Hi, I am a 13 year old girl and I have had anxiety for the past 5 years. When it started, I could only get myself to leave the house for school. I thought it had all gone away, but it returned last fall. Lately, I've been considering asking for a prescription medicine to help ease it. I start high school in a couple weeks and am going to try out for the JV volleyball team, and I do not want this disorder to affect me anymore than it already has. I was wondering what you guys thought about taking meds for it, because I have no idea about the side effects, dosage size, or affectiveness of such drugs. I also don't want to have to deal with therapy. So any advice, tips, info, etc. would be great. Thnx!
