I did an episode about ACEs a long time ago. It was okay but I know a bit more now. 
At the time I said something to the effect, "Childhood isn't easy even in the best of families, but what if your family of origin contributed to your current condition? I'm not saying that it has, but what if it did?"
That part was ok but listening to it now I did not fully define it or give examples. 
When you know better, you do better. This is probably a three part series about childhood events that might have contributed to an anxiety condition.
