If my recollection is accurate, you are correct that her first long trip to the funny farm was in 2011. Per Heather's report, she dropped off all the kids - including her bastard son - at Lamonte and Merissa's place before going back home to try to hang herself. LaMonte figured out what she was up to (I doubt she was very subtle) and called the cops before Misty ever got to make the attempt.Why would St. Musty have had three large trash bags full of her hoarded belongings in the VA hospital? Is this connected to her alleged first suicide attempt? I believe she claimed that was also back in 2011, but I'd have to review her posts. Was she being kept in the VA crazy house for a while and expected LaMonte to be her chauffeur afterwards?
She was obviously trying to guilt LaMonte into returning to her, as she always is. The fact that he didn't immediately come to pick her up - remember, there were four kids to care for, including her infant son and Merissa's oldest - is being called abuse. She doesn't seem to remember that by watching ALL of her children, not just his own, he likely saved her ass from DCF swooping in for Richard.
LaMonte seems like a giant pile of shit, but he's saved Misty's life twice by calling ambulances. Fuck, if my cheating ex was about to off himself, I'd hand him the rope. She's an insufferable narc for whom nothing is ever enough.
