hi i just called husband and we talked and he's on same page as i am. i had to run it past you guys. i'm not so happy right now and getting that jump on plane feeling in my gut. i'm trying to calm myself down just ordered lunch. ok, first of all upon calling here before we flew i asked do you do what the other hospital does and take me out of the picture to force her to eat. they said NO. today they tell me if difficult child doesn't get in position to eat they'll pull me out of picture. told them THIS WILL NOT WORK, IT'S BEEN TRIED WILL BE A NITEMARE YOU DO NOT GET WHAT YOUR DEALING WITH . they say it's worked with 90% of the kids. i said well my difficult child will be the 10% that doesnt' work and i'll be living here for a year which I DO NOT HAVE. today they tell me they've now cut her liquids by mouth off. which means if she asks for apple juice or water they'll tell her no. why i ask? they tell me because it'll get her need to eat even higher. ok i say i guess that makes sense. doctor says i went over all her past diagnosis and evaluations and she doesnt' have bipolar. i said ok you have known her 7 days that's it. her pyschiatrist has known her for 4 years now and he's the latest one that diagnosis'd it. personally i dont' really care about the diagnosis yet you need to respect it and get it to know how to handle her. if you force her in anyway to eat she'll shut down on you and become the most defiant person you have ever met. i said i think we need to raise the zyprexa 7.5 isnt' going to do it. i said she's there now and still fixating on tube and still stating i will not eat. i said when does therapy start for her? it wont' here she says the therapist doesnt' have the time slot. i said woo you told me the other day she'd get it. she said well in the day clinic she will. i said THIS IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF ALIGNING THE STARS YOU SPEAK OF. this kid wont' eat without getting rid of the distorted vision she has in her mind and thought process related to eating solid foods by mouth. so all in all im very upset. they asked her if she wanted to eat breakfast tomorrow she said NO WAY. they'll pull me out of the picture this week.i 'll sit alone losing it as difficult child shuts down in a way they've never experienced. i need to get them to hear me. there is no room for trial and error here. i get i'm just her mom yet i know this kid how she ticks etc. they need to back off, add more zyprexa than bring in the food and slowly work with her. after therapy has started this week. she's in her room now hitting herself, biting herself saying she wants to die, hates her life hates herself so mad. i went to nurse and said this is what's going on i need a break. i'm done for a bit now. oh why would she do that?? WTF. if you read the diagnosis and respected other clinicians findings you wouldn't be asking this question.
