Hi, everyone- I am close to distraught right now. difficult children therapist called and said they have been seeing many of the behaviors we have described since last night. difficult child has threatened a staff member with a needle, threatened to wake all the kids on the unit, kicked a staff member, and hit his therapist. He had to be put in restraints and given some Thorazine to calm him down because he was banging his head on a window. This is almost more than I can take. His psychiatric tests came back and the therapist said two things stand out quite clearly: He has a thought disorder which causes him to distort reality-she called this Psychosis not otherwise specified, and a Mood Disorder not otherwise specified, which causes his mood to be unstable. She said it can be treated but will require long-term, intensive therapy. What does that mean? and what does this mean for my little boy's future? I guess I'll find out more tomorrow when we meet with his therapist. Right now, he's sleeping from the Thorazine, I guess- they are also taking him onff the Lamictal and putting him on Risperdal. We did try that in the Fall but his psychiatrist at the time took him off it due to anxiety but we're giving it another try. Right now, my mother's heart is hurting really bad and I just don't understand why this is happening.
