In brief: More than average
Depression runs in families & they r probably more at risk but can't give you their odds if one does whatever medicine works 4 u will likely work 4 them.

In brief: Not that much
There are many factors beyond genetics and common childhood experiences.
Get well. Your sibs can be fine either way, but their lives should be better if you are.
