Is there anything I can get prescribed to her for her anxiety? I know it sounds crazy. If dd sees a fly she trips out and I know Texas a buck load of bugs.

I wouldn't recommend any anti anxiety for a child.. most are highly addictive.

 How do I help her get over it? I only get over my fears by facing them.

I would try therapy first. They have programs for phobias like that.

Um yeah, we have tons of bugs here in Texas. Fire ants, lovebugs, ticks, flies, bees, wasps, scorpions, well, you just about name it, we got it here. Sorry to be a downer, but you did ask.
