    custody of dc bc I had a job loss and things are financially difficult for me now. I've had dc since split full time bc of ex's job travel and the sad relationship they have bc dc is uncomfortable around him, but ex showers him with toys and restaurants to cover it up. I don't want to get into the details of insults and threats he threw at me, but he said as far as pick up today "he is going to fucking slept over or else you are more screwed its not what he says if he doenst want to spend the night." Ex has never been so pressed on dc staying over only bc he has a new girlfreind and she will move in in 2 months.

    communicate and is so frustrated that he gets violent. She has refused all therapy since his first early intervention evaluation at 18 months (he is now 4 1/2). Someone called CPS on her last month because he was so bruised he looked like he was beaten and then missed school for a week (probably one of his teachers.) She blamed my elderly parents, who she lives with, along with her bipolar husband (who is on disability and hasn't worked in ten years) and moved out. My parents have struggled to help her and her husband and to help raise her son, only to be met with constant arguments and insults. I have tried to help my sister get her son help, but she refuses to even acknowledge that he is autistic. Now they have moved in with her senile mother-in-law who is also mentally ill and lives in Section 8 housing. My 6 yo ds is devastated because he is attached to his cousin and hasn't seen him in almost a month. CPS has interviewed us all and she is clearly in danger. So

      explain to the clients when you get there what's going on with you and hopefully that'll speed things up. while you're out pick up some anti nauseant suppositories at a pharmacy (yes they exist - ask the pharmacist). give 13yo a glass of water and tell her to take small sips every 15 mins or so. get her a bucket, set her up as comfortably as you can, and go.
