One of the warning signs of Ache's mood and situation deteriorating is, that he starts to flood especially his more public social media with positive thinking and motivational clichés. "Don't give up, because you may be in verge of success", "winners never quit", "night is darkest just before dawn", you know the type. He had been very quiet in more public social media (Twitter, Fb, the ones he does mostly for appearance, WhatsApp and Snapchat is how he actually communicates with friends) a longer time, but started with positive thinking things a week or two ago. And now has advanced to some that have rather bitter tone in them. Some appear that he was drunk sending them (bitterness and 'you will see'-mentality was quite open in those, he does know better, so being intoxicated or for other reason in very impulsive mood is almost given) and he actually deleted couple of those later. So it seems evident things are, again, going steadily South. And he is six hours from home and there was rather recent coaching change in his team, that is very unfortunate for him. The person who wanted him there and who knows him well was offered much more lucrative position elsewhere and left and was replaced by someone Ache does not know but who has a rep of being hard-nosed and old school. Not necessary a bad thing, but if they do not find common ground, Ache may rebel in rather spectacular ways. In current situation only team doctor actually knows the real depth of Ache's issues and Ache is very unlikely to voluntarily give any more away. So me and hubby are in unfortunate position to try to figure out how Ache is actually doing (when asked, he says just fine), if and when he crosses the line when we need to intervene and finding out, if that happens, what are the ways we can do that (preferably before the only way to do so is to try to call an ambulance without knowing there he actually is.) Ache has given a release for his psychiatrist to talk to us and admit hew is his patient, but the psychiatrist is also close where we live, not where Ache currently is, so he doesn't likely have much more info of local to Ache resources than we have. I doubt Ache would be willing to give any release to his therapist though we do know who he is (but without release he could not talk with us at all or admit Ache is a patient.) Team doctor is of course an emergency resource we can contact, but contacting him would be considered an extreme breach of trust from Ache. Contacting his sport psychologist with our worries would also likely not be taken well by Ache. And he of course is not willing to admit anything could be wrong himself. Argh!
