I used to be on all sorts of medication when I was 15 i have been on valium, until it was stopped then i was put on prozac for a great length of time because i was suffering with PTSD because of the bullying at school ,etc i used to self harm ,i used to pull lumps out of my hair i had councilling as a teenager but i used to use a black eye pencil to cover the bald patches up so nobody could see the bald patches I couldn't tell anyone as my dad was living in a mental  hospital and my mum had everything to worry about him ,now i have low moods depression and anxiety now I take amitriptyline 2 at night ,but my anxiety is not brilliant as with all the illnesses and the breast cancer it doesn't help I have had councilling but that was only for 20 weeks and that is all finished now I dont self harm anymore as that has stopped so this is my meds now for depression Tiger
