I’m thinking about telling my doctor about my self harming. I started prozac 7 weeks ago and I started to self harm early December, I don’t want my doctor to think I’m crazy and separate me from my parents I don’t want to forcefully be put in a psychiatric center.

If you or somebody you know is currently struggling, please please please take 10 deep breaths and reach out to somebody. Here are a few of the many resources available

Scribble on pprs
Just do something n take out ur frustration but dnt harm self…

You should tell your doctor about you harming yourself. He won’t think that you are crazy, rather he will provide you with methods and medication of avoiding such practices. He is a doctor, he will only tell you what’s right for you, what is best for you.

God forbid, but what if in the future you reach a point where there will be no return? It is much better to take the correct medication and steps right now. Self-harm does no good!
Please tell him.

Take Care!
