Things are moving on with my daughter - after lots of, 'I hate it here, come and get me phone calls', she seems to have settled to the routines and is beginning to be able to talk to the staff. She has been given meds to stabilise her mood and is starting therapy this week. They seem to think that she has OCD and an anxiety disorder which has lead to the self harm. It is early days yet.
I hope that she is beginning to feel that she is getting the support she wanted and needs. I am still finding it so hard being outside the process, the worst thing is that when we visit having staff with us in the room. I know it's to keep us all safe but it makes it all seems so unreal.
I am taking everyone's advice and re-charging my batteries. Gardening today in the wonderfully sunny weather.
