@greenpea Sounds like it is time for your son to be reassessed. Doesn't appear to be any other choice. Not when one of his voices is talking about hurting you.
Would it be easier on you to commit him, or easier to deal with the aftermath of he goes after your daughter. Neither are nice choice, but that's where you are.
You can tell the assessing psychiatrist that you promised your son you wouldn't sign him again. That you want to honour that promise, but have your son looked after. Because the psychiatrist can sign him in, if need be. It doesn't need to be you.
Won't it be great to have your son really well and functioning at his highest. He needs help.

Hey little pea @greenpea, as much as you hate hurting your son and you made a promise to him, I think he really needs reassessment. I myself am going in for reassessment at the end of the week because my entities have retruned and are violent too. I made this choice myself rather than hurting those I love. My guess is one of my meds needs tweaking.
thinking of you gentle pea!

@greenpea Hi I am sorry you are going through such a hard time. Obviously safety needs to come first especially with another child in the house. Is there an option for perhaps a private hospital or some kind of day program where it is not as horrible as the public system. I can understand wanting to keep your promise. Maybe talk to your GP or psych about different options that aren’t hospital but are still more support than home. Sorry if I am not helpful.
