it was like close to a death experience
my Son returned home last Thursday and was served the court order Friday to appear in court this morning
he took it so hard and cried a lot and he was begging me to cancel it. I tried to explain to him that I am doing it for his own good but he did not want to understand. he just thought that I wanted to force him into Mental hospital and control him.
My heart was broke for him and almost called my lawyer to cancel the Guardianship.
but I said to myself, this my chance for me to help him to get SSD benefits and be able to talk to medical team on his behalf when his become really symptomatic.
when he saw that I am not changing my mind, he tried to become violent toward me and wanted to punch me on my face but I hold his hand then called my lawyer who called the police.
Police assisted me in taking to Hospital. But the Hospital ER pdoc did not find him symptomatic. he was able to hide his symptoms. I talk to pdoc and other doctors who checked him and explained the history and also showed them the guardianship order.
ER/pdoc gave him a 500mg depakote with an Ivy and 100mg Chlorpromazine(Thorazine).
I request that he get admitted to Phyciatric unit for few days since he has to appear in court Monday.
but pdoc said that my son accepted to take meds daily and to follow up with his primary psychiatric doctor and no need to keep him overnight. he explained to my son that he must take the meds, otherwise it will be admitting next week.
he kept arguing with me in the Hospital Room until my head became like balloon and requesting to cancel the Guardianship and not to force him on meds. At the end of the night, he was exhausted and slept for few hours. Then, he was discharged Saturday early morning.
Saturday, everytime I give him his pill morning, afternoon and evening, he would argue with me for like few minutes.
then he would propose to only take the meds for 21 days then stop, then he would day, what about taking the meds for 14 days and then take the greyhound to CA to see if my headache would go away.
I just had miserable time with him Saturday. I felt that I am killing his spirit.
Sunday, he ate just little in the morning ( no appetit) and took his pill with lots of efforts then he requested to be driven to a place close to public library and did not want me to be with him. He ask me to leave him for couple hours and pick him up about 5pm.
I did not think that he would try to escape since he did not take his Backpack and did not even take his phone charger.
at 4:40PM, called him and he cell phone was shut off.
Called my brother in California and my brother said that he may had took off with greyhound but he was not sure!
Called the police to report him as missing person then my brother called me and confirmed that he took the greyhound to CA because my son called him.
Well, this is the 3rd time he leaves to California in the past 7 weeks. I know he had $200 in his pocket.
I had asked him to hand it to me and I promise to save it for him but he refused and he was sleeping with his wallet next to him so I would not take his money.
Last night/Sunday, my son called me and started to negotiate a time frame to take the meds and put conditions for returning home.
He said he would returns home and take the meds for only 3 weeks if I promise that I would not hospitalize him.
I made it clear to him that he must comply with the meds for long time.
So, As you see going through the cycle all over again..
this morning, I was granted the Guardianship since my john did not show up!
Just need patience and prayers..
