SS15 being admitted to a mental facility. I'm freaking out!

The sk's are at BMs this week. Yesterday SS's gf broke up w/him. He snuk out of BMs house last night to walk to gf's and leave a note on her porch. This morning BM caught him taking knives to school. He told her he was going to hurt himself and hurt the kids who have been bullying him. (I posted that about 5 weeks ago) she tried to talk sense into him but he wouldn't listen so she called the police. They came and took him to a mental facility and DH is meeting them up there to see what's going on and what they want to do.

I'm at work right now trying to stay calm and get it together but I'm shaking and that's easier said than done!

Feeling a little determined today. This is a good thing. I have some big things coming and can't wait for them to get here.

Sounds like that's probably the best thing for him right now.

Breathe deep and try to stay calm. I know it's stressful but the good thing is bm handled it appropriately and your ss did not hurt himself or anyone else.  This could have been much, much worse than what it is.

He's going to get help and is in a safe place. That's a good place to start.

I agree, I'm just nervous b/c I have no idea what happens next.

Yes, I'm so thankful she caught him trying to take the knives to school. I hate to think about what could of happened.

Of course you are.  Anyone would be nervous (and scared and pissed).  The doctors will help you all and work with you on the next steps.  Hang in there--you can get through this.
