There seems to be some misunderstanding of how my mother died.
There also seems to be the belief that because she was old (92) this therefore explained why she killed herself. I have been told by some that it is common for elderly people to kill themselves.
According to the medical community this is not so; a person may kill themselves if they have a terminal illness and there is no chance for them to reverse this disease due to age and severity.
My mother did not have an underlying disease.
My mother starved herself to death because she was in so much emotional distress caused by the betrayal and actions taken by her her step-children, period.
