We have had a heck of a ride. I have had little time to post with school starting and all the events. difficult child was released from residential and JJS custody about 3 and 1/2 weeks ago. This was just 3 weeks after a major melt down(almost a psychotic break) in the residential where she was able to take about 60 pills and almost killed herself.(I know big liability issues and stuff is pending.)She was in intensive care and then a few days at psychiatric hospital and then DT. They charged her for not following rules. To our surprize, the judge released her and sent her home. She was due home before school started-but when this all happened, we were not prepared for her to be sent home. We thought she would be there another 2 months as she was set back to 1st phase. They refused to take her back and we could not send her back after their negligence. Upon coming home, she ran to her 24 year old "boyfriend" within 3 days. She got in a huge fight with him and it is all over. We did our best to end it before-calling in statutory rape, having a letter sent by our lawyer, etc. nothing kept him from using and abusing her. She finially gets it.......for now. She is in school, a special school which has 3 classes in the building where I teach. She has been all 4 days. She has not run the last few weekends and seems to be doing better. I do know this will not last. She has not been able to maintain when she was home after the last Residential Treatment Center (RTC). I'm tired again managing her, but not as bad as before as she has learned some new skills and seems to care more about finishing school. I just wanted to update. I'll probably be back venting before too long. Please send your prayers our way.
