First, you say on your profile you're male. Are you? But it generally sounds like you're getting depressed for some reason. You say cutting is the only way you can get your work done. Do you really believe that? I'm guessing not, you know you can work without doing that, you're just choosing to do that as a way to cope. But look, you're in college now, your mind is as open as it will ever be to information, and if you heard someone you knew was harming themselves because they felt they couldn't function without doing that, what would you advise them? Probably to see a therapist, yes?
