Hi to all; It has been a very exhausting month. My son has remained at rehab. He is attending school and participating to his best capacity with the program. We have obtained a Power of Attorney for finance to sort out some minor outstanding financial issues with a small pay day loan and an over draft in his bank account. He continues to want to have contact with his girl friend and his girlfriend and her mother keep on pushing for contact. He has been allowed one phone call to her over Easter for 5 minutes monitored. I do hope this fizzles out over time. Now for the bigger issue at hand. His behaviour remains strange even for a recovering addict. His primary counsellor is a wise and dedicated person. She does believe he may have a mixed mental health disorder with addiction, and is making arrangements for a comprehensive assessment. The suspicion is Boarderline Personality Disorder. When you see the general defining points: characterized by unstable relationships with other people, unstable sense of self, and unstable emotions. There is frequent dangerous behavior and self-harm. People may also struggle with a feeling of emptiness and a fear of abandonment. Symptoms may be brought on by seemingly normal events. The behavior typically begins by early adulthood, and occurs across a variety of situations. Substance abuse, depression, and eating disorders are commonly associated with Borderline (BPD). It fits to a T. His fabrications and lies are very outlandish. His emotions are all over the place up and down on a daily basis. More than what would be considered normal at this time. Needless to say I was devastated with this news. I am trying to stay focused and positive. The plan is to have a comprehensive assessment by a proper team of experienced psychologists and psychiatry. IF he requires treatment at a mixed disorders clinic they will keep his bed at the residential rehab so he can return to it once he is stabilized. We have a meeting with his care team on Wednesday to discuss the care plan moving forward. When does this misery and sadness end.
