I have written before that we think my son is bipolar.
He could be on drugs. He continually says he is going to kill someone. He never says who he will do that to. I talks about suicide also.He is not living with us so this is long distance. In other word he says this while speaking to me on the phone. It is also usually if I have said he should get help. Or he hasn't liked something I've said. Today he talked to his sister on the phone and swore at her and said he was going to kill someone.
We talked and thought maybe the answer was to call the police where he is and have them check him out. My husband says if we do that he will know and then be more angry.
He is spending money that is not his I won't go into the details of how he is doing that. But he is now in so much trouble I am sure eventually he will get caught and thrown in jail. When he is right he is a very kind hearted person. Even now the money he is spending is not only on himself but giving people he doesn't know things He bought a car for a girl he knew for 3 or 4 days.
My daughter and I both tell him to go get help. But to be honest I am afraid he will and no one will help him.
I feel helpless at this time. I am afraid he will hurt someone but at the same time he has said this for the past year and hasn't yet. My husband feels he is just blowing off steam.
His last e-mail he told me what hotel he is in and the room number and he had never done that before. Do you think he might want us to do something. I just don't know.
I feel desperate myself. Do you have any suggestions?
