Husband needs answers

Posted , 5 users are following.

My husband is 51yrs old and for as long as he can remember, he develops a bad case of panic disorder in the month prior to his birthday and it disapates a couple weeks afterwards.  He gets very aggitated, feels the need to run, has delusional thoughts that he can not explain. overall, feels like he is "going crazy".  The only thing i can attribute to the cause is that his mother had lost a child prior to him at near full term, She was a very anxious woman and so when he was coming to due date, she was in near histeria.  Can the anxiety of a mother channel to the unborn child? How can we stop this cycle?

    Maybe if he was told this story from a early age that his mum was near hysteria up to her due date that it somehow stored in his subconscious and that's why it effects him around this time. 

    I think once we react a certain way once about a situation or event..that our minds automatically feel anxiety each time we are faced with that situation unless we get the correct treatment.

    so maybe he was told of his mums anxiety and he felt anxiety at the thought of his mums anxiety and as a result it has affected him ever since.

    Idk but I'm rather intrigued.
