As you'll see from our many previous discussions of self-cutting, one very reliable effect of this behaviour is that it disturbs and alarms other people in a way that is never useful, and often leads to them wantin to withdraw.
Don't blame "people" for leaving you when you do such things ( and the accompanying emotional storms ) - that's natural human behaviour. But you can learn with therap to behave differently, and to achieve different results. Similarly, don't just blame yourself for unintended results of such behaviours - again, you can take control by changing the behaviours, and achieving results you find more agreeable.
Other people do NOT insist on only perfect friends - or none of them would have any friends at all. What they can't handle, is friends who are unpredictably very alarming in creating an emoptional tsunami which makes these other people feel scared, responsible, and incapable of handling it. Of course.
You need to discuss all of these issues in detail with a good psychiarist or psychologist who has the sense to recognize that while meds may be helpful, they are USELESS in such situation unless accompanied by therapy / counselling as well.
