Damla, if a person has mental problems, everything can look weird. But the truth is, if you do not have the right professional training, you cannot
really help him. He needs people who work with these problems every day.
But most important: it is impossible to fix these problems over a phone or internet. Ask any professional in mental health care: they must have the
person right there, in front of them. Because words on a screen tell very little. They need to see the whole person. And sometimes, they need to take
very fast action to help them. You cannot do this on a phone or internet.
You are emotionally involved. Even with an "ex", this is always true. It is always better to have professionals take care of people with these
problems, because they are not emotionally involved like we may be. They will make decisions based on only one thing: what is best for this patient,
at this moment?
They do not think about love or lost love, or good times in the past or bad times. Medical professionals have one priority: how do we help this person
and keep him (or her) alive, so they can get more help, and get better?
Leave it to the experts. This is what they do every day. Yes, it is hard for them too, but they choose to do this difficult job.
help him. Because of his mental illness, you do not know how
to help him. If he had a broken leg, would you know how to do
surgery and make him ok again? This is the same: his mind is broken and he needs expert medical care. And you do not even have the medicines he might
need to make sure he stays alive and stays safe, while they try to make his mind better again.
You did the very best thing for him. Police see people with mental problems every day. They having training about this. They know what medical experts
to call. So don't worry, you did the absolute best thing to help your ex.
One day, when he is well again, he may thank you.
