Just caught David trying to sneak out of his bed. he turns over on his belly, wiggles his body over the end of the bed, and then slides on his belly across the floor one painstaking inch at a time. I have a feeling that it is going to be a long night. About an hour ago, we caught him with his brother’s phone for the third time today. Not sure how he manages that trick yet. Since we moved his brother upstairs, behind a locked door. So do I install video cameras? or wait until he goes into the residential facility and just let it go? Tweet #fighting4answrs
Remember that scene in the Goonies where the Fratellis were questioning Chunk by threatening to put his hand in the blender? And he starts talking… Everything. OK! I’ll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max’s toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play.

We met with David’s psych team today. We are doing everything right. They are surprised that it has taken us this long to seek placement for him. We talked at length about the issue with David spitting up his meds, and were told that it is all about David wanting control. Has nothing to do with him not liking the taste of his meds. As much as I like this psychiatrist, this isn’t anything that we didn’t already know. So we are going to keep on doing what we have been doing until a bed opens up at the residential facility. He can be there for as many as 7 years. Another topic was our discussion of David’s behavior and its affect on my health. Yeah, not a good conversation to have.
