    Both my parents were (maybe are? I dunno) depressed from when my sister was sick. My mom has been taking Effexor for 15 years (holyyyyyyyy) and she said it changed her life. Interesting.

    Both mum and dad are quiet people not sure about anxiety but they could be like me and good at hiding it. Mum I think had depression when I was younger.

    I'm pretty sure my Mom is agoraphobic and possibly had depression when I was a kid. It's hard to say, because as a kid you don't question things.

    Mum's been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and has some form of mild anxiety (Not SA). She's taking Prozac for it. I suspect my Dad has mild SA, but I've never really asked him and I don't think he'd ever go to the doctor about it.

    My mom always had some kind of anxiety, but it turned into bipolar disorder about 25 years ago.

    Not according to him, but I'd say Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Unfortunately.

    No, I think they're relatively normal (apart from the usual amount of dysfunction). I think my grandmother has depression and anxiety though. She's on meds now.

    Something is very wrong with my mum. Some kind of serious mood volatility. Like an atypical bipolar disorder. My dad is socially eccentric / autistic-like. Both of them are kind of anxious, especially my mum, but I don't think it meets criteria for a disorder.

    I never knew my father. But my mother suffers from anxiety and depression. Not as severe as mine has become though.

    My mom had social anxiety disorder when she was young, she ate her lunch in the bathroom, but she doesn't have it now. Although, I think she has OCD.
    I don't get a signature.

    My mom has a mood disorder, and takes medication for it.

    My dad probably had something, but I don't know. I never knew him.

    I think my dad has some sa as not good in social situations and would rather be at home. My mum has alot of anxieties but these didnt get bad until she was in her 40's, the dr said it was due to post traumatic stress from when my brother passed away when I was younger, she has some ocd as well but when I was younger just thought she liked a really clean house.
