Well lets see. My father has been diagnosed for 18 years now ever since I was born. He has his good months and his bad, but lately all hell has broken loose. He left the house and then called home saying that he was going to kill himself. This ensued lots of phone calls to police and such and such. Which made him more mad because he has an authority problem. Finally we got a hold on the situation got him home and my mother took him to the hospital. The most asinine thing is that they would not commit him, they said that he was not suicidal enought to stay...So now my poor family has to be on a suicide watch. This is sad because there is a 53, 18, 17 and 16 year old "bodygaurds" watching a 43 year old man. Well nothing holds my father in place. He has vanish. Nothing, nada, zip from him for two days. Leaving us all the worry whether if he is dead or alive. Basically this was all just a rant. I needed it to release something because if we lose out father we lose everything. It is so hard to love him but I have too. Any advice or helpful comments would be greatly appreciated.
