Hi I'm new on here and I'm currently dealing with my own crippling anxiety disorder as well as my child who has been recently diagnosed with OCD AND Anxiety, it's been really difficult the past few months watching my child change in front of my eyes. A scary situation triggered this at the end of the summer my child who has severe food allergy to peanuts was in contact with the allergen at the park without me and had a severe panic attack the first one ever.. then it led to nights of waking up at night scared and then the odd behavior started to show up until it was almost taking over his life completely. He has gone to therapy and started medication and the OCD is pretty much not noticeable to an outside person even myself.. his anxiety is another issue we cannot seem to get under control. It's mostly about school and separating from me. It's heart breaking and extremely hard for me as well I have anxiety and I sometimes well most of the time I can't get past my own anxiety and I'll let him stay home when I shouldn't. I've thought of homeschooling but I'm afraid I'd make him worse. It's just so much anxiety from us both it's hard to handle
