    Kanga does not get that a psychiatric hospital stay is not a spa. She is mad at me because I had her transferred to a different psychiatric hospital. "But mom, all my friends are at the other psychiatric hospital. I liked it there."

    And, it is looking less and less like we can get a placement for her for in between her being discharged from the psychiatric hospital and getting funding for the Residential Treatment Center (RTC).

    So far they have said we have a budding personality disorder on our hands but they can't diagnose her with that because she isn't 18 yet. I think they are leaning toward schitzoaffective.

    OH MY GOD, she may need to come home. We are all very frightened.

    Hopefully, day 10 at psychiatric hospital will bring some progress.

    Fingers crossed she gets settled soon! It will be best for everyone once she is where she will be for a bit.

    I can understand the feeling of relief to have found 'friends' and be upset at that being taken away.

    Hang in there! I hope they can make it work so that she does not need to come home for any time in between.
