I have a 24yr. old son who has a bachelors degree in computer science. He graduated this past Dec. He still lives at home. Up until a little over a year ago he had a job and was paying his tuition. We told him he could stay as long as he was working and paying off his college. I have known over the years that he had some problems with anxiety. He has always kept to himself. Last week I found out he hasn't had a job in a little over a year.He has been pretending he had a job. He said he has tried to go to interviews but he ends up having panic attacks. He has no money or health insurance. I set up a Dr's. appointment but can't get in for another week. I'm going to find a counselor. He thinks medication will help but I think he needs someone to help him get on the right path so he can work on getting to where he can be independent. I don't know what to do right now. He basicly stays in his room on his computer. He needs more help than I can give him. Any advice would be appreciated.

A week and a half in treatment and this morning I'm telling myself it's a dream. I'm here with my kiddo telling myself that over and over again just to be present. That's a dream. All of it. The need for treatment and the things we are processing or not processing. Things just linger in the air and I feel like I need it to rain just so everything will settle.
