a Residential Treatment Center (RTC) bed is about 4 weeks out. I'm terrified to let her walk the dog alone because she is going up to total strangers & introducing herself (hence they become "known" people not strangers). kt is just not processing the danger in this mindset. Her many "parts" are out & floating all over the place. We will be touring the facility kt will be going to next Tuesday; kt is refusing to be part of the tour however she must be there to meet the therapist she will work with...... It seems they may be considering a more developmental age appropriate facility versus the teen facility for which I'm just thrilled. The caveat of course is there needs to be no more than 7 years between the youngest child & the oldest child in the facility. Right now there is a 6 year old there. I can only pray that child is discharged in good health (how selfish is that?) I'm trying to get kt into psychiatrist before Easter weekend ~ we need an increase in her PRN medication or a different one. I don't think we can travel to my Dad's that weekend if I don't have that on board. I'm tired of hearing of how typical teen my kt is; there is nothing typical about behaviors ~ some of the threatening.
