...and we had no idea till this morning! Apparently, he took a bunch of Tylenol and/or Advil and wound up vomiting all day. I just assumed he had a bug because of course, he didn't say anything to me. THAT part I feel horrible about. This morning was a very grouchy morning all around and did not go well. After I left for work, difficult child, at some point, mentioned the attempt to husband who then took him to the ER and he was admitted this afternoon to his "usual" hospitalization. husband had to go to work (long story that just inflames me when I think about it...not his fault) and once I finished up a couple of HAVE to get done things, I took over at the hospital. Actually, I wasn't sure what I would be able to accomplish as difficult child is 19 and hadn't yet signed a release for me to get info or talk to anyone. He was still mad at me from the morning but did sign a release for husband. Which, by the way...made no sense because husband yelled at him too but...that's difficult child thinking for you and he did sign the release for me. I wound up transporting difficult child and was able to stay with him through the intake. He is in the adolescent ward though as he is still in high school. I am glad he's there but I don't see this doing much. He stopped taking his medications a couple of months ago but told the intake person it was because he ran out and THEY (meaning husband and I) didn't get more. That was the only time I interjected (aren't you proud of me?LOL) but his thinking is so skewed now. His suicide attempt (s...says there were 2 or three but aside from the pills, the other one sounded so outlandish that I'm not really sure what he was talking about.) was caused by things going on at home (????) and school and had absolutely NOTHING to do with the fact that he isn't taking his medications. He didn't need them to begin with so that didn't affect ANYTHING. (why didn't I figure that out a long time ago? Could have saved us miles of driving back and forth to psychiatrist!) But...at least for now he's safe and will be put back on medications. I ran into his psychiatrist while I was there and we just kind of looked at each other and gave each other one of those "what can you do" looks. She'll basically tear difficult child a new one (nicely of course) but who knows how long her talk will stick. I'm hoping to talk to a social worker and see what kind of "adult" options difficult child has. IF he can be talked into it (ha....really big if) I would love to see him in a group home/halfway house situation with services. I also want to find out what options he would have should we refuse to let him come home. If that is the only way to force his hand and make him DO something...we'll do it. I think that would go over easier for husband also rather than just kicking him out of the house. We have a family therapy (pfffft) scheduled for Friday evening and THAT idea went over well with difficult child when I told him. Eh...whatever. It's up to him at this point and even though he's still in school....he's 19. If we refuse to let him come home we don't have to worry about CPS beating down our door. That's pretty much it for now. Hopefully I'll know more in a couple of days as far as treatment plan, his level of cooperation and our (er...his) various options.
