Omers—I am sure you don’t want to do this, but if your son is committing actual crimes against you, calling the police and pressing charges would be one way to deal with it. It might also get him psychiatric help.

We are in a bind. Because of his mental health Dx the police will not take him as they cannot put him in jail. Our hospitals are all private and will not do even a 72hr hold with his disability. I have been escorted off grounds repeatedly by police for demanding care. The disability places won’t take him because of the assaults and they are already over capacity. We have been trying for 3 years! Cannot even get an hours worth of care for him. His behavioral therapist recently cut their sessions in half and they will be cut in half again in may when school lets out because my son appears to be getting worse... ahh... that was what behavioral treatment was for... I thought... in my state he either needs to commit a crime that leaves evidence and goes through the court process and proves intent OR you have to get to a gatekeeper to get to the state facilities. Most around here believe the state facility is closed but it is not... the state has gone underground with it. Even his psychiatrist does not know it is still open... even AFTER I brought in pictures I illegally took inside (a friend was one of the Chaplin’s there).

Well tomorrow is going to be an interesting day at work! I've been asked to be in customer-facing live chat allllll day - the longest I've been on it before has been 4 hours I think. I don't know yet if it's going to be only a normal 8 hour shift then I'll do my overtime working emails as usual, or if the whole 10 hours will be in live chat. I don't mind either way, it's only one day and I'm off both weekend days now woohoo since they cut the required overtime down to 5 hours per week with a max of 10 hours per week. (I'm doing the max cuz I am saving as much $$ as I can while the overtime lasts.)
h is working again this evening, so he probably won't get home til after I'm asleep... it works out pretty good that way actually cuz he's here in the mornings while I'm working so we can talk on my breaks & lunch and then I get quiet time after I get off work which is a good thing, cuz he's usually gone before I get off work. I really enjoy having these evenings to myself...

If I am not here he gets an immediate placement in residential where he cannot hurt anyone else.

Hey couchies. The little's birthday went over well and we are all exhausted. I have to drive home from my oldest's still, and wake up early for work tomorrow. Hopefully you're all having a good evening.

******trigger warning for talk of suicide******







I met with the pdoc today.. when he asked me if I had any SI or a plan I said yes(talked a little bit about my thoughts) and as always follow up with I have a safety plan with my therapist though. Which apparently I didn’t to say because the next words out of my doctors mouth was, oh you don’t want to really kill yourself you just like the idea of dying to get away from everything (something along those lines). Great way to
Feel completely invalidated and not listened to at all. I hate all professionals right now.

Holy **** healed. I am so sorry you had to deal with that. He had no place at all to say something like that. None. Hugs
