Sunday I had to have my sz husband involuntarily committed to the psych hospital after he threatened me with death/injury (off his meds for 1 month). I have to say the police and EMT’s were wonderful - but it was very scary/upsetting to him as they had to tranquilize him (holding him down) to get him out of the house. He’s refusing to see me. He’s been medicated - and showing signs of improvement and has accepted being where he is. One of his psychiatrists has recommended that I don’t try to see him tonight (I have tried twice-Sun, Mon, didn’t go Tuesday, but was thinking of going tonite to see if he would) as he’s better, but still not talking much/was grumpy today. His other psychiatrist said sure, give it a try. He hasn’t asked for me or mentioned my name. He did sign a form saying the doctors/staff could talk to me and let me know how he is doing, but I’m not sure how stable he was when he signed that because they had just started the medication. So I’m not too sure if I should read any acceptance of me by him in that.
Also: How did you handle your loved one not wanting to see you? Did you still try every day or did you take the staff’s advice? I think its important that he know I haven’t deserted him-even if he refuses to see me, but I’m also aware that it may upset him even more by having me show up (in any case, they won’t let me in anyway unless he says ok). Also what did you say to them to help make them understand why you did what you did (have them involuntarily committed) and did they forgive you? If they didn’t - how did you handle it when they came home?
