After over a year of bringing him to the hospital or calling an ambulance and the hospital just sending him home he’s finally in a facility for substance abuse and mental health. My situation is complicated because for a long time I thought he had Auto Brewery Syndrome but couldn’t find any proof for this. I would ask again and again after you are your not drinking and he’d say no.
A few months ago I started finding vodka bottles and he said he didn’t remember buying or drinking them and again I believed him. I’ve known him 16 years and he was never mind of a drinker so I couldn’t imagine it.
I finally caught him and was both pissed and relieved. I begged him to stop as he was destroying our lives and he said he would. I took away his keys, credit card and locked the shed where I found his vodka.
2 days later I came home to him unconscious and called 911 again. At the hospital he had a .43, which is normal for him, he had a .478 once.
This time they called and said they wanted to get him into a facility and I was relieved he was going to get help. He’s doing well there when seems to be really glad to be getting help. His Dr told me they think he might have dissociation anxiety and he bipolar, which would actually explain a lot. I also found out from his daughter and ex wife that they remember him over the years smelling of alcohol and that even more makes me think something has been really wrong for a very long time.
