No. He doesn't want to be safe. He wants to be in the middle of the whole sha-bang helping everyone. He is ready to die for the cause. I have to remind him that he has children that need his protection.
oh, holy wow. a new twist. honestly it sounds to me like he has had a visit from an ET. either that, or a mental check-up. if he is right, we will see soon enough.

OMG!!! I forgot to tell yall about one of the weirdest things that happened. I wasn't going to post this because I was trying to keep things as private as possible but I have to if I'm to tell this story. My husband is a firefighter. The first night in the hospital he had what he calls a 'dream' (what the docs would call a delusion) that there was a fire in the hospital. He broke down the wall and woke his 'neighbor' up saying that there was a fire. They took him down and gave him a couple of injections. He says that in this 'dream' he really smelled smoke.
When the maintenance guys came to fix the wall the next day they said that the spot where he broke a whole in the wall was bad wiring that had arched.... basically they said that the whole place may have burnt down if he wouldn't have done that.
I know it sounds crazy. My husband said that if he wasn't the one that had done it he wouldn't have believed it himself. Just writing it makes me think "no one will believe this".

I wouldn't really say that your husband "woke up", because believing in a fairy tale story and talking to someone in your head is not a step in the right direction. I would say he has signs of schizophrenia, but I am not sure I am no psychologist.
I myself woke up long ago. I was raised in a church till I was 18, my parents pretty much forced it on me. and believe me I tried it. prayed, read the bible etc. it did NOTHING for me. I always got a good kick out of people claiming that giving the church money gives them such a great feeling, and if they don't then they feel so guilty. Churches do great brainwashing to weak minds.
It really makes me feel sad seeing people's lives revolving around a religion, but hey if its the only thing that makes them do the right thing... then by all means.

He obviously experienced a spontaneous pineal release of Dimethyltryptamine to his brain. His behavior afterward is the mystery.

There may be other causes of personality changes like this that are more likely, especially if Your husband is older than about 35 (after which, it is unusual for bipolar to arise). It would be wise to get a brain scan and not simply medicate, which may be covering a real underlying problem.
I am not a doctor but my wife has studied psychology and I have several bipolar friends, whose condition interests me greatly. The normal pattern for male bipolar disorder is that its onset is usually about the 18th year and often may relate to regular exposure to THC (a component of Marijuana smoke).
As you mentioned, your husband is not involved with drugs and so, along with my assuption that he is older, I would say that he is atypical for bipolar disorder (which does not necessarily mean he doesn't have it).
Has your husband any history of head trauma/blackouts/headaches/vertigo as these could become significant and indicate some other physiological problem.
If his experience is generally positive and he is "in control", perhaps you could discuss with his doctor the possibility of moderating his medication but be aware that your husband may not neccessarly know when he is "stepping over the line" and the help of a qualified therapist is very important.
I pray that he recovers.

uve literally ruined his rep with them ... forever
everything he says now once u leave and return back to ur home will be taken out of context,they will sit around questioning everything he said
you were on the way to something life changing and you gave it up and stayed in your old life
you were going to the mountain in close encounters of the third kind, now hes missed the boat that u cld have jumped on
too bad now im afraid hes at more of a risk of you being on the news,hes being led by something higher, u stopped that higher being and now ur the one leading him..
get him off those meds

This may not be a popular opinion but a drastic change in personality could be indicative of something more serious than just an psychological epiphany. I think your husband should explore all medical avenues, especially dealing with brain chemistry, tumors, etc. Don't reject the medical exploration of your husbands drastic change. See a neurologist.
