sure you spend your time doing something PRODUCTIVE and that you enjoy/want to do.

hmm thanks. but no body knows about my self harm. i havnt seen anyone about. the only people that know are my besties... and i am definately NOT telling a professional or my parents or anybody about it. and i dont just cut... and its not like i go round trying to get attention. i dont want people to find out.
Why do you cut then? Maybe it makes you feel better for a short while but in the long run you're gonna regret the scars and the eventual pain you will put everyone else who cares about you through. It's not just self-harm, it affects everyone around you, unless, they don't know of course.

Hun, you're 13. When I'm around your age, I felt like a dead person. Literally nothing could cheer me up. People were bitching and tired. Me? I was struggling for my life for 4 years.
But trust me, it gets better, way much better. Just have a hold of yourself, you don't need pain to buy happiness, you just need hope and a little of self-control. Do me a favor and have faith in you, okay?
You're special and you said it yourself

As for telling the parentals: The way my parents found out was from one of my friends who called my mom because she saw it getting so bad. Maybe you could ask a friend to tell your mom? That could take away a lot of stress and pressure of telling her. Please PM me if you need any specific help that you don't want to post publicly, or something you'd like to discuss in better detail. I understand how you feel, and so do a lot of people here. We're here to help, and we can be like another family to you if that's what you need.
Also, find something to distract you from this. Go outside, make a big meal or dessert for your family, start playing an instrument, play a sport, go on a walk/bike ride. Just make sure you are occupying your time with good things that will keep you happy. This will make you happier overall, and distracted from being alone and possibly picking up a razor.
Lastly, I'd like to add that scars will always get looks from people. Don't let that upset you. When you start doing better, look at your scars as just battle wounds. That's honestly what they are anyway. They represent how strong you were to stop doing it. But that's not to say that they are glamorous.
I hope I am some help to you. PM me if you need anything at all.

Everything's a lot easier if your honest about how you feel.
