He said he needs clothes- he has nothing to wear- is there any way I can bring him some now? Uhmmm- No, sorry. The sw and others calling me last evening and earlier today should have mentioned that to me. I thought since he went there from juvy that he had to wear other things besides street clothes. Ok, maybe I should have known better. So, I guess I'll be going there tomorrow afternoon and Friday both. difficult child described it. It sounds like a Residential Treatment Center (RTC), not a psychiatric hospital. He said he wants to stay for 90 days. He said he'd rather be there where he has access to dr's whenever he needs them. I said ok. He said someone from our county mental health came and talked to him and is going to recommend he stay and a gal showed up- but not the one he had before- and she is signing for him to stay. (The sw asked me today if I was in agreement with him staying and I said yes, as long as he needs to) He said they all told him that if he didn't really need to stay, that he would go back to juvy, not home. I said that is true, but I didn't want him to make something up or not tell the truth just to keep from having to spend time in juvy. He said "oh, no, I just told the the truth about some things and they said that was plenty to keep 'me' here". Well, that's good, in a sad way. I told him though that he would have these charges to face and he said he knew. I told him I'm sorry it came to this, but I had to do it and I had to also get him more help but I would ask his attny to ask for charges to be reduced because we had been trying to get help before this transpired. He said ok, but he did not want the judge to think that I made these things up or pushed him to do something just to get him in there or away from home. I can't believe he even thought of that- sounds more like maybe people have been asking him those questions...???? Well, I guess he owned up to it and took responsibility and is telling them he wants help. That's my son (even if just sometimes)! Maybe I've done something right after all!! I sooo hope the judge doesn't turn him over to state or give him a long detention for these charges- if he really sticks by working things out there.
