Hey sweety. Sorry to here about all this and that they sent a doc you didn't know but he will ask you to go over the stuff anyway. Its their way of checking out what the people says is consistent. Frequently clients and parents / loved ones change their story for a number of reasons.Still sucks when your being honest though and it feels like they not listened. Do not worry about the blood tests. Thats just to keep an eye on the levels of the medication in his blood and to monitor his physical health. It helps to rule out physical causes of experiences and to help work out if something is a side effect, a physical issue or a hallucination. Again still sucks though if its you that has to have it. Itches can be a reaction to medication but also can be physical issues or tactile hallucinations. The main thing is to get the dose right to ease his distress. Even if they find this med does not do the trick there are many different meds they can try.
What about you others in the house. Have you had a carer's assessment to see what they can do for you. Support, respite, financial help, an advocate if you go to hearings or for when the doc comes. It is your Right to have it and their DUTY to provide the assessment and try to meet any needs it identifies. Ask for one. It wont negatively affect his treatment or how they deal with you.If you want more info on this call me.
I know you do not want to hear this but I gonna say it anyway. I know your focus is on your lad but you MUST protect yourself too. You and his dad are not going to be able to keep on helping him as well if you are exhausted and at your wits end all the time. You have to tell them honestly if you are struggling to cope.
If you need to know anything about the drugs, the illness or the law about this please call me. I cannot look at his notes, it is a disciplinery offence and a breach of his confidence but I know the staff who come to see you so I can get some level of update. They know I am a Fiend of the family and will tell me things as long as it is appropriate and not breaching his right to privacy.
Stay safe sweety. Me and Aunty Al are here if you need to talk.
