i talked to psychiatric on phone today to see if she kept any notes in her file on difficult child- particularly clarifying context of these blurbs in her report last year- like setting the fire in tire swing. she said "no" and she's not changing her report. i said i didn't ask her to change her report but i know when i told the docs about the incident, i didn't just say he set a fire without them asking a question or me clarifying the context, so i was just hoping that someone had something on file that showed it wasn't arson. she says he has committed arson, now, not last year. i know, but don't you think if someone reads last year's report, the assumption by other people is going to be that it was aarson then too, not he's about to set himself on fire? well, she says she diagnosis'd him with depression. and, she says, i didn't think he should have been in detention, and i didn't call to report him last year, so obviously, i didn't consider it arson last year. ok, then the h**l didn't she keep any notes? if the courts decide i'm just lying about the situation and he committed arson last year because there is nothing to prove it was his own property and he was standing there playing with it as it is flaming toward his chest, then wouldn't they end up wondering why she didn't report it? is anybody really going to believe that you can tell any psychiatric your son set his swing on fire and they don't think they need to clarify the context? then she says if he had a bipolar rule-out, i should be talking to psychiatrist about that- she doesn't test for that- she does neuropsychologist testing for behavior and educational- not psychiatric issues. Gee, I've been going to this group for almost 18 mos. and no one thought they should mention that to me after my difficult child gets out of an acute hospital diagnosis'd with- major depression, rule out bipolaar? what do we get- the prozac will take care of the dression- therapy to get lectures on starightening up and everything i did wrong in raising him.
