We visited David tonight. He wants to come home. As much as we want him to come home, home isn’t the best place for him. It isn’t just the Reactive Attachment Disorder. It isn’t just the Autism. It isn’t just the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It isn’t just the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It isn’t just the Oppositional Defiant Disorder, the Childhood Conduct Disorder, the bipolar disorder, or any of the other diagnoses that he has and has had. It is the combination of all of these things that is what is working against him. What does this mean for David? Home isn’t the best place for him. He never should have been discharged. The psychiatrist indicated that she sees no change in him now from before he began his first placement. So Monday. We are going to start the paperwork. The process. The doctor is documenting their end of the
We put David in the hospital for a psych eval today. The hardest things I have ever done involve placing him in the hospital. Today was no different. In my reality, I want my little boy to be home, surrounded by his family. safe. protected. In his reality, things are much different. We are the enemy. Today the last thing that he said to me as he walked through the doors, “good luck getting me to come home.” I will continue to fight for David, to ensure that he gets the best care possible. I would love nothing more than to bring him home and keep him here. I won’t go through the ins and outs of what happened today to push for this placement, but it was, in part, requested by David. I just delivered on my promise that certain behaviors would earn him a stay in the hospital.
Not sure where it is coming from, but it seems like he is becoming paranoid. If I make the slightest noise he starts asking me what… what.. what.. I was working on my lap top, and he thought I was looking at him. Got all upset. If we are in another room, he has to come and find out what we are talking about, because he absolutely knows for certain that we are talking about him. He likes to provoke, and then watch to see the response. It is rather creepy. and then there are the times, I will be just sitting here, and turn to find him staring at me. Makes my skin crawl.
