Dh is being very strange and I have serious concerns. He has been leaping around, how much medication he's had to take to enable that is beyond me and my god he'll pay for it later when the pain kicks in. He claims he can walk (he barely can although is managing alright on the medication in the house and I did clock him hanging on to banisters, shelves etc) but he reckons he's been better for three years, he's been pretending for three years, and that I have kept him prisoner and prevented him from having friends and a life. Apparently he thought all this was for the best until he realised over the last few months that his family all hate him. He picked up a knife earlier, to self harm and told me that if I called the police he'd claim I had pulled a knife on him! This behaviour is not normal, even for him.
Admittedly he hasn't been pleasant and is frequently abusive. This was triggered because he was really rude and horrible to dd (19) earlier and I stood up to him. Although he's been mentally unwell for a while now. He called his nurse out on Tuesday and has had some other incidents recently too.
I'm just looking to get this out somewhere and for a bit of support. I can't ring anyone and am a bit worried.

Does he have a CPN or care coordinator you could call tomorrow? Or would he come to A&E with you and maybe see the duty psych and get something to calm him down?

Does he have a diagnosis?

Why can't you ring anyone? Can you find some pretext to go outside and make a call, or lock yourself in the bathroom and get on to the emergency services who may send the police or an ambulance so that he can be taken to a place where he'll be unable to self-harm?

He has a CPN, I'll ring in the morning. He will talk her out of sending him to hospital, she will of course be agreeable because there are no beds. If it gets too much I will ring the police. Other than that I have no one to ring, no family, no friends. He would not go willingly to a and e.

I hope he isn't so wired that he'll be up all night causing sleeplessness for the rest of the household and that you will call 999 if he starts to act out/get out of hand again.
