a related topic?

I had an uncle I never met until shortly before his death.

He lived alone, in a house unfit for human beings.

No one seemed to mention him...a mystery he was.

Well it turns out that he had "episodes" and was diagnosed as schizophrenic back when everyone was diagnosed schizophrenic.

who knows how his symptoms might have been described now, I heard he had "episodes" and definite psychotic behavior, probably with a mood component.

anyway, my uncle's father, when describing what it was that made my uncle different said that "the devil got him"...how ridiculous is that?

I met him just once, a lovely man actually, quite normal looking, but how might his life have been with a greater understanding and some intervention?

pardon my tangent, 'tis a bewildering situation
