should he stay or should he go?
So took SS 13 to the drs, put him on concerta and risparedol (sp?), the only difference we seen is that he is more tired.
Took him to a counceling center, they got him an appt with psychologist.
Talked to both without SS around (dont want him to hear all the negative things), let them in on a few things SS lied about when he was talking to them..although he was more honest with counceling center... Dr. said she does not feel like she can do any more with him, and called around and got him an appt with psychiatrist in a wk, she said 2 months was even to long to wait, she said he was going to hurt someone.. counceling center said that we should get locks for the inside of doors so the other kids can lock their doors at night so he cant get to them (mainly the girls), and that if there are any guns in the house to remove them IMMEDIATLY!
And that was just when I told them what he lied about.. wonder what they would say if I told them the rest, the more important (what I feel is more important) stuff..
He isnt out of control like you would think.. at any given point he will just go into a catotonic state, he moves slow, his eyes stare right thru you, he wont talk, he wont eat..
I know I should want to help him, but when someone uses the term "pychopathic tendencies" I want to run..
I dont think we should help him at the cost of the other kids, jmo.. we are putting them in harms way... we shouldnt live like prisoners in our homes.
He goes to his moms sporatically, his dad works crazy hours.. I am the one stuck with him all the time...and I dont want to be..he creeps me out.. when things get bad with him I will sleep during the day and stay up at night because I am afraid he is going to kill us in our sleep.. his dad thinks the same thing too.. we have thought like this for a few months now.
We checked into group homes, but they no longer exist in our county (budget cuts)
I am at a loss!! and I am sick of having panic attacks when he is about to come home.. it may be mean.. but the kid needs to go!
I am sooooo glad ST is back!!
