Iv`e been reading recently that research has discovered that stress can alter the genetic make up of sperm, & mice that suffer trauma can pass it on to their grandchildren. I never knew my father`s father, but as my dad was born in 1920, I assume that his father fought in ww1. Maybe he was shell shocked, & this theory would explain a lot about the panic attacks that I had in the past. The thought that it`s down to my genes is a scary thought, & would mean that there`s nothing that I could have done to avoid it.
