we will be admitting difficult child to the psychiatric hospital. He is at respite this weekend and I received a call from the hospital saying they will have an opening on Monday. Our psychiatrist has one more medication (don't know what it is yet) that he wants to try with difficult child but he wants to do it in the hospital. If the new medication doesn't help I believe psychiatrist will be suggesting a residential stay somewhere. In fact, he was leaning towards that and then decided he really wants to try this medication first. difficult child is going to be so not happy to be going in to the psychiatric hospital again. I know it is probably the right thing to do but I do feel sorry for him. At home, at times, we see him really trying-right now he just doesn't have any impulse control and it is causing especially big problems at school. We always tell him it isn't a punishment and that he needs the support but I think he looks at it like a punishment no matter what we do to convince him otherwise.
