I'm back...A little background..My husband moved home after 15 years of working away from home, in September. He said the company had retired him. I personally think he was fired because of his drinking. Sent him 15 years ago, sober 15 years and productive, to this company. They sent me a home..a drunk!! He has isolated himself in an upstairs apartment above our garage. We have our own cars, and according to neighbors he does drive out maybe once every couple of days. We are retired, so we don't have any set schedules. About a month ago, he accused me of stealing money out of the bank (truth be told, it was a joint account and I simply transfer from that account into a bill-paying account when I pay bills - nothing new) but the only thing he has said to me in a month is "You better go to the bank and steal all the money out of the accounts"..This is so embarassing to retell...I can't believe what he has become..Anyway, he has lots of handguns upstairs and after dark, he has started turning off all lights up there and it scares me. Do you think he is capable of coming down here with one of those handguns and shooting me? Does this sound silly? It probably is, but we live way up in the mountains and if anything were to happen, no neighbors are going to hear and 911 takes awhile to respond. Sometimes they're 60 miles away.. This is not who he was, not at all, but I don't know that man upstairs. I rarely see him. In fact, in the past month, I have seen him three times. I am not even sure how much he is drinking..Should I be concerned?
