Such a surprise…H’s boyfriend walked out of his treatment center too. They both stayed with H’s aunt for a few days, then found an apartment and moved in on Tuesday. Since then she has been calling saying he is verbally abusive and has been drinking. My advice to her was to call someone and leave him if that was the case. She does have family where she is (as dysfunctional as they are) and there are also various government adgencies she could turn to. I don’t know if what she’s saying is true or if she’s fabricating in order for me to run up there and rescue her and bring her home.
Today the two of them got on the bus to go to his parents place for the weekend and get his furniture. Apparently they got into an argument on the bus and she jumped off the bus and then he got off too. In the middle of nowhere. In northern Ontario bush country. That was around 5 hours ago and they were about 2 hours away from his house by car. His mother has called the provincial police. That stretch of highway is narrow, unlit and sided by either bush or rock cuts. And it’s foggy and raining…
So I’m waiting.
I’m just waiting for a call. Is she dead, alive, hurt, okay, sober, drunk?
In an aside I spent the last two days at the hospital dealing with my crohn’s flare up. I am exhausted and ill. To top everything off when they did the contrast CT of my abdomen today they discovered a noncalcified nodule on the middle lobe of my right lung. Not good news.
I am numb.
