Depression

i used to be so incredibly depressed to the point where i would cut to try to distract my emotional pain with physical pain. i started doing it more and more often to the point that everybody started to notice my eccentric behavior. one night i tried to commit suicide and cut about 26 times on my wrists. i passed out and was soon found. after that my mom got me help. about 1 month and so later i quit. 1 week after i quit i started hearing strange noises. soon it turned to voices and they r telling me to cut what should i do?

I used to have that, not voices, but like a chorus in the back of my head, underneath my everyday thoughts.. "I wish I were dead", "I hate my life", "I want to die"... I hated that, I went into therapy, it was one of the best things I ever did for myself, I learned new ways to cope with problems that life threw at me, and taught me how to respect myself more and more. Be careful though, lots of quacks out there who don't know what they're doing, try a few different people, just talk to them, you'll feel better to get something's out in the open.
