Commenti Went through some tough stuff today

  • Sorry, my suspicion skyrockets when you mention she destroyed your belongings and not her own. I spent time with someone like that for too many years and you know what? Their struggles are valid, but their abusive behavior is not. Pack her ass a suitcase, change the lock on the door, and put out an ad for new housemates. If she gives you trouble, get a restraining order.

    Yikes on fucking trikes my dude! When your housemate calms tf down you should try to get your tapestry back and ask for compensation for the stuff she broke. If she refuses, I would sue her.

    I do not know how you and your housemate came to live together, but it might help if one of you moved out. Especially so if you didn't know that your housemate was prone to having such episodes. I feel as though that won't be the last manic episode you witness from your housemate. The stress isn't worth it.

    Considering she was being physically aggressive, physically distancing yourself from her in the way you did was the best thing you could do. When she's in a better state of mind, maybe you can ask her if she has any medication for emergencies, so that way if this happens again or if you notice any tells that a psychotic episode is coming on, you can let her know you're noticing those tells and she can take that medication and potentially avoid another episode. Also, slapping or physically assaulting someone having an episode is terrible, terrible advice and will only serve to escalate the situation and set up an environment where your roommate is more likely to try to hide their tells until another episode that is potentially even worse than this one occurs.

    Sucks that what happened happened, and that the PD in your area don't know what constitutes a psychiatric emergency. If someone with a psychotic disorder is having a violent episode, you send someone who knows how to de-escalate those situations safely, no exceptions. Though cops being shitty about psychiatric emergencies is unfortunately far more common than cops not being shitty about psychiatric emergencies.

    EDIT: Glad to hear you're in a safer environment and are looking for a better housing situation! I hope that you're able to find a safer living situation, and that your roommate is able to get the help she needs. Stay safe! Also, valid point brought up by lesser-robot-cat, her struggle is valid but that doesn't excuse her behavior. I don't have personal experience in living with someone with psychosis so I just gave the best general advice I could.

    My god... That sounds horrible. Unfortunately the police won't do shit in cases like this. I hope you can fix the things she broke. Is moving out an option for you? If not, I'd probably invest some money in a good lock for your room.

    I hope you can find a way to deal with it somehow. I understand how stressful it can be to live with a person like that. A couple years ago I had an ex-gf who used to break stuff all the time, steal stuff from me & my landlord who lived in the same house, causing me to lose my apartment and almost everything I had at this point. Luckily I didn't have a lot of expensive things back then or I'd have been really pissed.

    I wish you all the best for the future. I hope you can find a good solution for that problem.

    Should've used the ancient Chinese technique known as "The Pimp hand" and slapped the shit out of her. When someone acts like a bitch, they get smacked like a bitch.

    Scary! You may need to have some outside intervention such as some sort of hotline or even de-escalation personelle. She may not only be a threat to you, but also to herself.
