If I can't go to school, is this because obsessive-compulsive disorder and major depressive disorder? I also take Prozac (fluoxetine) and Lorazepam.

NEED A THERAPIST. Hey Jan you seem to have a lot of concerns and have questions about your medications and school. Please contact your doctor and get more answers. You seem to be on the right track.
Talk w/ your folk. From your words, I can't tell if you feel too awful to go or if you are not allowed to go. And I don't know the local laws about attendance. But whatever it is that you want to understand better, talk w/ your guardian/parent - then w/ the doctor treating you and the school administration. If you want an education - I'm proud of you and hope you get help for it. Best wishes!

Discuss it w your Doctor. Anyway those 3 disorders could respond to Prozac (fluoxetine). Read more...
Yes. All may be coming from the same root cause. Addressing this in therapy, learning where the feelings come from, can be a vital step along the way to learning how to put them into perspective, and in so doing possibly to gain some control over them over time.

Is it severe if I have OCD, major depression disorder treated with Lorazepam and Prozac (fluoxetine) and I'm cutting myself and thinking about suicide?

Suicide? "severe" is a matter of opinion. MDD and OCD are just labels docs give groups of symptoms so they can group patients. No one patient has the same MDD or OCD, and no one can specifically predict if it will end, last, or recur. Suicide, however, is severe, because it's final, and you can't take it back. So if you are seriously having thoughts about how to end your life, PLEASE call 911 or go to ER. Read more...
