with stupid people. Honestly, the therapists and counselors and caseworkers and TSS's and Behavioral Specialists and Family Based and Intensive Family and theraputic this and theraputic that and argh. I'm just 100% fed up with it all. Today was Dylan's 10 day whatever it is to make his treatment plan. I dunno what they call it, exactly. They do it over the phone, which, that in itself, is odd to me. So, the therapist, caseworker and Dylan were there, at the Residential Treatment Facility (RTF), on speaker, and I was here, at work, on the phone with them. She asked me 100 questions, many questions circled around sexual stuff, is he a cutter, burner, etc, etc. All extreme stuff. Then asked me other things, how he got along with kids, etc etc. Then, she asked it. "Has he tried ADHD medications before?" Okay, I provided this idiot with a full psychiatric evaluation from our psychiatrist that states EVERY medication Dylan has ever taken (our MH/MR lady even said how impressed she was with the psychiatric evaluation, never saw one that detailed before). I've talked to psychiatrist here at the Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) about all the medications, at least in the whole 8 minutes I got to spend with him. Aside from the fact that he's Bipolar. That question, it me off. I answered "YES and the answer is NO, and I won't ever sign to try one, so move on". I have no patience left. She's mumbling to me about maybe I should give him time outs. What the ?>!?!@?! What? This ain't gonna work. I just see it. I have no patience or tolerance for one more single idiot in my life. None. I told her if there were to be any discussions regarding medications I expect them from the psychiatrist. Not some damn therapist. He had a cough last night when I went to see him. I casually say, "hey Dylan, why don't you ask staff for a Halls or something?". The guy, staff guy, says to me "that has to be approved through the physician who's only here once a week". HUH? It contains mentholyptus, it could be a problem with his medications. Ok, dumb dope, I'm a psychiatrist in hiding, it's not, give him the damn HALLS! Then, they've been allowing him to sleep with no diaper. Why, you ask? Because he is, again, for the 3rd time, on DDAVP. So, why waste money on diapers when he is taking the pills? LOL! He's waking up, middle of the night, every night, soaking wet! SOAKING. Know what happened last time this happened, when he went without diapers, around 4 years old? He got RINGWORM! I tell them, get a diaper on him. "That has to be approved through the psychiatrist, and he won't be in until Thursday" (this was Tuesday I called). I told that lady she better get a diaper on my son or I was pulling him out. I think they can help him with his behaviors, but I'm not some dimwit retard that is gonna stand by and take their garbage either. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Vent over. Thank you.
