Torn-a-part,

There's really just a couple options:

Bipolar's need their meds, and if your wife isn't willing to take her meds on her own, there is sadly nothing you can do. If she is an immediate danger to herself or others, you can call 911. Other than that, counsel and support her into seeing her doc (which I've seen from your posts isn't really an option) and taking her meds (ditto). You can't have someone "committed." Only an emergency doctor can do that.

If you're worried about your son, go through the proper legal channels to make sure he's seeing his doc and getting his meds. That's about it.

I'm sorry. You must be very worried. Stay strong.

Torn-a-part,

Don't take all the blame, you didn't know any better. You learned with time. With the restraining order, there isn't much you can do without taking legal actions yourself. Especially if she is not a threat to herself or others.

I'm afraid you have may have to watch how this one plays out from the sidelines, torn, until she specifically asks for your help.
