do u believe in genes and family history affecting suicide? Ive been reading a great book about how resolving your psychological issues by investing geneology ( unwanted child, suicides in family, deaths or sad events that occur on the same dates...) is helpful. Ive investigated my family as its well known that bipolar issues can be genetic. my grand pa was suffering from manic depression my 2 great grand fathers comitted suicide ( by the method I ve been comtemplating.. how weird but that might be coincidence) My mom is bipolar but will never admit it. what do u think about genetics and suicide issues? i know suicide is very personal and cant be transmitted lol but i tend to think, like in this book, that people are more at risk because of their family history background ( family secrets that can be transmitted, suicides in the family that were hidden or not overcome by our ancestors...).
