So what a day......easy child shared with school counsellor her suicidal thoughts. difficult child 2 psychiatrist was unavailable so........off to ER we go. The visit in the ER was a little too traumatic but the end result was a sooner appointment with the counselling group and an RX. All good things. There was a great ER psychiatrist.........we will see him one more time. Preliminary diagnosis was depression and anxiety and the psychiatrist says she meets criteria for ADD. (Those pesky inattentive types are so hard to diagnose). And me, I am exhausted. Not so much as her (now difficult child 1). I suppose I have yet to process the whole chance I had of losing her. At this time she is safe and no harm to herself or others. I am confident that treatment will keep her that way. Hey group, thanks for listening. everyone's life around me is So falling apart that I couldn't burden friend's and family with all this! As a previous post has stated, I too needed a soft place to land.
