    Hi guys. It has been a long time! Christopher is now 12 and diagnosis'd with Bi-polar amoung other things. He has been hospitalized twice since December and is now taking Lithium, Lexapro, Ritalin LA and Depakote. He has medical assistance through the Katie Beckett program but have been denied SSI/SSDI several times. The reason sited is "does not have marked impairment on daily living" or something like that. Of course we all know that is nuts! Anyway, I just don't get how the Fed. Govt. can deem him permanantly disabled one minute and say he is not the next. If we were to recieve SSI, the medical that comes with it is the same we get now!

    So what I am looking for is some words of wisdom, or a link from past posts to help me make this thing happen!

    Miss you all. Chris
