My son has anxiety and took medication for 2 years. He seemed to not need it anymore. So we talked to his Dr. and took him off of it. That was several months ago. His anxiey is back. He fears that something is medically wrong with him all the time. I bought him an anxiety work book for teens. But he barely read any of it. I offered for him to go back to counseling but he doesn't want to. He won't recognize that it's anxiety. I don't know how to help him and I hate to see him go thru it. I have anxiety and go to counseling myself. He doesn't want medication for fear of side effects. I see myself in him and feel guilty and awful that he has this problem. I feel like it's my fault as his mother like he inherited it from me. I don't know how to help him.
