Pax,

Welcome back from the land of Block.

My father thought he was going to have to have my mother committed a few different times. It was a strange dance. She would overhear my dad's conversation with the family doctor, or with her mother and the winds of change would shift just enough to make everything okay 'til the next go around.

As an adult, there was one instance when we thought it might be necessary - which put me smack dab in the middle of our weird family triangle. My father called me at work begging me to intercede. I made a few calls and was told it involved a court order. Then my father called back to let me know things had settled down, and that basically it was all my fault because she disapproved of a piece of property I was on the verge of purchasing. So I just said the hell with it and moved and didn't have a forwarding number put on my phone number. One of the most radical, butt-showing things I've done in my life.

I can't imagine that going through this process would ever be anything but uncomfortable (although as I child I sort of wished it would come to pass because I thought someone else might be able to "fix" things).

In my family it was always used as a last resort "threat" but in reality, I think it can turn out to be a very positive action (in some instances). I just always feel my insides twist for everyone involved because it seems like such a difficult task. Best wishes on this, however it turns out. As I recall, I called the courthouse for information because I didn't even know where to start. Perhaps your state has a website that offers guidelines in legal matters.
