My son started having anxiety in grade 5, and as he got older it worsened. By grade 9, I was fighting with him to go to school; in grade 10, he just stopped going. I had meetings with the school. They offered a quiet room to do work and an in-home tutor. He should be in grade 12 this year, but because they only had one way to deal with this, he is now waiting to turn 18 to be allowed to get an education. We have been to the hospital because of his suicidal thoughts, only to be given a bandaid approach and a name for a psychiatrist with a two-year waiting list. A family doctor said his problem was that he was growing too fast; that’s why he felt dizzy, shaky, and sick to his stomach.
