When my son was 4, his doctor said she felt he had an anxiety disorder, that he could grow out of it or he could get worse and that we could see someone. We chose to not see someone at that time and wait and see. Now my son is 9 and struggling in school. The school psychologist diagnosed him with ADD. We went to our medical for a second opinion. They disagree and say he seems to have an anxiety disorder which may challenge him to focus making it difficult for him to remember and learn. We are due to see another psychiatrist/social worker in a couple of weeks to look into this. We call my son "the mysterious one" because you can never tell what he's thinking or feeling with his "poker face". And he's been like that since the day he was born. Anytime he's ever gone to the doctor, his blood pressure has been extremely high, yet you'd never know it by looking at him. My husband and I are concerned as to what could be wrong with him and if they would want to medicate him! My mother has always struggled with anxiety and panic attacks and has been on & off medication since she was young. My husband's mother has also always struggled with anxiety and began blood pressure medication at a young age. Genetics can be tough on our kids as if life isn't hard enough for them!
