So excited. I finally figured out how to apply for respite care. Pdoc and tdoc has wanted me to do this for a long time, only it has taken me many failed times with the DHS and numerous failed phone calls. Hurray! Relief in sight.
It might take a while but I know it will be there down the road.
This is a huge feat for me. It has just made the week so much better. Now, if only the insurance company will release coverage for my sons therapy. Then all will be better. He is so out of control- destroying our home, scarying his brother, hitting, kicking, etc. again in spurts. It is just when he gets sent to his room, or in the am when he doesn't get his meds as soon as he gets up- things escalate.
That is when it all happens; otherwise, he is just fine. If we could a) take away the timeouts or b) give him the meds asap when he arises then things would be dandy. But, he gets up sometimes before we do- like at 5:30! And when he does that, those are the mornings he is at his worst.
Oh well..... And that is my life. So therefore, which is why, I am applying for Respite Care.
