Very distressing - for you, for them, and for everyone else as well, alas.

Are they not on treatment to 'modify' such episodes? I suspect only drugs can calm them down when they are that manic.

I'm a little confused though - you say 'ex' but it sounds like you live with them, if you are talking about having to go out for walks when they get like this!

I am thinking of you, as I care for my 23-year old son who has had a series of psychotic episodes, and I have wanted to run away when things get tough. I have downloaded an app called "CALM" for myself, so I can 'escape' into a state of meditation and mindfulness for a few minutes every day - which sort of helps me a bit. :blink:

Jenny Lucas I meant for ex meaning short for very stressful they are on tables but a side effect can be manic behavior especially if drinking thanks for your reply

Ask again. And again - as politely as you can. Emphasize any danger to themselves or others if there is any - because those are the things that really get services worried because they might be accountable if something goes wrong.

Apart from that, calm or whatever helps you to bear it. I found something as stupid as the video game bejewelled blitz took my mind away from my worries!

But get help. If things are that bad, then help should be there.
