called and asked for history. i hate it when people do that- they want to give me 15 mins at most to give 3 years of history that I have already provided documentation on. Anyway, she says she will look thru his file next week for that. I tried to summarize things the best I could, expressed my concern about whether or not he should really stay on MS's- or at least, trial him off of them while he's in there, and stressed the importance of family therapy NOW, not after he's released. I flat-out told her that if people plan on me being at the gate to pick him up when he's released, we need something done prior to then and a few sessions isn't enough. Also, if this county is looking for someone to just jump thru their ordered hoops then refuse themselves to get on board with any mental health treatment, then they need to find a paid employee because difficult child's parent is not who they are looking for. My blood pressure sky-rockets when I have to go over all that stuff because it seemed so preventable. She specifically asked about difficult child's history on probation and what had been done and not done for him. Boy, did I give her an earfull about that! So, I've either royally ticked her off and turned her against me or she will become an advocate. I'm not holding my breath, but these people need to get a clue. At least she isn't as clueless as some tdocs- she did know/understand that AD's can cause mania. That's more than a lot of them. She sounded shocked and said "did most of difficult child's charges come after prozac"? Then, I heard a couple of deep long sighs when I said he'd been trialed AD's again in Oct. followed by rx's for albuterol, steroids, and allergy medications. I guess we'll see. I went off a bit, too, about how I didn't want to be accused of witholding info when I provide it because I can't force people to pick it up and read it. She said most parents don't provide it. I said I can understand why if their county people have spent months telling them that they don't care and don't want to hear about it. The converstaion actually wasn't as hostile as my post is- going iover this stuff with people in the system just sends my blood boiling. I mailed them ALL this info over a month ago. She said she would look thru it and call me at the end of next week.
