DeeDee, those protective orders really mean nothing. He would have to violate it before they could do anything to him and by then it might be too late. I know he's in jail now, but I'm thinking ahead to his possibly getting out. I hope that he can be transferred to a psych. ward in a hospital rather than released. I just want you to be safe and to know you don't have to worry about what he might do. He could harm you in a blackout and not even remember doing it. And he really should be the one to have to leave the house, not you. However, I'm not sure you are safe there. You see now why I was insisting on him being at least 6 mos. sober before going back to him, and why transplant centers require that? Also, remember our conversation and me telling you that he would try to manipulate you by threatening suicide? You simply cannot get involved, regardless of what he is saying or doing.
Please do call me when you can. I expect to be here the next few days and nights. I can call you right back. Try to make it after 5 PM, though, if possible.
