I could swear I’ve titled a post with this title before.


Just a brief update as to why I’ve been so quiet.   Tim is home.  Permanently.  For many reasons, we had him discharged from his RTC last week, without all the planning and setup that would normally go into transitioning from RTC back to home.

So now we are scrambling to get services, get SSI sent to the correct address, get an IEP meeting set up for school placement, get into a new psychiatrist   All while The Girl and The Bonus Kid adjust to having him around 24/7.  And we adjust, all while Tim honeymoons as he’s not in class or in therapy right now.

I have a feeling I’ll have a lot to blog about really soon.

    I am a mother. I am a mother to a son named Jacob. He is 16 and he has anti social behavorial personality disorder, yes that means he is a sociopath. He was released 2 months ago from residential treatment and I do understand your struggles. With a personality disorder even NAMI turned us away with the logic that since there is no approved treatment/cure they are unable to assist us. Each day I worry, each day I struggle, even on the "good" days I panic because I wonder when the shoe will drop. Some friends have disappeared, others have stood by me, but none of his previous friends even contact him. I understand, it is a language, it's a shift in reality, and trying to get help can make us feel as if we are loosing it. My heart goes out to you, stand tall, hold your head up even when you cry for you are not alone, and those of us with children who face illnesses that can not be seen on the outside are cheering you on. I am told by many how astonished they are that I openly talk about my sons illness, that I do not hide the word sociopath. I do it because I am like you, talking about to bring some awareness.
