He fired his psych a couple weeks ago and quit taking his meds last month. He’s getting worse and I’m so worried about him, as he continually talks about wanting to die. He agreed to go to the local mental health hospital as a walk in to talk to a dr (he’s hoping that they will actually believe him and all of his stories and help him do something about them).
OMG - I hope I get a chance to talk to them also and they don’t just listen to him, cuz he’s still “with it” enuf to cover his butt and sound sane enuf to not be admitted involuntarily. I’m hoping his incessant “I’d be better off dead” and “I wish I was dead” ALL day long will assist in something and he doesn’t have to actually have threatened to kill himself or someone else. I worry about him everytime he leaves the house. I called the police a couple of weeks ago when he threatened to hurt himself and they sent 1 sherriff out and he talked his way out of it saying he was just “talking” and he woudn’t hurt himself. Cop made me feel stupid for even calling them.
I’m exhausted. There’s 5 people living here - Hubby, me, and 3 of my hubs voices (Jerry, John, and Annie - yes, they all have names and he yells at each of them all day long). I just want my husband back. 10 yrs ago, I married the greatest guy. Yes, I knew he was sick. He had been stable on Seroquel for about 10 yrs and u would NEVER know there was ANY thing wrong. Until about a year ago. I guess the meds stopped working. And it’s getting worse everyday. Thankful he’s agreed to talk to someone. I just hope he actually goes. He already says he’s not going in for inpatient treatment - he’s just going in to report his voices and get advice on how to stop them.
Do u think they’ll keep him?
