I just talked to R, difficult child's tutor that has developed a close relationship with difficult child, and it's a lot worse than I thought. difficult child is afraid to be alone. She is almost never home alone, but she is afraid when I'm asleep, too. She hears voices and noises in the house. One time she locked herself in her room. I didn't know this. When we got easy child's car last month, difficult child was really upset when we got home. I assumed it was because we were gone longer than expected, but she said it was because easy child gets everything he wants. However, she told R that she was hearing voices and it got really loud and she was scared. R has also said that difficult child often asks her, "What did you say?" and no one has said anything. R said that at first difficult child said she knew she wasn't really hearing voices because "that's crazy", but that she's not saying that anymore; she's talking about it as if it happens to everyone. difficult child is trying to cope as best as she can and I don't know how to help her. She is a fighter and a survivor, but this...... difficult child spent last Friday with R and R told difficult child that her cousins were going to be there, but she had met them before and it would be ok. difficult child said it was fine; she only gets anxious with school. R found that really odd because difficult child is always very anxious in social situations. No one has returned my phone calls. I called county mental health again today and left another message for the intake person. I would take her to the ER to be assessed, but she won't be forthcoming. She didn't even tell me and I don't want to betray her confidence with R. I want difficult child to have someone she feels safe talking to. I don't want to take that away. I'm really trying not to freak out, but I feel like I can't catch my breath. She's just a little girl. She's my baby. This is so unfair.
