Since I was diagnosed with clinical depression when I look at my family history of depression and mental illness it is scary. My maternal grandmother was depressed and diagnoised as paranoid schizophrenic in the early 1960's. She was sent to an instution and given shock therapy after that she was able to funtion if she staid on her meds. My father sufferd from depression for as long as I can remember I actually think he was undiagnosed bipolar. He self medicated with presciption strenth pain killers for years. In his sixtys he became delusional and psychotic. My mother also struggles with depression. So it looks like I got the doulbe whammy when it comes to genetics and mental illness. Does anyone else get scared for your future mental health when it comes to your genetics?
