This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

Hospitalization #8

Kitty was admitted to her eighth psych hospitalization Wednesday evening.

When I picked her up from school, she was an emotional mess. She started screaming at Bear when he commented on the fact that she was drinking a soda (she's allergic to citric acid). She took off her seat belt and refused to put it back on. She started screaming at me, when I tried to correct her. I dropped Bear and Bob off at Grandma's and Hubby and I took Kitty to the phosp (I took Hubby because I didn't trust her to cooperate and not get violent).

Should be interesting to see if she can still keep her act together.

Still waiting to see if we can get her into residential treatment. I hate bureaucracy.

Oh my good grief Mary, when are the powers that be going to see that she needs a long term solution. This is just so freakin' unfair! So sorry y'all are all going through this. Even one hospitalization is emotionally grueling but eight! I am so sorry.
