Yeah, anxiety runs in my family too-my mom, sister and I have all battled it. My daughters also are showing signs of it. Nature/nurture...The good news is that you are aware of what is going on rather than starting out without a clue to what is happening! My oldest (adult) daughter is on meds. I am really encouraging her to go to therapy as a long term help. With my youngest (8) I am simply trying to help her with some cbt-which has competely changed my way of dealing with A/P. I figure if I can help her change her anxious thoughts early, this practice will help relieve many symptoms of anxiety later in her life. If you haven't already, consider some cbt. There are free on-line workshops that you can do @ your own pace. Good luck to you both!
