The psychiatrist called. My son admitted his hallucinations are telling him to kill me. This is the first time he has openly admitted that. He had slipped and told me but since denied it. I always worry I have over reacted and taken my child to the hospital for stitches they didn't need, a CAT scan that wasn't necessary, or a hospitalization that could have waited. He assured me this needed to happen. I was in real danger if this had escalated.
The doctor feels that Residential Treatment is necessary. They want to start the paperwork. I will have the option to change my mind at any time but since it takes so long, they want to start. I am not on board with RTC. I still feel we can adjust his meds here and keep trying. We do share the concern that he is on a lot of meds. He is hesitant to increase them but he agrees with his regular doctor and the therapist and will be increasing his anti psychotic. There are no easy answers. I hate all my choices. I love my son and want him home.
