Rec'd a call from therapist at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) regarding kt. (We've once again rescheduled her staffing for next week.) Having said that, therapist let me know that kt is "looking like a million bucks". I was just beaming at that report. kt is coming home for a 3 day pass this weekend. I think the idea to slowly transition her home is working. kt's biggest concern is that wm will come home to live. Highly unlikely, yet we don't say this out loud to her. Rather we remind her that we are a family of different addresses. It's become such a balancing act - meeting wm's needs to be a part of the family while making sure that kt feels safe & secure. (wm is sinking into a state of hopelessness.) kt has been reassured that there will be no "forced" visits with wm. And she was reminded that if she makes plans for a visit that she needs to follow through, even if just for 5 minutes - wm has feelings as well. She also needed reassurance that there will be 2 adults in the room at all times - that any visit will be highly supervised. kt is so conflicted about her twin - rightly so. The bigger picture with the visits are to teach the tweedles an appropriate sibling relationship before adulthood. We don't want them to seek each other out in an unhealthy manner when they become adults. (The plan is just once a month visits.) So the tight rope act continues...it's a tad easier knowing that kt is in such a healthy (for her) space. She's becoming more self aware with a maturity & an improved ability to state her feelings/fears with-o becoming dissociative.
