My 14 yr old son is the exact same way as you describe. However, he seems to be coming out of it slowly with the start of 9th grade. I'm actually in the process of making an appt for him to see a psychiatrist as I feel that he's been depressed and anxious for at least 5 yrs and i think short term medicine coupled with family therapy would benefit him. Not every parent has a deaf ear and I'm probably more hypervigilant than most parents because mental health issues are in our family line.

Good luck to you, I hope you find the strength within yourself to overcome this affliction...
