This is the first appointment with the psychiatrist since he went to the psyche ER back in March. He's knows for a week that the appointment was today and he seemed pretty calm about it. Then when he got up this morning to take his medications he started. Said he wasn't going and I couldn't make him. The only reason he has the appointment now instead of in May (which is only a few days away, anyway) is because of what he did and he doesn't think that's a good enough reason to have a to go to the psychiatrist. I remained calm, but firm and told him he had to go and that if he was going to argue about it he could argue about it with his father, which he chose to do. husband told him the same thing that I did. difficult child kept saying that it should have been kept private and I told him that he lost all rights to privacy the minute he picked up that knife. Then husband told difficult child that if need be, he would come home from work and go to the appointment with us to make sure that he behaves. difficult child left for school and was still angry that we are making him go. I told husband that I would call him at work when difficult child gets home from school and he would decide at that point of he needs to leave to come home or not. Should be an interest g afternoon.
