I am very worried about my 30 year old bipolar son. He's in the Army. He's had problems his whole life but we have worked through them. He has a major problem separating "real" and "fantasy". He has lied so much that "his" reality isn't real at all. He takes on "roles" and is now acting like the shooter from the CT school shootings. He's claiming HE has shot women and children. He told me he is a mass murderer. He is on meds but they don't seem to be working. I am so worried! He is becoming more and more violent in his thoughts. He is due to be discharged (for mental issues) by October 2013, the process has started and he is more or less on base lock down. I am fearful that when he gets out he will carry out these fantasies!! I can't let him come live with us, I'd be afraid to close my eyes at night. His wife has left him and taken his kids. I am fearful for them as well. Should I call the Army base and tell them my concerns? I am scared for him and the world.
