Hi Anonymous (Mom)

Thank you for your post and I'm sorry your daughter is going through such a terrible time.

What is triggering the anxiety - do you know? Has something happened or do you think she is hiding something? Is there someone/something new in her life that could be causing this? How long has this been going on?

Since she is 19, you can't make her to anything but try your best to get her to a doctor for evaluation. Unless someone can find the root cause of her distress, it cannot be treated. It may be easier for her to talk to a therapist than her Mom.

Do you think getting her to a doctor is possible (as soon as possible)?
