Hi Zeez, Welcome to the depression forum, we are happy to have you. There are many people who dont understand depression or what it can do to someone exactly and often I have heard people say "they dont look depressed"....well, depression does look like anything. It is a feeling that is inside that those of us who have it carry and deal with, some of us are better at hiding it then others. But I often think people expect to see those of us with depression as zombies and that just isnt so.
I wonder if your seeing a counselor or psychiatrist? and if your taking an antidepressant for your depression? These are going to be key things in helping with it. Also, counseling is something that your going to need to do to face and deal with whatever underlying issues there are that make you want to cut and harm yourself in the manner to which you have described in your post. We cant discuss those things here on this forum as they are against forum rules but I am going to leave you a web site that you may find interesting (hopefully).
Please do feel free to post here on the depression forum, we would love to hear more from you. Take care.
