Muslim Teens/is cuttin haram?

Question
asalaamualaicum,I really wana actually need to know if cutting and making yourself is haram. I know its haram to do stuff like that to make you pretty like plastic surgery and stuff. or just for the sake of it you just feel like it, it is haram. but what if it helps you. like seriously helps you a lot. suicide is a major sin right and I have been desperate to tie the skipping rope around my neck and hand myself or get the knife and stab into my heart or holding my breath to death and other stuff (I secretly pray that the car will crash I will go flying through window cut my neck on the glass and bleed to death but everybody else in the car wont have a single scratch, is that abad thing is it haram?). but Alhumdulilla I have resisted it. how ever I started to harm me but it made me feel so so much better. then I started to not feel like suicide that much anymore. Allah SWT gave us these bodies to take care of not to put in danger. and if you think about it this isn't harming me, im not putting me in danger because I make sure I don't cut my wrists or anywhere stupid that will kill me(even though I feel like it, I wana). and its not harming if its helping me, it takes away the pain and makes me feel better stronger. ithelps me cope. I do pray and read namaaz and the Quran and ask for Allah SWT for help and guidance. I heard not that long ago that its haram to cut and punch and other stuff to yourself but im not sure. Iv tried my very best with Allah SWT's help to not do anything like that but its so hard. when I don't do it I get proper urges to jump in front of cars. that's dangerous because I haven't done it Allhumdulilah, but what about in the feuture you cant guarantee I wont give in and lose control and have no willpower left. InshAllah that wont ever happen. I tried googling it but people were talking about cutting their hairs and it just showed the Taliban IS on images, but thank Allah I found this site. please give me a answer , please understand my situation im 13 gonna be 14 soon its not like I can walk out of here im stuck here for like how many years.i wont tell say what the pain is my problems but please know I DO NOT do this for atension if i did i wouldn't hide the marks.but please answer asap!!! THANK YOU
