    I am reaching out to all brothers and sisters in Christ and in the USCA. My best friend is married to a man with OCD. His progression of this illness is dramaticly increasing. He will not seek help. They have two children under the age of 7. He is suicidal and hostile toward the children. The wife, mother of the man and brother of the man have considered commiting him against his will. They are at the end of their rope and in serious need of prayer. To give you a good understanding of just how serious this situation is. The man is a avid hunter yet has sold every gun he owns because he is scared to have guns around him. His compulsion to wash his hands and arms are making hairloss on his arms. The young children see this and are beginning to pick up his habits. He speaks of killing himself almost daily. Please lift the Hudson family up in your prayers. If you go to church please place them on your churches prayer list. Thanks to all....... 12

    Thoughts and prayers from NW Missouri. The courts must first determine that this man presents a danger to himself or others before they will issue and order of commitment, so be sure that all ducks are in a row and documented. Stay safe and aspire to inspire!!!:flag:

    Girl in my training please advise them to take him or call the local law enforcement and have them to transport him to the emergency room or mental evaluation. He is headed for disaster and he can't do nothing about it. I have seen these cases turn tragic in my carrier. They are doing him more harm then good by not doing something. Tell them that the law enforcement won't put him in jail they will escort him to where he needs to be. He is a danger to himself and to others. Do not let this go any longer.

    I agree 100% , he needs professional help, before he hurts himself or someone else. SOONER IS BETTER.

    I knew a man with this kind of condition, and I beleive that he knows he is a threat to the family, that is why he got rid of the weapons, and wants to rid them of him, because his rational side is still telling him something is wrong. And he Loves his family, Prayers are going out from Kansas.They should realize he will harm himself to save others. He may be able to be helpped if they can control things before they get out of hand. My freind ended up commiting suicide. The family all knew he was ill and wouldnt make him get help.They regretted it later.

    I completely agree with you. I have pleaded with my friend to do what she has to do before this turns bad to worse. I hope and pray she listens and takes this more seriously! Thanks everyone for your prayers for my friends family!! 12
