Q: What can I do about a parent complaint at age 35. My parents cited PTSD from the Virginia Tech massacre?

Originally, I couldn't sleep the week of the massacre when I was a manager and Virginia Tech alumni and had a routine doctor appointment that I had a rare inclusion of bringing my Mom along and discussing my concerns unplanned. I was then referred to mental health because of the massacre, I had mental health coverage at work and paid FMLA....I decided not to go out on disability with a benefit package greater than salary. I was fired after I returned to work. Fast forward to home escalation over Thanksgiving and my parents used the medical privacy of the massacre to have me committed, forced disability, forced to remain in USA, and forced to have continued treatment when it was left as needed before their complaint.
