So, yeah....hmmmmm psychiatrist cuts difficult child's medications cold turkey. Mmmmmkay. Then they start a new medication without ever asking me a single question about difficult child's history. They never spoke with his psychiatrist of 2 years. Yup! We won't meet with anybody for a treatment or transition or family therapy until Tues. Then the best part; drum roll please......... difficult child mentioned that they already told him he may go home Tues. or Wends. That's 6 or 7 days past his violent assault that could/would/should have landed him in jail and 4 or 5 days after popping a new medication in his system. Is it me or am I maybe missing something here? All joking aside, where do I even begin to tell them what incompetents they are and that I *ahem* most certainly will not be picking him up without somewhere for him to go. how do I even tear them a new one while knowing full well they will be utterly useless should he stay? Can I refuse to sign him out without them saying he is abandoned? How can I even question the doctor who clearly has an agenda when I am not even allowed a second of their time? QUACKS. Maybe they just are so darned good that they can get a violent, seriously mentally ill teen stabilized in less than a week? Is it like faith healing or shock therapy? I really have to know... What pills are they on and can difficult child get them too? I am too tired to be fiesty so would be ever appreciative if you guys could help suggest those *hard* questions, the kind that will stick in their craw like "what therapy model are you following" "what is your treatment plan and is it standard to not consult the parents" and doozies like "zyprexa gets to a therapeutic level within a couple days and my violent child is now stable" I need a list to go in well armed to shred them. I want to give them the Spanish inquisiton, read them the riot act and pretty much go in armed with proof that I am not the typical bobble head.
