Why he is suffering so much. I hate to go down that road…..
So last year ( about this time) I posted about my son ( 16 at the time) now 17.
He was ( and is still) suffering from depression, anxiety, and a few OCD rituals. I took him to a therapist last year who did a comprehensive test on him which came back with social anxiety. And made a plan to combat that.
That plan only lasted a month or so and then right back to isolation.I started him on. Mag at that time and a few other supps . Life got busy summer came and went , well here we are back at square one a year later just as depressed lots of anxiety and just an overall lack of joy. This makes me so sad.Today we had an appt with a different therapist ( lovely lady) . After talking for 1.5 hours and filling out lots of paperwork she suggests that he needs to be on pharmaceuticals( anti depressants, anti anxiety)
This is clearly not the way I want to go as I feel it is only a band aid of sorts and will not get to the imbalances in his body that he clearly has. I will be taking him to a holistic doctor shortly . I’m wondering what tests should I be asking for.we live in Canada so the regular dr. Won’t test for anything …..
I know he needs a full thyroid panel do ne.I do think he may have a thyroid issue . His hands are always ice cold and he has a very thin outer eyebrow.
I’m hoping someone can give me a list of tests that are needed.
He is such an amazing bright ( super smart) lovely young boy with such a great future in store. I just hate to see him suffering like this . It just breaks my heart! Anti depressants will be my last resort if I can’t get to the bottom of why he is suffering so much. I hate to go down that road…..
Sorry such a long post.
