from what Ive seen, anxiety disorder sufferers dont lead extremely stressful lives, but I think the relaxation skills and methods we learn as children have an influence.
otherwise I think its mostly hereditory, keeping in mind that previous generations often hid anything that could be thought of as a mental illness, out of shame.

Welcome to our forum. This is Kitt. You have a very strong view point and I would agree with some of it but I believe like Lynn and some others that Mental Health Illness is finally getting the attention it has needed for years.
We used to just send people that could not deal with the real world to the "Nut House" no offense intended here, but that is the term from my childhood. We also sent people with no money to the Poor Farm or their children to the orphanage. These people were certainly affected by society but could they help it by themselves...................?
These people were not after material things, they were after the basic things one needs to survive, food, clothing, medicine for the ill, trying to keep their families together. Well that is my opinion for what it is worth
Welcome to our forum and please stay with us. Keep positng.
