So I went to family therapy today. Session went well, had wrap care coordinator on speaker before difficult child came in. She basically told therapist to quit trying to educate me and trying to teach me how to avoid difficult child's triggers, I already know that. I started listing off books i had read about various diagnoses, and the therapist cut me off after I listed 5 and clearly was going to keep going! lol. Family therapy went better than it had in the past, difficult child has a really hard time thinking back to when he was home (he said that was a long time ago, it was a month but does feel like years) and really could not identify things to work on. Then therapist started asking what was not ok in our house. He could list those off. She asked him about his throat clearing, and if he knew he was doing it. sigh. Of course he knows he does it, he just did it!!!!!!!!! I was supposed to see psychiatrist at 4pm with difficult child. Apparently she went home sick, but no one called me untill we got back. It would have been nice to leave a little earlier, as difficult child and I were running out of cheap things to do. He even taught me how to play magic!! So I asked when the next appointment was?? The receptionist told me 12/19. WTH????? OHhhh no, no way. So I calmly, quietly and politely asked her who I could speak with if that was not appropriate? and yes, that was exactly how it went. She had the phone to her ear in seconds. Offered me an appointment tomorrow. Is psychiatrist going to be feeling well enough? I asked. How about Thursday? She said. I said yes. So if i had not been there to push, he would have gone 2 more weeks with a tic, a funny leg movement, and on medications that are making things worse???? Is that what foster kids go through, as they have no one to advocate for them??? That is horrible. I am seriously now getting ticked off, and not sure if it is at the facility or psychiatrist. psychiatrist changed medications twice and I was notified after, big no no, she blew off difficult child's tics last week as allergies (even the family therapist says they are tics), and then tries to have him go 2 weeks between appts? If I was not seeing positive things in difficult child from just being there? His hiney would have been in the car with me going home. therapist did appologize for allowing difficult child to talk to s2bx without a therapist present, and did talk to staff and that should not happen again. I was going to call my psychiatrist here for advice, and her voicemail was answered with a male voice (she usually is on there herself). Must have been her husband, and she has laryngitis! Now how am I supposed to get advice from someone who cannot talk?? Must be soemthing in the air, first my therapist, then psychiatrist at Residential Treatment Center (RTC), now psychiatrist at home!!!! I think I am going to in some polite but firm manner tell Residential Treatment Center (RTC) psychiatrist that communication between her and I needs to improve, and the seroquel needs to be stopped. If she cannot manage this? Is there someone on staff who can? Can I fire a psychiatrist at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) if there are other psychiatrists there? Will I become such a pain that they discharge him before he is ready to get rid of me? Should I call and talk to someone above her or talk to her first? I am going with talk with her first. Sorry I have been so self centered in my posting, I can barely keep up with my own life right now!
