He sounded a little frustrated with me calling so often and said he didn't know what to do- every time he starts difficult child on a new medication, I'm calling five days later saying he isn't reacting well to it. Well, I guess that is true. But, it is true that difficult child seems to get worse on certain dosages or medications, so I don't know what to do. He said he didn't know what to do either, that if he knew the medication that would work with difficult child he would give it to him, but that it could take 3 years to find it and if difficult child was having that much of a problem, then take him to the psychiatric hospital. I said how, he said just take him. He said it didn't have to be right at the minute things are at their worst (my experience with psychiatric hospital says otherwise- actually, people at psychiatric hospital have directly told me otherwise). I had intended on asking him for a little help getting difficult child to be accepted in and maybe a call to the right people to help with transporting, but after the conversation went in this direction, I didn't even bother asking- he just sounded like he didn't want to be on the phone with me AGAIN. Oh yeah, he also said we needed a therapist to help us get a hold on this and help difficult child to function even when he is a little manic or doesn't feel right. I agree, but that isn't so easy to find. I know he at this point, thinks I'm just looking for excuses, but difficult child has been seeing a therapist since last June- the guy is one notch aaway from being a full-fledged quack and hasn't had a single one conversation with difficult child about cycling, much less how to handle it. Then, we started (together) with another who is supposed to be more qualified and who I thought could help with issues more along these lines. This started in Feb., and so far, he just asks questions and looks befuddled and makes those statements that we, as parents, take to mean that he just does not get the problem. Anyway... just wanted an ear to listen I guess. I feel so discouraged right now- I don't know how you guys keep hanging on sometimes.
