2066, Greater Chicago Metro Area Nuclear Power Plant

My wife, Katie McGowan, is sedated now so she won’t be posting anymore today.  I wish we could find a combination of medications that could help her.  At first, she was diagnosed as schizophrenic, but she’s actually a severe manic depressive.

While her temper tantrums are bad, I’m afraid that one day she’ll finally succeed at one of her suicide attempts.  Then there are the hallucinations.  She argues with her mother when she hallucinates.  I didn’t know Mrs. Marshall very well, but Katie obviously inherited the disease from her.  The old woman never admitted she was mentally ill and to top it off, she medicated with booze.  Katie got the brunt of her tantrums, so she has PTSD on top of everything else.  The woman’s been dead over ten years and she still berates and abases Katie.  When we announced our engagement that old hag actually told her it would never work because I was too good for her.  Didn’t even congratulate us.

And you think you have mother problems Lee?  Lila didn’t realize you’d be in any danger when she asked you to tail her friend’s wayward hubby.  She couldn’t have predicted that storm, or the murder.  She never told you that you couldn’t even get suicide right.  You don’t know how lucky you are to have a mother like Lila.
