My world collapsed, hospitalized, placed on a no-guns list, reached out to reddit and now I want to save my family from the monster without feeling like a monster myself?

Police and EMTs are like the worst. I mean, I know generalizing is frowned on, and I'm not suggesting no one should ever call them. But when they get called on you, it's like you're a criminal. Even if it's for a medical thing. My partner has panic attacks, and they first wouldn't fucking listen that it was just a panic, then treated her like an addict, threatened to put us both in handcuffs for trying to assert our rights, and then forcibly hospitalized her. And she wasn't even being difficult or talking about herself or anything. We were trying to be cooperative, but we were also just trying to explain that this was just a panic attack, and they wouldn't fucking have that.
