Abstract

Hellaane G. started to give evidence, in infancy, of schizoid traits and tendencies which became increasingly established under the influence of her upbringing. While undoubtedly she can be said to have manifested dementia præcox reactions, at least from the time of puberty, she was nevertheless able, with the exception of periods during times of great stress, to get along fairly well until shortly before her commitment. Despite her obvious inability to meet reality squarely, she, nevertheless, continued, probably chiefly because of her children, to maintain contact with it; and, as long as she was able to feel herself to be of importance to her children, she was on safe ground.
