just feel a little broken right now... exhausted her case manager @ children's & I have been planning & preparing for this transition for over a year Monday I took her for her intake appointment (over 2 hours) today took her for her 1st case manager appointment. Angel let me sit in on both appointments and I did good to only speak when info from me was needed. I thought everything was on track and going well then at the end the CM said she would schedule another appointment. for Angel and she said "no, I don't want to come back" - CM is checking with supervisor to arrange for Angel to only see psychiatrist for medications. I know she's 18yo and its her choice, but I totally can't wrap my head around why she just shot herself in the foot? It's more then just therapy or CM she turned down; she could have access to community supports, housing, transportation, training & job search help, support groups... It was all in place and she had them close the case less then 48 hours after they opened it. I know it was selfish of me to fantasize that I was going to be able to get a life (work outside home, schedule appts for myself & keep them etc.) ... the idea that the only thing I have to look forward in life is being Angel's personal assistant makes me just want to pull the covers over my head and die.
