So a few weeks ago I wrote about our struggle to get medication management for David’s psych medications. Today we did intake at Sanford Behavioral Health Bismarck. Medication success! and Medication disappointment. See, they are taking him on as a patient, but since we missed his appointment in May, he can’t be scheduled to see someone to manage his medications, and prescribe them, until November at the earliest. I asked point blank, “what is he supposed to do about medications until then?” “You can speak with his primary doctor and see if she will prescribe them for you.” What if she won’t prescribe them?

I restrained him on the steps going into the house because he was trying to hurt me. This is the same child who was trying to hurt me in the ER waiting room and then had to be restrained. David can’t keep his lies straight, and even just a read through of his notes from the current hospital stay, the charts indicate that he hasn’t been consistent in his lies
