  •  My eldest sis was manic/ depressive (1+ / 0-)

    She was also a genius which complicated thing sometimes because being able to make connections quickly, which others couldn't yet grasp or hadn't retained enough info to understand -- made her sound a bit crazy when she wasn't.

    I suspect her occasional hospitalizations were also tied to food allergies.   She was finally properly medicated late in life.  

    We were out of touch & family members kept it that way.  Too bad.   As I searched and found the food problems -- for my youngest --- I tested on myself and eliminated my girl's hyperactivity with diet change.    Also changed my food intake.  This included realizing I was hypoglycemic --- and thus getting my weight battle defeated.    

    As I read and read and read --- I found cases where getting control of various allergies also ended many people's mental illness cycles.

    At her funeral --- I found my siblings had known sis was hypoglycemic but thought my suggestions I'd asked them to pass on to her -- were silly.    From clues in our talk & meals --- I told both my sibs they needed to check themselves for diabetes (the other end of hypoglycemic spectrum.)  

    It wasn't until 5 years later that they both were diagnosed by their doctors with diabetes.     Sometimes, little sisters who disagree with the family religious choices  & political views ---- are actually smart about science!    ARG.

    Each case is different.    Just trying to give you a puzzle piece.      Sis's hospital stays seemed to coincide with life situations where her diet was heavily oversugared.
