I dated a girl for three years, serious enough she was living with me. Found out later that she had serious Bipolar II issue. She entered a rant while I was driving, from the passenger's seat she kicked the windshield several times breaking it. Started clawing her neck. She was crying and going nuts. I pulled over and we were adjacent to a firehouse.
I ran to get the firemen. They called police. Paramedics and police arrived. Her fit has long ceased, and the police are questioning us separately. Then a female not dressed like the police arrives.
I ask a fireman, "Who is that?" He says, "That is a Domestic Violence counselor." The DV counselor never came over to talk to me.
They took my girlfriend away to a mental hospital. This was two years ago, and because I have a 7 year old child, I decided to not risk dating her any longer. I had one more conversation with her, that night at the hospital.
She was sane during the conversation, and she shared some things that really shook me up. She shared that the DV lady had pushed her, saying "If you were attacked, if he has been abusing you, you don't have to hide it. You can tell me." She shared that the police took out a pad and said "I can write him up right here and now, just tell us if he touched you in any way."
At no point did a single individual show concern for me. I am a middle-aged white man, btw.
Be careful getting police involved. And be careful dating batship crazy!
