Warning to people suffering from mental illness: If you're, say, a suicidal manic depressive, and if your boyfriend calls Project Respond for help, they may just bust into your house with the police, wake you up from your first sleep in days, and snoop through your whole house. When you're in the throes of paranoid delusions, a police home invasion tends to make you freak out worse.
After scaring the shit out of me, the police told my boyfriend it would be better if he stayed out of the house, and i was left alone and psychotic without any support or medical care for two months. Inevitably, i was repeatedly robbed and raped. I have my sanity back now, but my life is fucked. After 20 years together, my boyfriend and i can't get past it and i'm moving away. At least they didn't shoot me? I wish they did.
