Sounds interesting. My father was manic depressive and suffered from PSTD. My mother has ADD; they called it something different in her day, and also suffered from 'nervous breakdowns'. Me, I inherited both manic depression and ADD. Sometimes I wonder about the environment I grew up in; (regardless of the labels of their disorders) my father was a very dramatic person and my mother was simply all over the place exactly at the same time. This all seemed normal to me. Sure, sometimes I wonder if I learned my behaviors, as well as inherited my disorders. Oh, how do you separate the two?

I'll look the book up in the library,
