My difficult child was released from the psychiatric hospital at 7 pm last night. We were home by 7:10 and he was off for a quick bike ride since he'd been locked up for a week. The therapist actually suggested letting him ride his bike for a while to blow off steam. At 8:20 he comes home and says "mom can you come outside for a sec. Don't be mad." I go outside and there sits a "stray" cat in a huge cage and he's got some guy who drove the both of them home. Supposedly he found the cat at the end of our street. Right away this story is not making sense to us. Why would the guy drive him home, where did the cage come from, etc? He starts getting upset and so do we. My husband actually screamed at him which is very rare for my husband. Well, that set difficult child off. He started freaking out in the middle of our driveway. Literally screaming at the top of his lungs. At that point he looked right at me and said "I hate you. I hate you so much and can't wait until you're dead." That did it for me. I called the cops. He was then taken to the ER for a screening. At that point I learned from the nurse that he really does want me dead and that he told her he's had a plan in place for some time on how to do it. Obviously after hearing that the psychiatrist agreed to readmit him however she didn't feel comfortable sending him back to the same psychiatric hospital since he had inappropriate contact with a girl there. It was mutual on both their parts so I'm assuming they made out or something. Since there were no beds available anywhere I was told that I would have to stay there with him until the morning. They wouldn't even let me leave the hospital to go home and get clean clothes, toiletries, etc. I was put in the psychiatric ward in a different room than him (since he's homicidal towards me) and had my purse, phone, shoes, etc taken away. I was then locked in for the night. Needless to say I'm NOT happy about how I was treated! This morning, after 15 hours of us being there, they finally decided to let him return to the same psychiatric hospital he had been in since there were no other beds available anywhere. So that's where he is now. Back there, less than 24 hours after he was released against my wishes. I made it clear to the psychiatric hospital, psychiatrist, and clinician that he is NOT coming home! I don't feel safe since he clearly has a death plot against me. They are calling DYFS tomorrow and reporting that I do not want him home but that's fine. Whatever. They can call whoever the hell they want at this point. As for the cat, my husband took it to the local shelter this morning. That's when he found out that it's actually the shelter's "resident" cat who lives indoors/outdoors via a pet door. So my son didn't really find this stray cat at the end of our street. It turns out he has had his eye on this cat for weeks and last night he actually rode his bike 3 miles to the shelter and took this cat and a cage that was outside. He then proceeded to try to ride home on his mountain bike that way. That's when the guy stopped and drove them home. I'm so done with all of this! So done! So angry and sad and disappointed that this is what it's come too. difficult child committed a catnapping and then had plans to kill his mother and is now locked in the same psychiatric hospital he was released from yesterday! Yay! Just what I always wanted for him! (please excuse the sarcasm...it's just how I cope sometimes) Anyway, that's the latest! Sorry so long and thanks for reading if you made it this far!
