Thank you for your response.
I am so sorry to hear about your situation.
It sounds like your ex has alcohol abuse
/dependence and mood disorder such as depression and Bipolar
Her irrational and dangerous behavior including trying to hit you by car and sending emails to your friends about you may be indicative of her anger and possible mood disorder or personality disorder such as Borderline PD.
Yes, she may be dangerous to you and/or herself as she has tried to hurt you and share confidences with your friends and your parents.
I am not really sure of what she may be capable of. Is she just telling you all this as she is angry and upset ? Is she able to calm down without doing anything harmful to you again ?
Is this temporal?
I can imagine she may be at risk of harming you or herself by sending emails to others.
You may have to tell her not to do all these things again.
But, you may have to set limits with her behavior at some point - sooner or later.
You may have to tell her that you take action to stop all her threats.
For example, you may have to take a restraining order against her if she continues to harass you or threaten to kill you.
This seems to be a dangerous situation.
If she is dangerous to herself and and is unable to take care of self due to her mental problems, you need to ask her to go to an emergency room of a local hospital. If she can not or does not, you may call A LOCAL MOBILE CRISIS TEAM or PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM designated by her city and county for psychiatric evaluation and involuntary hospitalization. Or seek help immediately: Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24 hour crisis center or dial 911 for immediate assistance.
I hope you are safe and she stops threatening you for anything.
