all the lies

4062bfa0a115ca5452472219bd9e04d9According to David, every one is lying.  The nurse staff who documented everything that came out of his mouth to the hospital social worker who made the complaint to CPS to the CPS worker who “asked if I wanted to live with an aunt.”

David claims that he never told them anything about me restraining him on the pavement.  He doesn’t know where that came from.

He also claims that it wasn’t his idea to stay with his aunt.

The sad reality?  Even the nursing staff knows and understands that he tells lies.  How come the hospital social worker and the CPS worker can’t see the same?

We have three social workers directly as members of David’s team, plus a psychiatrist, a psychologist and his education team.  One would think that the people should listen to the person who knows David the best from outside the family.  Our Care Coordinator has been awesome.  I keep apologizing for calling her so much, but she says that she is here to help especially in crisis situations, which this certainly qualifies as.

David doesn’t understand the consequences that come from lying to everyone.  He doesn’t understand the harm he is doing to himself, or the relationships of the people he wants desperately to trust him.

I don’t know what to do.  I don’t know what is going to happen next.  I don’t know what tomorrow will bring.

In the end, I explained to David that there are limited numbers of places that he can go to.  None of the options include staying with an aunt.

visited my son tonight

I went to see my son tonight. He wants to know when he can come home from the hospital.  Nothing about the other night.  When I asked him why he wants to come home, it was all about missing the trip to Bismarck with his mentor that he does once a week. Nothing about the… Continue Reading

Psych 24 hours later aka Insurance Dictates Length of Stay.

The on floor psychiatrist called me today.  Which is normal for them. She said “David is so full of information, I never know what to believe. so I thought I would call and confirm a few things.” The biggest thing is that David claims to have broken out a bunch of windows on a couple… Continue Reading
