    Wow, thank you all for your support, this place helps soooooooo much. I did not even see this thread until now.

    difficult child will be admitted monday about 12:30. His old psychiatrist works at this facility and he wants to admit and treat difficult child. I feel good about this, he will have difficult children best interest at heart, and I could tell he enjoyed difficult child. That can help alot. I feel so much better now that there are concrete plans in place. Still, I am not great, but better. I am a little concerned about the weather as we have to go over s tricky mountain pass, butt I have driven it before when it was nasty. difficult child will go by secure transport and I will follow.

    Wrap coordinator had been great. She sent the referrals, did all the stuff for the transport, and had been a great source of support through this. I will be able to get gas cards to reimburse me for going up For admission and for family therapy. I am also going to go up there when difficult child meets with psychiatrist (either weekly or bi weekly depending am how he does). One of my coworkers got me an early christmas gift of a AAA membership, guess they want to make sure I work say least a few days a week! Lol.

    difficult children therapist is going to call s2bx once we are on the way. He deserves to know, but if he knows ahead if time he will spill the brands and my life will be he..

    I keep telling myself I have done all I can for him here, and he needs a medication wash and new medications, and it is not safe to do that here. He is currently almost maxed out on his dosages(15mg abilify twice a day with 2 to 4 mg prn, 300 mg lamictal, and 60 mg vyvanse). He may need to come off the stimulant and not have it anymore, I don't know. It is hard to turn him over to strangers, but I have to.
