Hi everyone.....we live in GA and my daughter was just diagnosed yesterday with high anxiety. We have been seeing a counselor for 6 wks for ADHD and yesterday, she said my dd really was struggling with anxiety. I knew she was "shy" in situations....or so I thought...and at times, just thought it was a battle of wills. She seemed to dig her heels in and refuse to do something. But one time, when she wanted a certain toy at walmart, I told her to ask the employee if they had it. She literally broke out in hives.
So I have just ordered three books.....one for me to read and two for her to help her overcome some of these obstacles. Thank goodness, we homeschool. Doc said the anxiety would be worse if she was in school, put on the spot to read, etc.
Looking forward to being proactive and talking to you that know how to deal with this.
