So I just got a, well its surprise, not really good, not really bad, visit from someone in my group.
I will call her Sara, she is 22 and was diagnosed last week, and came to her first meeting today. It seems her boyfriend has kicked her out for being ‘psycho’ and she is a college student with no family within driving distance. I am letting her stay in the guest room for the night, my GF insisted, even though the rules of our group is that we contact one of the shelters right away. This time of night no one will be manning the phones anyway.
Just had to say something somewhere, and Facebook it wouldn’t be appropriate. Its one of the WTF moments in life. According to her side of things, she told her boyfriend and he gave her 30 minutes to pack her stuff and get out. He is super religious and is one of those people who believe that mental illness is the same as demonic possession or simply being evil. I have called the cops, in case he decides to destroy what she couldn’t pack into her car, and they said they will send someone to her apartment to get her things.
I want to take a short drive into town and meet with this guy, have a couple drinks, then blame the alcohol for beating him to death…
