44. And part of his management was therapy
The one thing that I can absolutely agree with from the FBI information is that Ivins struggled with some long term mental health problems. From what I remember, Ivins was hospitalized three times this year for mental health issues and he was twice found unconscious and was hospitalized.

So, you add to the increased stress he felt when the FBI cleared Hatfill and zeroed in on him (and, according to one article printed earlier this year, three others) pretty hard and often - including accusing him in a mall! - to his pre-existing mental problems and there's no wonder he was acting squirrelly at the end and feeling like people were out to get him. Add to this mix various medications, the vaccines he had to take for his job and alcohol and, overall, he was actually managing pretty well. So was his family.
