Racer .. I sure do appreciate your response. The risperdal is that low because it makes him sleep all of the time if he is on it a higher dose.

I understand that I cannot control his choices. What I can't understand is why I am not able to find help for him!! Whey can't we find some way to get him into a residential program .. whereby they can work with him intensly? We .. as his parents, have been a total failure. Obviously we are not able to help him .. and he needs help!!

I just called a local mental health hospital .. and of course, they said that he does not fit any criteria to be admitted. Our local mental health agency has no money .. so they will not refer him to the residential program that would (probably) help him in the next county. (Yeah .. also, in the wrong county.)

Sheriff dept. called again this morning. (So my son says.) Because of his OCD, he is having a very hard time NOT calling them back.

I am trying to figure out what we should do at this point. His psychiatrist can't seem him until next week ..(He is out of town.) Son hasn't told his dad yet .. THAT is a whole 'nother issue. His dad will kick him out .. and he can't be kicked out, 'cause he is on probation and he is NOT supposed to move his residence.

Probation .. the other issue .. he is NOT supposed to have any contact with the law in any way, shape or form. Well, he will be "tried" again and then will have to go to court for violating probation.

As I said .. I just can't believe that we are having to deal with this. Will our nightmare EVER end?

(I'm sorry, I am feeling so hopeless right now. I am just ranting .. certainly not directing this at anyone. )
