Feeling Scared!

OK...It has been 1 week and 1 day since Mike was released from the hospital.  I filled his pill case today and there are about 5 medications that I will run out of in 4 days.  I am going to the Indian clinic tomorrow and beg them to write prescriptions.  I am trying to think of a backup plan if this fails.  Mike doesn't have a physician here in town so I don't know where I will go.  I thought about a minor emergency facility but that will be my last resort.  Mike has an appointment with his doctor at the clinic but not until Jan. 13th.  I can't wait that long for the prescriptions.

This is so hard.  Mike woke up a little while ago and told me he has a psychotic episode when he awakened he thought he was dying.  I told him he was probably startled and sometimes we get confused when that happens.  I really don't know.  He definitely has diliusional thinking.  He told me he wants to call the man who was his room mate at the mental hospital.  I had to tell him no.   I have to be careful about the relationships he forms because he can get too involved in other people's problems.  Next thing I'd know he'd be inviting someone to come and live with us!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight is the first night I've had this nervous anxiety.  I've got to get it under control!

I don't know how you can do this day after day. Stop and take a hot bath and try to relax.

Dani, you can't do this by yourself. I'm praying for some help to come your way.

Please call your brother's doctor's office -- ask for the nurse or ask them to talk to the doctor about the meds problem. Ask if they can prescribe enough for him to last to the 13th. If the doctor won't prescribe the meds, see if he can be worked in for an appt sooner.

Judy has a good idea. Also, ask the doctor for some samples to tide you over. I have never been refused when I ask.
God bless you child. It is time you catch a break.
