I live in ohio so I am not 100% sure what the involuntary commitment laws are and I hope I dont have to know. Our local police / EMS are aware of her condition and told her and I that if she calls again for any of the noises etc… they will take her to the hospital and pink slip her for a 72 hr hold. they were very clear about that. So they must have the authority and quite frankly I would sign off, which would be the hardest thing I’ve ever done. She hasnt ever been violent no matter how “crazy” she has ever gotten even before her dx. That being said i guess you really dont know what can happen.
I’m just mentally and emotionally exhausted from this last couple of weeks and I was as terrible as this sounds looking at having a break for at least 3 days so that our son and I could heal ourselves.
I just dont understand why in 3 separate cases where they knew she was not functioning well, off her meds and having delusions, hearing things, and a panic attack that they didnt keep her.
Gonna be a long ass weekend
