Terrible Two's at 15 months?!

Alright Mommys! I need some serious help! I'm about to go a little bit crazy! (this post has horrible punctuation because I wrote this in like 5 minutes because I'm going nuts, so forgive me!)
Damon hates his naps, his bed time, and is throwing fits over everything!! He's always been a tough kid and never cries about anything! Now, if he falls down or doesn't get his way he throws himself on the floor and cries. He kicks his feet and even headbutts the floor! What the heck is going on? It's just been within the last week and I have no idea what's going on. He hates nap time. Or he hates his crib or something along those lines. He'll fall asleep on my lap and then as soon as I lay him down he wakes up and screams. If I hurry and leave he just cries forever and won't go back to bed. He used to just cry for a few minutes and fall right to sleep. Same thing with bed time. So I'm thinking separation anxiety or something like that. I googled it, of course, and it sounds like it's a common thing to get around his age. (15 months). It didn't really say anything in relation to the fits and not even really the sleeping except for the fact that they hate when you leave the room. SO I could use some help from your moms. I really hope this is just a phase and it'll be over soon. It's driving me crazy. He should not be giving up his naps this early! I'm not ready for that, and honestly he's not either. When he goes without his nap all day, come 6:00 he is sooo cranky and just cries because he's overtired. So I know he still needs his naps! But how do I get him to take them! Has this happened to anyone else? I need help!! Comments please!!
