Thanks for clarifying that. That's what I didn't know. It read:
"I keep trying to ask her mom for help with my wife's doctor (she lives with us) but she was told from her sister to stay out of it. She will not help. This is the third time in her life she stuck her head in the sand on her daughter. As she has gotten older though she is not as sharp. She did yesterday admit to me her mom had bipolar, at least she is fairly certain of it. Her mom is on meds too."
I didn't know if it was your wife's mom who was bipolar, or the wife's mom's mom who was bipolar.
So, my only guess was, maybe we're talking about
the wife's mom, cause maybe they don't go back all the way to the wife's grandmother.
But it's still important to know that your wife's mother's mother had bipolar.
Because, traits can skip a generation. My mother's mother had bipolar, also. But my mother did not. However, I inherited the bipolar from my grandmother, not from my mother.
Also, you said your wife's mother took medicine. Is it for emotional problems?
