I'm reposting this because I didn't know how to add an update to the title. Mods - please correct however you feel best. Thanks. GG. Hi Ladies - Thank you all SOOOO much for the prayers, well wishes and ideas about alternative therapies. Hubby is still in the hospital. He is pretty emotionally fragile and unstable at this point. I hope he turns a corner quickly, because my 'inpatient' days are running out quickly. His psychiatrist did something yesterday that has left me angry, perplexed and very unsure of what to do next. In a nutshell the psychiatrist (who I really respect and have known for about 6 years) came into the meeting and basically told hubby that he had some 'inside information' via the 'holy spirit'. This info included 1) that my hubby had suffered horrible physical abuse as a child 2) hubby had raped a woman in high school 3) that hubby beat me regularly and with such ferocity that I was in danger. He also said that I was afraid for my life and afraid to come forward about the abuse. When hubby called me (crying like a baby) I was mortified by these horrible accusations. I immediately called his therapist to see what the heck was going on. The therapist verified my husbands story and claimed he (therapist) was absolutely perplexed by the whole meeting. That he (therapist) had worked with the psychiatrist for 11 years and had NEVER, EVER seen anything like this. I called my youngest brother in law just to verify that there was not physical abuse in their home. He adamantly, unequivocally denied any such abuse. I know with 100% certainly that my husband has never raised a hand to me in anger. EVER. Or our children. Beating me senseless? Preposterous. I can't disprove the accusations about the rape. But, he certainly has never been in trouble with the law. The whole thing is way off the weird-o-meter. I am angry. I am hurt. I am so confused. Of course, the doctor was gone for the weekend when I called the office to ask what the heck is going on? Do you think this could be some sort of 'shock doctor' head game? I asked the therapist if it was some sort of unconventional therapeutic technique that I'm unaware of. Could he be trying to elicit some repressed memory? (a practice frowned upon the the APA I might add). Honestly, this could not be any weirder. I would so appreciate your thoughts.
