The day after I posted that story, my father was back to 'normal'. He completely forgot everything he said about wanting to get help, forgot that he agreed to stop smoking marijuana, forgot that he agreed to let us remove his guns from the house. Instead, he decided he was going to sue the hospital for keeping him there against his will, set it on fire, etc, etc. The hospitals here are not very good.. because they RELEASED this man on Friday, the 17th. He's only been on his new medication for 2 days, and he already refuses to take it anymore.... I went up to visit for the weekend, and Saturday night he left. My mother's boss called at 11:21pm to ask her if she could work the next day, and that set Daddy off. It's always been arule with him that no one calls after 10pm in his house.. and he said that if he couldn't make rules in his own house, he was leaving. He spent the night at his camp, and came back the next morning.. but he could have killed himself or someone else very easily on the wet roads with bad brakes and brain damage. Will someone PLEASE respond to all that I have written here?? I was diagnosed clinically depressed 3 years ago and cannot afford a therapist. I REALLY need help, input, ANYthing you guys could offer.
