I'm a 15 year old girl and I'm not sure what's wrong with me, I'm pretty sure that it's not my hormones. I been cutting for 4 years and I've had counselling in school but it never seemed to help. It's seemed to have gotten worse the last few months as I've been eating a lot more than usual, I feel really isolated like I have no one to talk to about anything and I'm feeling really hopeless. The feeling I have right now don't seem to be passing away and my mood swings are crazy! Recently I tried over dosing (not the first time) but I thought I done it as I slurred words and couldn't move and passed away but I woke up in the morning and been so down and low because I didn't achieve it once again. I don't really know what to do, I only know that it's going to get worse.

Thank you for asking!
you need psychiatric help. You are too young to be disappointed. Get psychiatric facility and get rehabilitation programmes. Enjoy the colors of life and don't spoil it with these compelling overwhelming depressive and swinging moods stimuli. You need help of a psychiatrist and a lot of psychotherapy session. So get some.
Take care
