Hello Customer!
It sounds like you have a variety of bipolar disorder where the mania is the hyperactivity and racing thoughts and the depression is manifesting as the suicidal thoughts and cutting. You need to get treated. With endangering thoughts and cutting acitivity this warrants a visit to the emergency. There are many effective meds now for mood disorders and this needs to be officially diagnosed and categorized in order to be placed on the correct medication. You cannot go on living this way without endangering yourself and really should not wait.
Good Luck
Hope this helps!
