Late Night Quick Update

Well, at least my experiences can be of some benefit. Today, I was contacted by the County Mental Health Regional Support director who would like me to talk with the people who write and create the Handbooks about the advice to call 911 and the outcome I didn't have. Not that it will resolve the situation we faced but, perhaps if the systems of support know about the run around and the pointing in the wrong direction maybe they can do something to address these issues.

I'm sure I am not the only one who has found this circle of confusion unbelievable but, I am well known for my Letting people know exactly how I feel about things! I am sure many--if not most parents don't have the energy or ability to beat a dead horse until someone gets the point like I do so well.

Hopefully, tomorrow I can add my 2-cents to the situation and perhaps see if there is any possible way this loop of nothingness might somehow be at least discovered and if lucky maybe something done about it? Of course, I did hear the phrase, "Maybe, it's changed due to recent budget cuts?"

In my experience that phrase is usually just another red-herring so we will see--won't we!

Busy day today--so I will try to follow up after some sleep!

    well, budget cuts or your fault for not sounding nutty out of control yourself... whatever...

    it just added fuel to my fire of anger...

    This was not your fault or not a change in policy because of George Bush.... (we get the same BS here as well)

    You have an emergency they are supposed to come.... and this was a medical emergency (if they'd just stop it with the big division over mental and other health problems)

    nope, their manual was just words they wrote to say there is no reason you should ever loose it because we are all so helpful and you, you nutty parent are just the problems...

    so, don't buy the bull...

    and unless you wanted her to head to juvie or the psy hosptial... not much would have come from it anyway...

    I bet if you check, they do have 11-12 year olds sitting in juvie right now ... and she can go there for doing the things she does to her brother...

    not that that is the best, most wonderful thing for her...

    sometimes I think you have to get a clear picture in your head where you want this to lead...

    not that we have had any great success here....
