“I dont think any of us can imagine living with and loving, for 20 years, a damaged emotionless unfeeling child who may have NEVER shown any tendency to violence except against himself (cutting and burning)”
Maybe subconsciously or not, she had those guns in case her kid decided to turn on her. He did. The mistake, she didn’t get to them first.
I think you may be right
She had an underlying fear for her own life, maybe was projecting it into a “SHTF” scenario
but her real nemesis was a person she gave birth to and loved and felt protective of and responsible for, even if for 20 years he never once loved her back
It is a horrible life she lived. Can’t fault her for being a bit “off” in her preception of reality
I have read that the rest of the family has not yet even claimed her body (nor Adams)- that says a lot
