I believe that most of what we are in life is a direct result of our genetic make up -- in other words, we inherrieted from our parents much of what and who we are while the rest is "learned" from the environment we live in.

Because of this I think some of us are predisposed to having anxiety problems (more so than the "normal" person) when we're born into this life. In the beginning, it's dormant but its there underneath the surface waiting for the right moment in our lives to rear its nasty head and show itself to us. That could happen in our childhood or later on. It all depends on our biological clock and when the alarms start to sound.

How Genes influence Depression & Anxiety? The National Institute of Mental Health reported that a brain scan study discovered how a depression gene works. The researchers found that a particular gene increases susceptibility to anxiety and depression by weakening a circuit for processing negative emotion. People who have the depression-linked gene variant showed less gray matter and weaker connections in the mood-regulating circuits of the brain. Reference:  NIMH 2005

I agree with this theory.  I have a familial history of Anxiety and Depression in my family.
