My son is 20 years old, and tonight he sits in an emergency room under suicide watch. The ER doctor and his regular doctor PEC'ed him. Its been 10 hours since we arrived at the hospital, and 6 hours since they made me leave him, alone and scared not knowing where they will be sending him. This process is awful. He is sitting there on a cot, staring at 4 concrete walls in a hospital gown with no clothes, no phone no nothing to call for me. I feel so utterly helpless.
What worries me the most is that this will make matters worse, not better.
