Yes,it does. Then it gets worse again. My son hit puberty on the young side, so 11 was horrible with surging hormones and anxiety. Twelve was better, and at thirteen things were pretty hard because of his anxiety. Taking him off ADHD medication, therapy (group and family), and increased exercise helped immensely. He's fifteen now and anxiety is still an issue, but he's much more self aware and tries to deal with as it happens and come to me for help. We both try to remember his triggers and to stay on top of things. He needs enough sleep, healthy food, exercise, time with friends and family, as well as alone time.
