Yes, illnesses run in the family sometimes. They are curses that go from generation to generation until they are dealt with. Doctors will not tell you that because they can’t make any money telling you that.

Our physical & emotional condition is often the result of the spiritual battle taking place around us (curses & demons). Our condition is the result of our winning or losing the battles.

Depression can have a genetic component and can run in the family. Not sleeping and the eating disorder can be either a cause or result of depression.

I’ve had depression and anxiety issues for years – if you focus on taking care of yourself, and get help, you can feel better. But help is important – it’s really hard to deal with depression on your own.

Good luck.
