    I know what that's like. My grandma had Alzheimers. She died in 1998 at age 74. My grandpa had dementia with Pakinsons and died last year at age 91.

    My father. It's a bit hard to pin down.

    I know for a fact that he has been hospitalized in a psychiatric unit twice when I was a teenager (my parents divorced years before that), not sure what for. I know that when he went into early retirement the official reason was a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. He said not to worry, a colleagues wrote that diagnosis as a favor (my dad is/was both a medical doctor and a psychotherapist at different stages of his life) and that he wasn't really bipolar. Not sure what to think of it.
    I also know for a fact that he has had a problem with alcohol, probably for a looooong time. But that was never explicitely discussed, only alluded to.

    My impression is that he has suffered from serious depression more than once. He is a highly sensitive INFJ and has always had problems coping with the world.

    My grandfather has schizophrenia, my great-grandmother had dementia, and I'm pretty sure my father has some sort of mental disorder.

    Both of my parents suffered from chronic, unrelenting depression. My mother was an alcoholic. She died of alcohol induced cardiac arrhythmia from binge drinking. My dad botched his suicide attempt and suffered as a paraplegic and dialysis patient for almost 3 years before he died.

    My mother's mother was crazy as hell. I don't know if she was mentally ill or just an extremely mean, vicious woman. Chasing people with a hatchet because they disrespected her?

    I have a metabolic disorder and Grave's that mis-dx'd as BPD for a decade.

    My dad's side of the family has a mental disorder called champagne taste and they throw money around like it grows on trees. Not only did I inherit that disorder, I thoroughly enjoy it!

    One relative has a form of dementia that makes them prone to violence...but I'm not really allowed to say more.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
