Hitting myself whenever I'm feeling like crying

I started hurting myself a while ago but recently it just got worse. I began hitting myself more and more whenever I feel sad to prevent me from crying. I started hitting my head on the wall, slapping myself so hard to the point I just feel empty. And sometimes I feel like I deserve this, I don't know, for some reason I just can't allow myself to cry sometimes. I also believe I have an anger problem as I get angry really easily and once I do, I start cursing and say all these hurtful things to my friends, sometimes I just completely lost it and start breaking things, hurting myself or even screaming and yelling as I felt like I would die right away if I can't let the stress out.
