ticking time bomb right now. Is there some valid reason that our mental health dept. refuses to let me speak with a case manager just to get some questions answered, like the person from the state agency recommended? All they want me to do is go through their intake process and get in their system, then someone will call me. No, they don't realize it right now, but we are already in their system, just not as active clients. The reason I won't tell them this is because 18 mos ago I tod them that to avoid going thru the process again because I was trying to get an appointment with a therapist for difficult child. They would not let him/us see any therapist other than the one that had seen difficult child had seen about 8 mos. earlier. We were not happy with that therapist- he didn't know anything (he spent 3 mos going over family history, assuring me he could help if I just kept doing this), bs'd me for 3 mos, then finally threw his hands up in the air and said he didn't know what to do and had difficult child tdo'd. difficult child got to the psychiatric hospital and they said difficult child had the flu and should never had been tdo'd. I can't stand these people!! They "lost" all of difficult child's files/records EXCEPT the one saying we were already in the system- and they repetitively told me it is their policy that once you see one therapist out there, you can only make an appointment with that one- no matter how long it has been since you have been an active patient. Do you think difficult child will ever talk to that guy again? Do you think I will ever believe anything he says?
