> Hi Kath.

> How unfair.
~~~~~~~Yup! bigtime!

> I am sure that it took a lot of VERY hard work for your son to deal with such a loss, especially when he was treated so inhumanely in the end. He does not deserve to be exposed to such pain and confusion all over again.

~~~~Yes. Yesterday he said at one point, "Mom I don't even know how I'm feeling!"

> I guess you think this event will sabotage your son's mental health. It very well might. Perhaps the best thing you can do is to assure him that you are there for him to help him deal with this crisis, and that this crisis is very real. People who are perfectly healthy would be traumatized and damaged by the behavior of this woman.

~~~~~~~I was mostly afraid he'd deal with it by doing hard drugs! I told him this & he said, "Oh now - it's not like that" He's been doing pretty well lately. Very well really. He's stopped his risperidol (antipsychotic) so I made a big deal about how it's very important for him to be aware that doing K & ecstasy put him at bigger risk for relapse since he's not on meds. Yes, I was also afraid it would have a really bad impact on his mental health, but hearing him today, I realize that I think he's going to be okay. I'm so glad this music thing that I told Bobby about has happend. I also told him that I am VERY upset & have no IDEA how he must feel. That's when he said he didn't even know how he feels.~ ~

If it would be helpful and appopriate, you might want to mention to your son that an entire Internet community of people are on his side and wishes him the best.

~ ~ ~ Ya know what - that's a great idea! & I'll also mention the part about how perfectly helthy people would be traumatized by this, etc.
