‘Researchers are learning that anxiety disorders run in families, and that they have a biological basis, much like allergies or diabetes and other disorders. Anxiety disorders may develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.’ from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America
Yes, it is understandable that anxiety should run in families. We only have to look around us at the people we know to realise that many things run in families. We learn to be who we are by the influence of our family. We eat the same food as the people in our family. We have the same genes as the people in our family.
All these things can and do affect us. We learn to cope in the same way as the people in our family. When we become adults we change who we mix with, have our own friends and are influenced by the people we mix with at work. We can even change our diet. Even if we are no longer mixing directly with our family we carry them with us for the rest of our life in the genes in our body.
We can influence how we feel by the way we think, the food we eat and the company we keep.
