So I just got an email from the CMO about starting family sessions with difficult child at the PCR. They want me to go once a week in the evenings. Otherwise they said they can not keep difficult child in this program due to the fact that family sessions are required. I am willing to go (even though family sessions have had NO results in the past) however I refuse to go at night. The PCR is approximately an hour away in an urban area and I am not driving there and back in the dark. I can hardly drive around here at night and there's much less traffic, etc. around here. I emailed the CMO back and said I'm willing to attend but it must be mid day. If it's that important then they can make arrangements for that to happen. The CMO also said I'm required to attend these meetings "regardless of difficult child's permanency plan after the PCR". I told him that I am willing to attend but that we are still set on our decision to not allow difficult child home after this program ends. They need to find him an independent living program as was suggested by THIER Dr. at his last psychiatric evaluation in October. difficult child will be 18 in 7 months. I'm counting the days. I know it sounds so mean and so horrible but I've had enough of this! I know that him turning 18 won't make these problems magically disappear but I will have a much lesser role in all of this and maybe just maybe my life will start to return to "normal". Sorry for my rambling but I'm just so stressed! Like I don't have enough to do already! Let's add some more to my schedule!!! UGGGGGGHHHH!
