Hey Sarah,
 
I've been depressed for 5 years (one year of that I was pretty much completely in remission, so it didn't really affect me. So you could say it's been 4 years, even though it started 5 years ago). I used to cut for two years, but haven't in a little over 3 years.
 
At this stage I'm fully functional and deal really well with my depression. I still have episodes every now and then, but they don't get all that bad anymore, and I know how to handle things when they go wrong.
 
If you want someone to talk to, I'm here.

STOP. dont hurt yourself. you will only make it worse. self-harm is the worst way to solve a problem. it doesn't even solve anything. talk to a trusted adult. do something. do anything EXCEPT hurt yourself. stay strong :) xoxo

Have you gone to a local support group yet? Those can be the best for young people that are self destructive. Also taking herbal medicine like St. John's Wort can help chemically fix your feelings because depression in the brain is caused by a hormone inbalance. Finding someone to talk to, or if you're afraid to writing in a journal every day, is also the best medicine. If you are dependant on cutting find a healthy alternative, some people start with cold water to slowly go away from the path since it still gives a sensation or ink pens to get the look of what they seek. If your depression gets worse a perscription may be best, and it's nothing to be ashamed about. If you are done with this then it is the first step to admit the things you have done.
