If that's a little risky, try something like this Senior Citizen 4G Fall Button this is an emergency button for senior citizens, you can stick this in the dinosaur plushie, and have him press the button in case of emergencies, that way, he can call for help discreetly.
EDIT: Just wanted to say that you are 100% NTA. I can see that the family court has failed you before, but you need to keep fighting for your son's sake. My heart goes out to you u/No-Map-4333
It’s usually good to get him to wear a medical bracelet sooner rather than later if he is wandering.
My husband has this one: medic alert bracelet
He will likely go to a memory care facility. Assisted living isn’t going to meet his needs, given the facts you’ve presented.
Terrifying. I'm sorry that he caused you to have such an scary experience.
As far as I can tell, you handled the situation as best as it could've been handled. However, in retrospect, is there anything that you think you could've done differently to avoid or end the experience early, once it became clear it was too aversive? A "safe word"? Maybe pre-arrange with a friend to come get you if you tap the "escape" button on your phone? Or a emergency alert necklace?
Something like this:
(Just an example. I have no connection to the company or product.)
No need to wait. The devices are cheap. I use this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WCQVV71/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Costs about the same as a typical copay, but you can check as often as you want. When you get the feelings you're describing you can check right then and there, and know for sure if you're BP is elevated from normal.
Cheapest one on amazon is $9

I have AFib, medication manages it and my cardiologist said it will not harm me as long as it's under control, it may become more of a worry after 60.
See a cardiologist and you'll be fine. I did go through testing and wore a holter monitor before diagnosis. I also bought https://www.amazon.com/KardiaMobile-Single-Lead-Personal-Monitor-FDA-Cleared/dp/B01A4W8AUK/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?adgrpid=56419504979&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhZHY8cKf-wIVmjizAB2fCAH7EAAYASAAEgKRd_D_BwE&hvadid=274797286041&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=9... to monitor and my docs think it's great.
I'm not sure what you're trying to monitor but this thing was recommended by my cardiologist and does a pretty good job. It's not continuous like the watch though.
I'd add, if you are buying a smart watch, get one that monitors for AFib, or get something like this (https://www.amazon.ca/AliveCor-1141-Kardia-Mobile/dp/B01A4W8AUK/) Afib is no fun either.
Problem is most of the information is bullshit. The drug itself isn't that bad. People take desoxyn for decades and continue being normal and healthy. ...It's the not eating and sleeping that gets you. If you're able to keep that in check then you're fine.
That said, all stims are vasoconstrictors and it sounds like you may have either a cardiovascular or diabetic problem to content with. You should absolutely take a break, say 3 weeks, and see a doc. At the very least grab a blood pressure monitor and start checking regularly. especially comparing peak high to base values.
High blood pressure is called a silent killer for the very reason it has no symptoms, yet long term high blood pressure increases your risk of a major cardiac event (heart attack, stroke, death etc).
Now this doesn't mean you have high blood pressure, but most certainly feeling fine doesnt mean everything is fine, again it's a silent killer.
I'd order a blood pressure cuff on Amazon like this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WCQVV71/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_TJ3MX4RTPC2NSWM1JZNH
See what kind of readings you are getting at home when completely relaxed. If you are regularly getting readings of 140+, medication is recommended to lower your risk of developing heart disease.
I have one similar to this product that I got from Amazon. It will fit any watch band so I put it on my Apple Watch. Works great and I never forget it. It is comfortable too!

Everyone go to their product and write negative reviews! We can fuck them up for threatening a fellow redditor
If you are suffering from afib, you could also get a Kardia device. They are really expensive for what they are and in this case, showing in the app that you have afib or any other heart issues won't be classed as a diagnosis, but will get you in the door at a cardiologist.
AFAIK it is considered a gray area/market. unlike testosterone, which is a schedule 3 controlled substance (same as ketamine, for reference), estradiol and other transfem-relevant medications are not illegal to possess without a prescription; it's the dispensing without confirming the buyer has a prescription that's illegal. I've heard stories of US customs seizing people's packages (you can find them here on reddit) and sending warnings in the mail, but never of any further action. basically, and especially if you just use a different name on the address, it's not worth anyone's time to try to nail you with something. in any case, to get anywhere they'd have to prove that you ordered it and that you didn't have a prescription at the time. but if someone at customs decides to fuck with you by seizing the package anyway there's not much you can do besides try again. personally, I've ordered bicalutamide and estradiol online from https://alldaychemist.com, and the box came clearly labeled "PERSONAL SUPPLY MEDICATION" with a slip of paper included accurately listing the contents. wasn't touched by customs.
as for any adverse effects due to these medications, I can only say to be be careful and do your own research. if you're worried about the QTc prolongation specifically, you might want to get one of these https://www.amazon.com/Alivecor%C2%AE-KardiaMobile-Wireless-Detection-Smartphones/dp/B01A4W8AUK/.

The general belief is that a young female is "too young" to have "real" heart problems.
I have a terminal heart condition that was diagnosed in my early teens. DM me for suggestions on how to talk to doctors without getting labeled as crazy or difficult.
Please buy this ecg machine. It's totally legit even though you wouldn't think that little do dah was a real ecg. I s. It also sends irregular ecgs to a doctor when you ask it to--so if her heart rate shoots up, capture the ecg, and you can send it to a doctor immediately, 24/7. heart problems.
Buy this ecg machine. It sticks to your phone or you can just keep it in your purse. It's totally legit even though you wouldn't think that little do dah was a real ecg.

I will write more later.
It was very random for me. Sometimes, I would have it once every few months. Sometimes, I would have it once a week. I had an ablation done through a catheter. It was very simple. During the procedure, they trigger episodes while you're under an XRay to identify where it's coming from and why. Then, based on that decide what to do. The reason I had the ablation, is that the medication did not work well for me. How we treat Tachycardia has changed recently. So if you haven't seen a cardiologist recently for the problem, I would recommend doing so. The treatment options in the last 20 years have changed. Buy a heart monitor like this one to capture the episode and share with your doctor: https://www.amazon.com/Alivecor%C2%AE-KardiaMobile-Wireless-Detection-Smartphones/dp/B01A4W8AUK/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2S0CJYEYBANLF&dchild=1&keywords=kardia+mobile+heart+monitor&qid=1595126797&sprefix=kardia%2Caps%2C224&sr=8-3 Some smartwatches can also capture EKGs that doctors are comfortable using. Check if your smartwatch is one of them. Your doctor may recommend wearing a heart monitor for a few weeks to properly capture your rhythm.
Your primary care doctor will be able to order preliminary testing while you wait for an appointment from a cardiologist. Since I knew I was getting the procedure, I purposely bought an insurance plan for the year that would fully cover it. I will be changing my plan next year.
I just got mine from RoadID on Amazon and this is what I put on it! I chose the one with the most line space, which is this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BZA22B4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
My two biggest concerns, and reasons why I have it, are because I have had anaphylaxis due to MCAS and I have fainted unexpectedly due to POTS. The fact that I have EDS isn't really the most important in an emergency situation, but with my emergency meds (that are always on me/in backpack) I have detailed info about all my conditions and my full ID/legal info.
Line 1 : NAME: Ian N-----, ICE: XXX-XXX-XXXX Line 2 : ALERT: ANAPHYLAXIS, FAINTING RISK Line 3 : Mast Cell Disease, Allergies, Asthma Line 4 : EDS-III, Postural Ortho. Tachycardia Line 5 : *EMERGENCY MEDS AND EPIPEN ON PERSON
The technology exists, it's not expensive either. We're talking sub-100$
and this shit is trusted by cardiologists.
I got this!
I love it. It fits perfectly, and also comes with extra links just in case.
We have this bracelet for our three year-old and I love it. It's bright, a material comfortable enough for him to wear, and the pictures are excellent for both non-English speakers and children.
I am guessing we are talking past each other. The point of the PDSA is that patients have the right to refuse any and all treatment including resuscitation. You're right in that it did specify that state laws still apply. I missed that.
>The reason most states don't just hand out dnrs is because of idiots that ingest something that makes it look like a natural case.
The point remains, even by the statutes of Wisconsin which you posted, you do not have to be terminal to get a DNR, you just have to convince your doctor (b) or (c) apply. And as you can see from what I posted, a number of states have no requirements other than competency. The fact is that the bracelet can be ordered from Amazon.
Also, in the states with which I am familiar this is not a process that directly involves the state. In these states, the patient asks the physician for a DNR, the physician signs a form. That's it. In some states, the patient has to sign a consent as well.
I can't speak for Wisconsin, but where I have worked, states don't hand out DNR's. Doctors do, at the patient's request.
