Hello. I am the father of the 14 year old boy. Today is just another in the string of crisis situations we encounter. He should have never been released from the hospital. It was somewhat obvious they had "given up". It also makes me so angry I am ready to sue them! There have been many instances of malpractice involved here.

In any case he refuses to see any therapists but does talk to me when he is not in crisis mode. He is about 50% reasonable and the other 50% very angry and non responsive.

He has been on 30mg daily of Lexapro for about 8 weeks, but I have no idea if it is helping him. His suicidal ideations are still very high on some days. At the moment we have no idea if he has a plan as he will not talk to anyone about it.

The only hospital in the state is full and so that is not an option. The truth is we don't have many options than to just gut it out at home and help him stay alive each day. It is a bit nerve racking!

We are both trying to be as supportive as we can and praying he decides to want to get well. But anorexia is a very problematic disease.

Any other tidbits of wisdom will be helpful.
