Other Notes: 
Oddly enough she’s a pretty happy 16 year old. Her quick wit and sense of humour are intact! She is anxious to a degree but she does not suffer from anxiety. No matter what any doctor who only spends 5 minutes with her has to say. She has been dealing with this for 8 years, it is NOT her imagination.
