Some mood issues are normal. Teenagers often have bouts of rapidly chaging emotions.
Depression is definietely not normal though, and can exaggerate the above. Self harm is incredibly damaging. The physical elements don't concern me anywhere near as much as the mental ones.
Eating disorder is definitely bad. I looked up what you described. The fact that you named it by the disorder name makes me believe that you are extreme with it.

sure but i don't know if you could help the deperesssion. i am on two medications i take 30mgs of vivance for adhd and 1,000 mgs of depicote for ceasers and headaches and i was recently told that depicote can cause depression, but now that i think about it the depression did start before i was on depicote but has increased some since i have been taking it . but any advice you can offer would be greatly aprechiated. can you aslo help with the eating problem because now i find myself skipping meals a lot in fact i did not eat at all yesterday and have not eaten yet today

I can only offer you bits of advice, but i'll try my hardest. One would be to focus intently on one subject in particular. Something you either excel in or need to work on.  I tended to focus on school work last year and that really helped to circumvent a bit of the depression that happens. It doesn't really have to be school; it could be writing, sports, a hobby like tech theater etc, but distractions really help to soothe some of the depression pain. also, it'll help you gain new friends/get you out of your shell which can often help make you a wee bit happier. As for skipping meals, the most i can say is make a meal schedule or do workouts. working out will make you have to eat if you want to not faint from the extertion. I have to eat on a schedule or else I will truly forget to eat and begin my three week fasts again. I hope I was able to help you a little~
