My son is 15 years old. He has always been anxious and the last 2 years has also battled depression. He has always been a loner and kept to himself.

Fear of confrontation

I was on my way to catch the bus. I saw a guy outside my apartment building who looked like he was urinating on the building. I said: "Are you pissing on the wall"? I didn't wait for him to turn around and answer. I had to get to the bus stop.

I dread the holidays and I feel panicky about trying to force myself to go (family is about 4 hours away by car) or making an excuse not to go. My family is aware of my problems but I don't think they realize how ...
