Well this certainly explains the manic episode a good buddy of mine went through a few years ago. Wow, he had all the signs of bipolar in its manic state if ever there were any.
The poor guy literally thought he had federal agents living in his attic monitoring every move he and his family made. I remember the subdivision he lived in was a one way in one way out community. He thought every black SUV coming in was one of those agents.
For months his kids weren’t allowed to ride the bus to school and his wife wasn’t even allowed to have pizza delivered to their home.
It was a crazy time following him around every where he went, spending nights in strange hotels and driving around for hours upon hours because he was too afraid to go home.
Eventually he moved away and even though we kind of lost touch these last few years, some mutual friends of ours have informed that he’s doing all right.
He somehow managed to keep his business going and remain with his family. He was always a real smart guy, it’s a shame what happened to him back there.
