So we had our first team meeting today, and in all honesty? It is described as being a support for the family in the literature??? Yah right. I don't think so. They work 8-5 monday thru Friday. Great, so do I. So I have to take more time off for more appts. Oh yay. Respite??? Nope, we don't get it, we have the wrong type of medicaid. Seems like they will take difficult child out to do fun stuff and work on stuff at the same time??? Great, he is always good with other people, will not do a dang thing. So if I want it to work I have to go with him. Nice, more time off work. All difficult child does is go off about how his sister hits him, yell at him, swears at him and his aunt yells and swears at him. Great, so how long untill cps is knocking at my door? You know, if he was my only kid and if I did not work monday through friday like them? maybe I would see the point, but I really do not have much hope for it. They will come in and work on stuff like chores?? Once again, I will have to take time off work to be here. I am almost frustrated to the point of tears. I am the only parent, I have to work. I can only take so much time off work, and I have taken off so much work for my mom's surgery, and am still taking it off now as unpaid. Yay. I really don't see how this helps ME. It might help difficult child, but in no way shape or form will it help me.
