This is the song that never ends

“Little Big Man” is back at Willowbrook psychiatric hospital.  The last time he was there they changed two of his meds.  Normally we don’t let just anybody change his meds, but at this point we were desperate, so we gave consent.  Now he is back again 3 days after they discharged him and they want to change his meds again.  We refused to consent as they wanted to put him on an ADHD med that is essentially amphetamime and when we have tried this in the past it makes him even more aggressive.  Doctor “mom I don’t think you are thinking clearly He is very impulsive and needs this medication.”  Me “I understand you are trying to help but we have been doing this same circle with Damian for a year and a half now.  Amphetamines aggravate his bipolar and make him more aggressive.”  Doctor “but mom he needs this medicine and you seem very agitated right now, maybe you are not thinking clearly right now.”  Me-“I am agitated because you are not listening to me, please read his case file you will see that the meds you want to prescribe have been tried in 6 different formulations, it is noted by 5 different psychiatrists what the effects are for Damian.  Doctor-“okay I understand your concern but I would still like to try the medication change.”  Me…all I could think of was this song we used to sing when we were kids.  It continued to play on a loop in my head while the doctor kept talking. In the end I received another call from another doctor to inform me that they can legally change his medications without my consent and would be doing so tomorrow.

This is the song that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it
Not knowing what it was
But people kept singing it just because…This is the song that never ends, Yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it Not knowing what it was
