My son is 17 and up until last year was very high functioning. He suffered some losses of close family members last year and has emotionally plummeted. He is having panic attacks several times a day and constant anxiety. We have tried multiple medications (including benzos) and nothing seems to alleviate the anxiety. He's always has anxiety but nothing like this! He can't go to school and has lost his job. When his therapist tries to get him to do exercises, he says he will "mess them up" and "I'm a failure at everything". Has anyone else been through anything like this? Even his doctors are at a loss on what to try next.
