Looking at the PAST PAST

Posted by MidnightBlue on July 1, 2007, at 0:24:32

I've been doing some research and have uncovered multiple family members who exhibit behavior that by most standards would be considered problematic. Let me preface this by saying we are talking about people who are long gone, some lived over 100 years ago.

While I'm sure it is impossible to diagnose these people, I was wondering what you thought their behavior could imply. More than one relative in the same family line had multiple marriages. One person had more than 8 and another who married 4 times had more than one marriage at once. This clearly seems to "run in the family" through at least four generations though it does not extend to my parents or to me.

I also found three or four relatives who spent many years in state operated insane asylums. I apologize for that reference, but that is exactly what they were called. One even referred to the patients as inmates! And no, I don't think it was a prison!

After examining my genes, I'm glad to be as sane as I am! Any thoughts on what clinical diagnoses we could have here?
