After the heartbreak of placing him outside the home, now we're having to fight an uphill battle for the medicine that may actually help him.

We hadn’t been able to give Alex hash (we can’t do it on the premises of the facility, so it’s a tricky problem when he’s too angry to take anywhere), and his mood was improving. We’re not the kind of … Continue reading
