My mother was Bi-polar Schizoaffective and I have a fear that I too will inherit such a severe mental illness. I know people that have GAD often at times may have a fear of becoming severly mentally ill, but my fear really scares me as I am 17 and have a background of mental health problems in my mothers side of the family so the fear really takes over as I am so uncertain of the future and how I will turn out mentally,

I would be really relieved if I got any replies, so please if you have this fear or mental health in your family or any thing relating to it, leave a reply as I really need someone to talk to about it,

Many thanks Bill
