> From how you describe the timing, it sounds manipulative or angry. I'm sure that does happen at times. I just don't think it's necessarily true all the time.

Yes. I think I understand more. Perhaps my grandmother wasn't exactly *suicidal*. The gestures were code in her case, her case being anomaly and not the norm. Her case is one someone could point to as (erroneous) evidence of suicide as manipulative and selfish.

I find it difficult, myself, as a daughter of her daughter, and now a mother. Her
pain must have been wickedly ferocious. Being a mother made and makes everything more intense for me. The stakes are higher. Perhaps intervention for my grandmother or forgoing child rearing. This was less an option in the late 30's.

> I wish for your family's sake that medications and effective therapy had been available to her. That's an awful way to grow up.

Thank you Dinah. Me, too. It's an awful legacy.

Thanks, your response was helpful.

MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
