My name's Susan. I have two daughters, 14 and 16. I always worried more about my older daughter, but she is doing really well. Now my talented, gorgeous, intelligent 14 year old has an eating disorder, depression, and cuts herself. She's seeing a therapist and is on Zoloft. Is anybody else experiencing similar heartbreak?

Welcome to the group~

I didn't deal with exactly the same thing but when our dd was 14 we found out through her doctor that she was cutting herself. We put her in counselling for it. The therapist really worked to teach her appropriate coping strategies as well as self esteem building. Our dd is now almost 20, hasn't cut herself since that period of time and is currently focused on her college courses and job.

Hello, Susan. Welcome to the group. 

I have not experienced this. I have one teenage son that is 14, and he seems to not be having any of those issues. I do have other family members that have suffered from severe depression and panic attacks as adults, so I know how stressful it can be seeing a loved one go through emotional turmoil.

I'm glad your daughter seems to be getting the help she needs.
