Hello. I'm new here. My 16yo son is a quiet boy. Was always a good kid...still is. This year was a tough one with my health and at the time my son appeared to cope. Anyhow in March of this year it became apparent he wasnt coping. Diagnosed mild depression. He's had urinary incontinence, headaches, body aches, anxiety, panic attacks. Now on medication for the incontinence and side effects cause improvement of mood. The school gave alot of support, we as a family have supported him. My concern is he just seems to have no motivation or desire...or at least he seems meloncholic alot. Being a quieter and shy child as well. And lately its like walking on egg shells all the time. We had an issue today with a driving lesson and I said to him he was capable of doing anything but he needed to understand some things dont come easy. Anyhow he just starting crying then wouldnt talk. When he's cried before he's at least talked, now he's just shut me out. Nothing I say or do seems right.
