No, not OUR basement! LOL... He was moved to the basement room because the manager had been complaining that his room smells. He did tell me that he's been not doing the laundry consistently again and not taking showers. I don't get it. He looked really good when we saw him two weeks ago, groomed appropriately and a little more engaged. When he called me Saturday he was very talkative and was asking all about our trip and what did we see and do, etc. That's a change, as it's usually all about him, as it is with a lot of difficult child'S. Well, then he told me about the basement move, and how a few months ago he would have been freaking out, but he's handling it better now. He goes to intensive outpatient 3 days a week ( was in the hospital in November), sees his caseworker once a week and continues to work 5 days a week 5 hours a day. And I know all this because I get the insurance statements and he gives me the wage statements and I see the Ventra (bus card) deduction every week in my e mail. This guy just thrives on the structure. And then he started going on about how he can't live in a halfway house forever, and when is this going to change. I told him that he could start the process, as I have before, by looking at the want ads, talking to his caseworker about it. He replied that he didn't like living up here. When is this going to change, he doesn't have any money, how can he do it, he has no money,etc. It's this circular argument that he keeps trying to engage me with. The talk about him moving stopped for a few months because I told him several times that I wasn't going to do the work , but now with this happening he's started up again. He really wants to move back to the south side. I'm not helping him do that so he can get back with his old friends and relapse again. And the social services for the mentally ill are not that great down here. Oh and then I was going over the finances and noticed that he spent 150.00 at Walgreens this month. He's got private insurance and medicaid picks up the copays since last summer, and there's only one medication that medicaid does not cover and it's about 50.00 a month, so the medication cost is just a fraction of that. I noticed that he's been spending anywhere from 30.00 to 90.00 a month. Now the card is my husband's so I don't review the statements but when i compared them to the insurance pharmacy records I noticed the discrepancies. I'm calling his caseworker tomorrow. He spends his money on a lot of supplements which I don't think are very good for him. And he has subscriptions to Netflix and something else. And of course, there's the cigarettes. And I think he buys a lot of frozen crap to eat because he's too lazy to cook, which they do sell at Walgreens, which is just around the corner from his place. And he works at a freaking grocery store, for God's sake!!!
