I awoke in the middle of the night to banging on my door. I went to the door half asleep and asked who was there. I heard “Police.” My dog was going crazy, so I slipped outside to talk to them. Someone was worried about me being suicidal and thought I may be drinking heavily on my heart medications. They were satisfied that I was sober and okay and left.
The weird thing is that all of my friends know that I am not suicidal, and would have called me first before calling the police. They do know that I am having heart issues grieving my mother’s death, along with other changes in my life. But they weren’t the ones who called. The police told me the call was anonymous.
Hearing loud banging on your door in the middle of the night is not good for a person with heart issues. It is a scary situation that increases stress.
The person that called did give the police my name and address, so the cops knew where I live. I even called my sisters to confirm it wasn’t them. I knew it wasn’t them because they have nothing to do with me.
I wonder who it was? If it was someone on this board, just call me next time. There are many instances where police end up shooting the occupant or their dog on wellness checks. It is not cool to do that unless there is a really good reason.
