Seriously though, is it a good idea to put "bad" stuff in your personal statement? I mean, I'm kinda worried about sounding a little too negative. Both my parents are a little nutty, and my dad has been in and out of hospitals for clinical depression most of his life. Sure, his trying to kill himself a couple of times has had on impact on who I am, and because of his craziness I've had to put myself through school, but I'm afraid I'll come off as the psychopath. Thoughts?
