It's on. Sissy is full tilt. Blitzed. Dissociating. Her anti-psychotic isn't working.
ER visit after suicidal ideation. 12 hours on our butts, 5 pediatric psychs ahead of us, we got sent home at 5 am - no beds left. we were at the bottom of the que. tough luck.
Psychiatrist is going to try direct referral so we get the first available bed. Therapist wants her there until we get RTC placement, her CAFAS is finally high enough. Once she's in RTC, we'll press hard for long term. She'll get kicked out in 3-4 weeks and reescalate immediately, get sent back, etc. etc. until we finally get long term. Another 6 months of crisis hell ahead of us, at least.
Meanwhile, waiting on thyroid test as a rule out so we can start Lithium post haste.
I'll post more when I'm not exhausted. Because I am.
Oh yeah, she was HORRIBLE today. Just FYI.
