Did I cause or worsen my scoliosis? Is it my fault?

Hi, I decided to post this here because I also have trouble with anxiety and OCD.

So I want to know if scoliosis is my fault... Because I had underweight at 55 kg somewhere from 16 to 19 years due to anxiety and psychosis. (I'm also male) Then at the end of 19 years we discovered a 20° S curve scoliosis. At 20 years of age my weight was completely normal again.

Do you think scoliosis is my fault though? Did the underweight cause or worsen my scoliosis? Or maybe I developed it due to poor sitting positions and posture? Does anyone know if it's something I did wrong that caused or worsened my scoliosis? Could it have been prevented?

I asked my doctor and an orthopaedic and since it's an idiopathic scoliosis they don't know the cause and couldn't answer my question. So I want to hear your opinions and assumptions.
Is scoliosis my fault and did I worsen or cause it? What did I do wrong to get it? Could it have been prevented?
