Unhappy 3rd post, I know I need a life....

I just cant quit typing. GRRRRRRRR My parents are deceased, both of cancer. Dad passed away at home when I was 10 years old, mom passed on at the hospital when I was around 22 if I remember right. It gets hazy in my head when I think of how old I was. I have 3 older brothers and 1 older sister. We aren't that close but get together for Christmas. I just adore the holiday season. I'd rather eat dirt. I had emailed my oldest bro David with some questions regarding mom & dad. He had told me that he often seen bottles of green&yellow pills that were almost empty in the bathroom. I had heard that dad was depressed through his teen years, sounds too familiar cause I was highly depressed. Dad drank some, drank beer from what I remember. We both never knew of mom taking any meds for depression or bipolar. I know growing up, and thinking back to those days in that house I grew up in, I can say that she was irritable and moody at times.

My bro Alan is the only one that I know of who went on a short rampage, so to speak. Lost his job among other things.........took some antidepressants for that but in the present time hes doing better and off the meds entirely. I often wonder at times that whatever I have, which I do indeed believe is bp, regardless if its just severe depression.........I wonder if my mom had manic depression and if it couldve been diagnosed. I dont know, I know that bipolars are often of hereditary traits from their parents. That is not the case for all manics but Im sure that affects most regarding their mom or dad passing down that gene. I am going to quit now and try and take a nap. My dome is and along too much. I need to relax and slow down.
