David is off close watch. They moved him off the lower level of the residence, and to the main floor. This allows them to keep a closer eye on him. I miss the little guy. I advised staff that we need to ensure that we are looking at his meds. While not a cure, they do help him. But they can only help if they are appropriately used, up to and including changing his prescriptions. Other than minor adjustments, David hasn’t undergone a full scale med wash in almost a year. Whereas before his current placement he underwent a med wash about every 6 to 8 weeks. I hope that they hear me. Tweet #fighting4answrs
My goal is to raise awareness. Please, if you read my blog, share it with others. Our beautiful son is not the only child who is struggling with mental illness. There are others out there. So please, share my blog with others that we might work together to raise awareness. Awareness begins with one voice and builds steam from there. I know quite a few parents who have been fighting for their children for a long time, far longer than we have been fighting for Marc. Voice’s get tired. People get tired. So let’s rally the troops.
Mental illness encompasses a broad range of things. Each mental illness is important.
Thank you again for your support. It means the world to my family. To me.
David is on close watch again. He is under the belief that no matter what he does there, he is going to be moved to another facility. But that is not entirely why he is on close watch. He is on close watch because: he climbed to the top of his closet and hid there. he is threatening to self harm again. he is combative. he is tearing large pieces of wood from the bottom of his bed. he is at risk. I don’t know if he is delusional or what, but I do know that in the past when he has been like this, it has had a direct affect on my health. See, I have an auto-immune disorder. Lupus. Systemic. Basically what that means is my body doesn’t like me, and when I feel stress my body goes into self attack mode and tries to hurt me by
