After all this nonsense at school - the insessant calls of concern that kt needs immediate hospitalization for stabilization & the email of nothing new we saw psychiatrist yesterday. psychiatrist took a look at the letter and said (I quote) "I wish people would let me do my job - too many people think they know the whole picture". I burst out laugh commenting that I wondered who over at day treatment had an MD behind their names. "Makes me wonder why I spent all those years in school" was his reply. psychiatrist sat back, read the email & said "so". Let's see kt has a tremendous amount of anxiety, has survived a great deal over the last few years, the death of her father, mom's health (tho kt protests this doesn't stress her), wm's ongoing drama & then there is bio home. He turned to kt & told her that he was proud of all she has survived. I was embarrassed that he used me as an example. Asked kt if she remembered when I declared last year that I was going to be golfing - that I would find a way no matter what? kt didn't but psychiatrist did. He told kt that I had that one simple goal to give me joy - something I loved. AND I found a way to do it. He told kt that she has a good example in mom on survival. psychiatrist encourage kt to continue working with therapist on the triggers for her dissociative states i.e. the flashbacks, anxiety, whatever. He told her that he was waiting for that request for a letter of recommendation to college from her. In the meantime, psychiatrist is going to have mental health CM call the school & remind them of all the anxieties kt has survived; that there are some day, weeks that kt will act out instead of facing her own emotions. To trust me to handle when I need to call for help - I have in the past & he knows I will do so in the future. kt was beaming as we left. This is the only psychiatrist that talks with his patients - spent an hour with him.
