Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
We have thought about showing up at his door but feel that this will agitate him to the point where we might need to involve the authorities. We do not want to have to do this for fear it will escalate the situation to the point that he might do something drastic. He has said that he would rather we go after he gets "arrested" when he appears for jury duty (which he is willing to do on the appointed date). In his mind he has accepted his fate and will go willingly...We were hopin there is some way we can convince him to allow us to visit him and then talk him into coming home with us.
Last question....Should we inform him that we are going or just show up? Even though he thinks we don't believe him, should we go along with it or try to snap him into reality by telling him that he is not in any danger? In your opinion, do you think we wioll be able to convince him to come home with us?
