In brief: Suicide?

"severe" is a matter of opinion.
MDD and OCD are just labels docs give groups of symptoms so they can group patients. No one patient has the same MDD or OCD, and no one can specifically predict if it will end, last, or recur. Suicide, however, is severe, because it's final, and you can't take it back. So if you are seriously having thoughts about how to end your life, PLEASE call 911 or go to ER.

In brief: Cutting

Meds and therapy together are your best bet.
Get a psychiatric evaluation for what ails you, and what cutting means to you as well as anything else that may be going on. Then get a referral to a reputable psychotherapist to help with the emotional issues behind cutting. DO THIS RIGHT NOW. TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND GO TO YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY ROOM OR DIAL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
