David has a number of diagnoses. As I have discussed here before. One of them is bipolar disorder. It seems that when David went to the second facility in July for his med wash, no one thought to put him back on a med to help with the bipolar disorder.
No wonder my son is manic. And these people are professionals?
I don’t proclaim to be a medical person. I only know what I know about these disorders after years of having to deal with medical professionals on David’s behalf.
To me, it is a huge disservice to determine that the facility can’t adequately care for our son, especially when they aren’t adequately treating his mental illnesses.
Meds aren’t a cure. They are meant to augment the other treatment options and methods that are in use.
