Thanks for your post Lucky Lou.  I am feeling very torn right now because my daughter would like to do online schooling and not do therapy.  She is very unhappy...sleeping all day and complaining of stomach aches and headaches.  I would like her to go to a therapeutic program at Toronto East General (Building Bridges) but I'm afraid she will resist.  I don't want to force her, but I'm scared if she doesn't get psychiatric help she will get worse.  Any thoughts on motivating a teen to accept treatment?

Hi Daniel,

Yes, staying optimistic is one of the hardest things.  I am Toronto.

Hi there,

I am the parent of a daughter with social anxiety.  She is currently attending school for only one period a day and not making much progress.  She is taking Cipralex 10 mg, but refuses therapy.  I'd love to her from anybody in the same situation.  I'm feeling a bit hopeless at the moment.  Not sure how she will get through high school.

Thanks.
