    He called me at work today saying he was discharged and I could pick him up anytime. I didn't go until after work.

    He seems to be a lot better this time than his last discharge. (Where his papers listed his condition upon release as IMPROVED) He of course gave me the whole, "I feel so much better, I'm going to get a job...blah blah blah blah blah" speil again.

    I"m hoping this time did something, I really am. I'm just so tired. The did change his medications a bit. Instead of taking his Risperdal by mouth, he will get a shot every two weeks. But, that still leaves 4 other medications he has to take orally.

    Oh and his medications? He had left them at his friend's house where he was living. I went over there to get them. Wound up with a bottle of one medication and a daily storage thingy with 3 types of pills. No idea which ones they are and it's not nearly all of them but I have SOME.


    When is our get-together? I want to go NOW.


    On the plus side. He's doing the dishes.

    Positive thoughts & white light heading your way that difficult child can & will maintain out in the community. Take the skills he's been taught over the years & use them.
