We're really sorry to hear about the tough time you and your family have gone through. If you're living in Ireland (where our service is based) you should speak with social work services in the HSE about your situation and they can guide you in terms of the issue around access to your children. I'm not sure from your comment if you are in Ireland though? Wherever you are Lourdes, the local social services are the best people to speak with about your situation.
It's very important at this stressful time that you mind your own mental health. Is there a close friend or a family member you can speak with? Or maybe you could speak to your local doctor who would advise you on how to look after yourself and give you practical advise in relation to your family circumstances.
Please do speak to someone face to face to get the practical and emotional support to help you and your family through this stressful time,

I really am sorry to hear about your loss. Hurting yourself on purpose whatever you use is still a form of self-harm. Sometimes people self-harm to deal with overwhelming emotions but this is not a helpful way to cope in the long-run as it doesn’t deal with the underlying reasons as to why you are feeling overwhelmed. With the right help it's possible to learn healthier ways to cope that don’t involve hurting yourself.
It must be really hard to experience crashes of hopelessness and like not existing any more. Feeling like harming yourself and like you don't want to exist any more are feelings that should be taken seriously. It is normal to have some feelings of depression and grief when we lose someone close to us but it sounds like you are finding this really difficult and could do with some extra support.
You’ve done the right thing by coming on here and telling us about what you are going through but now you have to reach out to someone who can help you right now. Speaking to someone you trust about these feelings will help you get a fresh perspective, release tension and come up with strategies for dealing with these feelings. The idea of opening up to someone can be a bit scary at first but it will be worth it. This article about deciding who to talk to has some helpful tips for choosing who you would like to open up to.
If you don't feel comfortable speaking to someone you know then maybe you cold to talk to a professional like your GP or school counsellor. There professionals are specially trained and can link you in with help and give you and extra bit of support that we all need sometimes to get through tough times.
Keep reaching out,
I've hurt myself before but not with a razor just with my hands, is it still considered cutting? And is it a problem? Somebody very close to me died 10 months ago and I still get crashes of hopelessness and feel like simply not existing anymore, like nothing's worth it. How do I know if it's depression or just grieving?
