Having been strongly influenced by my grandmother.... your story struck an "emotional" chord with me. Well done!
I liked this one! It was very well written and very clever.
I wonder if I’d have gone to her with peer problems instead of retaining them like water...

I have come to the conclusion Grandma was determined to shield me from the addiction that had taken my grandfather and metastasized to Mom,

Love the descriptive writing.

Your Grandma would have loved your tribute to her, after she poo-pooed it of course.
Clever. I have a new word in my vocab now - "cartilaginous ". Well done.
