Ok, this week has been just one thing after the other for our guy....Monday he opened the door of a moving vehicle, his reasoning...he had to get rid of that pencil...he didn't even want it in his house...the garbage can in the garage wasn't good enough. Last night I went to check on him and found him sitting on the end of his bed (naked because he refused to put on PJ's)with masking tape wrapped very tightly around his mouth, chin, head, and part of his nose. I only heard him because I could hear him trying to get it off. I think he got scared because it was harder to breathe. Obviously our first priority was to get the tape off, he fought us the whole way because it hurt...I was more concerned with making sure he could breate first then we could go slower and get the rest. My husband had to hold him down so that I could do it. His reasoning...he wanted to make sure he didn't talk for the rest of the night?! His face and neck are all bruised (from how tight he had it), and his face is swollen and irritated from the tape. The case managers won't allow us to get us a neuro evaluation, or more intensive therapy, that was reccommended by his current therapist/psychiatrist. Hopefully this will be the even that spurs them to allow the evaluation. I contemplated calling 911, but he wasn't in distress. Looking back I probably should have because they would have placed him on phych hold, and prompted the evaluations (I think, but not sure...) I haven't had a chance to update my sig yet...he isn't on zoloft anymore.
