afternoon. I'm not used to talking to him personally .... usually his nurse. Well, I wasn't sure why he was calling at first because he updated me on his golf game a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, he didn't do too well but took my advice on the 5th hole beer break. psychiatrist was calling about wm, who isn't & hasn't made any significant improvement over the last (almost) 3 years while in the therapeutic treatment home. We're all very frustrated. psychiatrist is very concerned - psychologically wm is just not ready to face up to many of the issues in his life. He is not motivated to move ahead - no matter what we dangle in front of his nose. No matter what consequence is given. All wm has to say is that kt is home & he isn't & that isn't fair. psychiatrist agrees with him & asks wm why he isn't at home. wm blames everyone else & of course the main reason is that I love girls more than boys. Our visit with wm this past weekend was less than special - let's just say wm became aggressive with me & his father right in front of foster mum & group home staff. wm told psychiatrist that he was angry that I wasn't getting well quickly enough. So he attacks me physically. Makes sense to all of us. (We have a therapist appointment tomorrow with wm & I'm to be surrounded by 3 big burly SWs). Geez. psychiatrist also asked to switch wm's medications out - he'd like to try out some of the medications that kt is taking & seem to work for her. As they are twins it may work. Of course, it might not work. We can only wait & see. In the meantime, we need to slow this boy down enough to get him to process all the anger & emotions that are keeping him so very stuck at the emotional age of 6. He's gettting teased at school because of his whininess, he's setting himself up to be abused by peers in ugly ways & he's just not growing. My boy is stuck. Thanks for listening. The best part of that conversation yesterday was listening to psychiatrist's version of his golf game. Wish I could meet his golfing partners & hear the other side of the story.
