kt had an in home therapist appointment last night. therapist attempted to work/use EMDR with kt ~ to try & settle her down a bit. Help with kt's anxieties. AND when we've used EMDR in the past, things always got worse before they got better. Yee Hah! Having said that, over the course of the past 2 weeks kt has shared some issues with therapist & PCA that are disturbing & have therapist believing that kt is dissociating on a regular basis. therapist also believes that there are a few boys at school "targeting" or being predatory toward kt. therapist thinks that kt is walking a very fragile line; some of the "antics" pulled by these boys are harmful & pushing kt further into dissociative states. Over the last couple of days we've seen more dissociation in kt ~ less kt. We haven't seen the "infant" kt in a very very long time. kt refused school this morning & I was advised for kt's mental health not to push school right now. SD has to answer for how they will protect kt from these boys ~ in other words, where is that one on one? SD told me yesterday that if kt cannot handle this school that the county will end up taking custody & sending kt to state hosptial. A little overkill, you think? (by the way, if anyone belongs in state hospital, it's wm, not kt. I love my son - I know how hard off he is). I appreciate the ear.
