She's been admitted

to the child unit at the local psych hospital for an evaluation. I don't know who this is harder on...her or us. It was VERY tough for me to walk away from her crying last night, but I knew it was where she needed to be. She needs help. Help that we are not able to give her at our home at this time. Hopefully she will be able to get the help she needs and they can find a med that will work for her. The nurse last night told me to expect 10-14 days. He said they will know more today after she has been evaluated by everyone.

That's all I know for now. I will be going back to see her tonight to take her some pajama's and her blanket/teddy bear. After that, we will visit on a limited schedule as they tell us what is best for her. Plus with my work schedule - Friday will be the next time that I can make it up there. It's 60 miles one way! That's pretty tough to make when I don't get off work until 6pm.

I am just sick for you- I am sure that was so hard! but you are right- it is the best for now- I am praying they figure out her meds fast and get her stable again- hang in there!!! :)

I am relieved that they took her -- recognized her needs and had a bed! It can be so tough.

I know it is hard now too. Do take care of yourself.

I know you are questioning, but you're doing the right thing.

I'm sorry you are going through this. I hope that you guys get the services you need on an ongoing basis.

I feel for you, I've been there. Be careful you don't take very special things there, they don't always make it back out. Hopefully they are working on helping her more than just giving her meds, been there too. You are doing what's right. She needs more intensive treatment right now. Good luck!!!

Yondalla sent me over and I'll be back.

I've been (to a lesser degree) where you are now.

Wishing all of you the best.
