Thanks, Sue and Tsohl!! This girl is from another state and from what I know she is on a sample pack of the med (my daughter showed me it when we went to visit on Parent's weekend and her roommate was away). It looked to me that perhaps she is being supplied sample packs by her therapist or something. I am sure that she is half compliant with taking her meds. Otherwise she wouldn't be having the problems she is having.
Kait brought her roommate and 2 other suitemates home and they are all out for the evening....I am hoping that the roommate with BP will not further decline while here. I told her before she went out that if things got worse to call me and we would figure something out together since I was familiar with BP. And without lecturing too much I told the roommate that it wasn't good to stop the meds suddenly, that many of them had to be slowly started and that to suddenly stop them could have bad consequences such as seizures or sudden depression. She took it well or at least she seemed to. So they are out and if I see anything showing that she is not doing well I will have her call her mom so I can speak with her.
Date night....we have had a few when we can squeeze them in...we are learning to seize the moment. WE had an impromtu lunch the other day which was just what we needed.
Well....I hope that I can handle all of this.....it's alot more difficult when it is somebody elses child. And it gives me a glimpse of what my fears may be when Erin goes away to college and my doing what I would hope that another mother would do if in my 2 shoes.
