The Bridge

Yesterday we had a “team” meeting with our son.  The day before we had our 1st family therapy session in 3 weeks because of his refusal to attend. In the session he spoke 28 words in an hour.  He did inform us he wrote a one and a half page essay to get back into the “gentlemens club” (a privilege club based on daily behavior).

In the team meeting we found out he told his therapist to “f off” and lied to his psychiatrist.  They informed him that his gentlemens club letter was rejected and that it proved he “could” work when he wanted to.  His behavior escalated that night and he had to be “medically restrained” (sedated).

This morning we received a call informing us that he would be on “full restriction” for the next week.  No activities, no tv, no reindeer games.

My minute to minute mantra now is “make the connection, cross the bridge, cause & effect.  Make the connection, cross the bridge, cause & effect.”
