Hi everyone, I've decided to join this board as a means of support...but to be honest I'm not sure I'm in the right place. I have a 14yr old highly intelligent daughter who has recently been diagnosed with depression, an eating disorder and she is also cutting. She has been taking 20mg of prozac for nearly 4 weeks and appears to be more social and less irritable. Her purging has also decreased, however she still has suicidal ideation and is still self harming...she is seeing both a psych doc and a psychologist. As the medication continues to kick in will it eventually ease the negative thoughts and self harm. Any comments would be helpful particularly if you or somebody you know has been through a similar experience. Happy New Year by the way may 2013 bring you peace and joy xx
