    Unhappy Update had to go to ER

    I ended up having to take DD to the ER today because she was having such bad hallucinations. She wanted to strangle her self and me. She was begging me to make them stop and started crying and begged me to take her to the hospital. So she has been admitted to the child and adolescent psych floor after spending 3 hours in the ER. I am exhausted both physically and emotionally.
    It was so hard to realize that I just couldn't make it better. It is a short term bed used for diagnostics and medication adjustments. She even begged the Drs. in the ER to make her better. It was heart breaking. I visited with her a bit tonight and will be going to see her tomorrow again.
    I have no idea if I will be able to sleep tonight because even though I am so tired I can't slow down my mind. I am praying that they figure out what is going on, and can help make it stop for her. She always says afterwards I am sorry I didn't mean to hurt anyone. The nurse on the floor said it is better to do this at her age now then wait until she hits puberty which is what I have been trying to get the drs to listen to me about all along. Or she gets to strong and does real damage the next time she stabs me or trys to push me down stairs.
    I am still just spinning though.

    I'm so sorry for what you both are going through. I can't remember from other posts but has she been diagnosed with Schizophrenia? Barring the violence, this sounds a lot like what my SIL went through.

    In any case, good luck and I hope the doctors figure it out.

    Sending waves of aloha, huga and prayers to surround you both. How hard, scary and challenging for you both. It can be so difficult to keep up with med dosage as the children are growing and changing. Finding the right balance may take time- as you well know.

    As much rest and recoupperation as you can while she is in good hands. Take care my friend.
