The CPS worker was here for two hours and all we did was gab. She noticed how Brandon is different now as he is bigger and better behaived. She is going to wrap the investigation up as soon as she can, but my case is the lowest priority. She told me not to worry. If they were worried you would think they would have done something by now.
In my pile of records that I had collected, I also found some things that were done a while back from his case manager and the school. I don't know which one poisoned which. I don't care, they are added to my list of people and agencies that I will seek out legal action. I plan on hiring a malpractice lawyer after I receive that little piece of paper that clear my name. We will see.
For now I am going to relax. I have respite this weekend so I am going to do nothing! I am going to start my plans on Monday as far as what I am going to do. I need to act very carefully.
Thanks for reading and I hope you never have to life this, but if you do, contact me.

I have a son that's thirteen and we have been going through our up's and down's w/his behavior in school and out of school. I knew something was wrong with my son since the age of 7 so I took him to doctor's after doctor's and they all told me he's mildly depressed and have severe ADD. Then they tell me 6yrs later he might have petit mal seizures because he hear things, see things, and be lost within himself. I was so happy they found something wrong with my child because I knew something was wrong. So he had the neurology exam and that came out normal so now I'm right back at the beginning again until he started a school ordered by the court because he was a threat they said to regular school. They have day treatment and talk with your child and study their behavior and ask why they act and think in sortin ways. Well, to get to the point I received a call from the special ed teacher because I want my son to be evaluated and they read over my son phychiatric evaluation and contacted his doctor and the neurologist and they went over the signs that have been ignored all these years.... The hearing things, seeing things, always thinking someone is out to get him, feeling of not being nothing and questioning himself on why he's alive. After 6yrs. of my son living with feelings of being nothing and not wanting anyone to think he's crazy so keeping most of the things he believe is not real inside to not be an outkast to anyone, has not just tormented him but me also. Now they want to tell me my son show's sign of early schizophrinia and I don't know how to take this but that was always in the back of my mind and I don't know if I should tell my child. I have a medical counsel coming up in April and I prefer my child to believe he's just ADD and that's why he will be taking meds. Is that wrong?

hi.. i'm not a parent of a child sufferring from schizophrenia. i am sufferring from schizophrenia(the doctor said so..) 16 years old this year. i used to love to hang out with my frens and joke with them. but i am no longer doing so. i have been on medication since last year, seroquel and flouxetine. i also had been admitted into imh(institute of mental health) this june.i knew that my mom and dad have been going through alot since i have this illness. they tried to be there for me.i'm lucky enough to have parents like them. but, its very unfortunate of them to have such a daughter like me. they have to go through all the talks and gossips from other people. even though they nvr once complained about these kind of things, but they are upset about it. my mom has accepted that i have schizophrenia but not my father. he has been denying about it and said that i'm acting this way is just part of being a teenager. i want to be okay and be what i used to be and let my parents to be happy, but the doctors said that i need a certain period of time to recover.
for my frens, its been very hard for them as well. none of my frens despised me after knowing that i have a mental illness and i sincerely thank them for that. they had always tried to talk to me into stop hurting myself. with the effect from medication and them talking to me, i have stopped hurting myself. but paranoia has nvr once left me. i always feel that they are talking about me behind my back, that they are just acting to be nice to me and one day, they are going to harm me. for countless of times, they have try to assure me that they nvr talk about me behind my back, but i couldnt bring myself to trust them.
everyone including my teachers and doctors have been encouraging me to return to school. i tried a couple of times, but always ended up returning home before sch ends. whenever i'm in school, i always feel very lonely and sad up to the point of tearing... i knew that i have brought of alot of sadness and troubles to my classmates, frens and teachers.
whenever i told someone that i have schizophrenia, he or she will give me that "whatever" face. everybody that i told, said that i dont look like someone with mental illness. i, myself couldnt believe it either.
i believe that i am rather more of being a sensitive person than a teenager with schizophrenia.
it's nvr easy for anyone with that illness. to me, schizophrenia is just as scary as cancer.
i really wish that your kid will be okay in the shortest time.
all the best! :D
