I remember being really shy/quiet as a young child but still had a few friends, I didn't become a full on recluse till 14, I think people prone to anxiety type disorders are just more sensitive to both positive & negative stimuli in the beginning, everyone knows life is not kind to those sensitive or different for the most part in schools, other "normal" kids etc.
I think depending on what they're on the recieving end more off is what they can develop into & of course everyone is different with different childhood situations, people also have different levels of sensitivity/tolerance to get to their breaking point so it's conceivable people can make it to adulthood before the sum total of their Constitution & experiences manifest.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. - Macbeth
