Hi everyone

I just wanted say hi and maybe connect with others going through similar situations?

Mental illness and domestic abuse, mainly phsycological, and threats passive amd not so passive

Pretty sick stuff

Its the reason we are divorcing and the fact that he left us.

Been together 17 years and im feeling the loss so deeply and the sadness is overwhelming some days.
Kids are feeling it too but getting better

Other days are okay but most if the time im so sad and lonely

Lost my mum and my marriage one after the other and the grief is so overwhelming

Its neen going on for months
When does it end?

i have some dealings with relatives who have gone crazy. it is a real almost insurmountable problem.

the crazy person needs to be evaluated.
then they need drugs prescribed.
then after some period of time, they need the prescription strengths or type of drugs modified to work better, or have fewer side effects.
and finally they need to continue to take those drugs, likely for the rest of their lives.

if you can not get the crazy person to do all of that....four steps, religiously...they are not going to get better.
and believe me, due to side effects, they really REALLY do not want to take the drugs.

i feel sorry for your situation, but as far as i can tell, the above course of action is the ONLY one that actually works.

Its a heartbreaking situation. He was sectioned 2 times diagnosed delusional psycotic disorder and given anti psycotics released and left to rot his illness stops him believing he actually is ill and he believes all his delusions, for instance he is God then the devil ect..
And was still released and left in a hotel to rot and doesnt take his meds

Its hard to process the end of something in these complex circumstances 😔

My heart is heavy but yes divorce was the only option and picking up the pieces with the children

yep, same deal here. My nephew thinks he is a genious game designer who has discovered the "seccrets to the universe and time". He keeps saying he will defect to china or russia and give them the secrets to control time.

in otherwords bat **** crazy.

if he is diagnosed psychotic, and is not taking his meds, that is it. there is not other choice. you need to divorce him. and get a restraining order to keep him away. and probably a gun and some training in case he DOES break in and try to do you harm.

it is tough, but the path for you is very clear. just move on, and protect you and your kids

I'm sorry you are going through this.

The most important thing you can do right now is to take very good care of yourself. Your children need for you to do this. And you need for you to do this.

Do you have a job, or are you at stay-at-home mom?

What are you doing for yourself?

Do you have help from anyone with your children? I assume that your husband does not have them with him at any time.

yep, if you were not personally involved, all these rantings and built up alternate universe stuff would be interesting to disect.
but you, being a rational being, keep trying to logically reason with the crazy person...and you might as well be talking to a brick wall.

I lucked out, in one case, i just am out $5,000 i paid to a lawyer to get the kid off of some felony charges related to him being crazy and acting that way. With the other nephew, i just had to put in a couple day's time moving his soon-to-be ex-wive's stuff out of their appartment, for her health and safety reasons.

Please know that some of the disorder show genetic tendencies so as your children enter 17 years and up please watch them for the signs. Getting help early can make a difference.

Unfortunatly the saddest part is all his problems mental health problmes are a result from the trauma he went through as a child

But is good to know that it may not be and to watch out for these signs
Thank you
I pray that they do not get this type of illness

my wife kind of freaked out. especially when we started getting death threats from one of the nephews after helping him out.
One thing that did help is he is physically far away, like would have to drive 2 days to get here...so there is that buffer. also, he is more likely to go back to his home state if he really did become violent (also far away) and would strike there first, to settle some local scores.

How did we deal? we got a ring alarm doorbell so we could see who was at the door without opening it, alerted the local police of the happenings, and i moved a pistol with a few high capacity magazines down to a new gun safe i put in a first floor room for easy access. Other than that, we are just crossing our fingers that he does not show up on our doorstep.

We have found that the FBI/Secret Service are relatively uninterested in such maters unless 1) the threats are on a sitting senator/congressman/judge/president, or 2) there is a clear arrestable violent offense that he has done. If it is just threats....i guess they get them all day long to investigate....maybe they open a file and put the crazy guy's name into their system....if that

IF the crazy nephew was also living in our state, the police then would recommend we get a restraining order to keep him away.

ah, that is the downfall of countries that take away your right to defend yourself and your kids.

at the least i would get a baseball bat and keep it by the door.
do they allow "pepper spray" there? How about an electronic stun device like a Taser?

How about buying a guard dog, and learning how to use it?

Literally this guy could show up and do some crazy ****, and the police will be there 20 minutes later to clean up!

Its not a downfall to not have guns. It saves thousands of lives a year.
Tasers are also illegal here thank goodness. They can be really dangerous in the wrong untrained hands.
On an urgent call the police would be here very fast.
