hello Eilidh, and thanks for your kind and thoughtful words...about a month ago I did contact her (my wife) doc...we agreed that she needed inpatient care for re-assessment and meds adjustment...I had no problem convincing her to go that very same day...I simply and kindly explained to her that her meds weren't working, and that the doc needed to have her in the hospital in order to re-evaluate her condition...this was her 2d hospital stay this year...this time they decided she is bi-polar with explosive disorder, and of course they made some med adjustments--which don't appear to be working...she stayed for 10 days and didn't really want to leave--said she didn't feel "well enough"...she was supposed to have immediately started intensive out-patient therapy (9am-3pm daily) three weeks ago, but she keeps putting it off for "various" reasons...the adjustment to her meds is not helping--she stays in bed for days on end, she pulled all of her eye-lashes out which led to an infection, and she started swinging at me while I was laying in bed the other day...instinctively, I tried to grab her arm(s) and wound up with a sprained thumb that doesn't want to heal...I work with my hands--which means my thumb doesn't get much rest...I guess I'm going to call her doc again and see what he thinks should be done...thanks again.
