@lisalucier Thank you for asking. It's been challenging. She is better than she was two weeks ago and it was decided that they were withdrawing her from the Effexor too fast. So they upped it again and I will see what happens when she is more stabilized. We had an emergency situation here with her and I did not like the way it was handled at all. I'm very proactive by nature and was told by my husband and son to let the experts do what they do. After several months of that, they wanted the bull back. 🙂 Yet I walk a very delicate line as she is an adult and needs to be empowered and make her own decisions. That verses the life experiences I have as an older person. Was not impressed with the therapist at all. The doctor I liked but didn't necessarily agree with, which is fine. I felt he had her best interests at heart. They are both doing fellowships at this hospital, which I was unaware of. I don't think I will meet with the therapist again, because as nice as I tried to be, she was being ridiculous and I spoke my mind which my daughter didn't like. So I think I'll stay out of that arena if I can. But it's hard. I wish this site had more members of parents with children who have mental problems. Just in speaking to a woman briefly that I recognized from when my daughter was in the hospital, helped me greatly. She was just speaking on how hard its been on her dealing with her granddaughter's illness. You never want to cross the line but I have so many questions I want answered. I just keep praying. Maybe things will improve. Thank you again for asking.
