Fake post bs all the way!!!

Not only did Ernest Hemingway commit suicide, so did his father, sister and brother! Hemingway's father suffered from the genetic disease, hemochromatosis, which appears to have run in the family, what with it being genetic. With that disease, the inability to metabolize iron culminates in mental and physical deterioration. Medical records released in 1991 confirm that Hemingway was also diagnosed with hemochromatosis at the Mayo Clinic in early 1961. While at the Mayo, he was treated with ECT many, many times which completely ruined him. In a press interview five years after Hemingway's death, his then widow, Mary, stated that her husband did indeed commit suicide.

As far as cheating on his wife, he had four of them. Which one are you referring to? He cheated on his first wife, Hadley, with Pauline Pfeiffer, whom he subsequently married after the divorce from Hadley, which she had requested. He divorced Pauline after a slow split and married Martha Gellhorn whom he divorced in 1945. Before that divorce was even finalized, he asked Mary Welsh to marry him on their third meeting.

You can research this yourself on the internet. Wikipedia would be a good place to start. 'Nuff said.

The OP is just a sad little troll.

Yeah, I realized that about a half sentence through my diatribe but I'm a huge Hemingway fan ... especially the movies from the '30s, 40s and 50s, like "The Old Man & the Sea" with Spencer Tracy, "To Have and Have Not" with Bogart & Bacall, "The Killers" with Burt Lancaster & Ava Gardner ... the list goes on. Maybe she'll watch some of them and educate herself. Or maybe she'll continue to be a sad little troll ? LOL!!!

So the knowledge of his hemochromatosis as derived from the Mayo Clinic diagnosis, combined with the electroconvulsive therapy he received there, may have driven him to suicide. Sounds as if he might've been better off if he'd just decided to hold the Mayo.
