    I'm with DDD. Yes, lots of extra costs raising a mentally ill child. AND it seems to continue into adulthood, although we have done our very best to limit that.
    I saw that there is going to be a special regarding the killings in Conn. and the believed perpetrator. Some folks on-line were posting after the article that our country should have more options for parents whose children have mental illness or other serious special needs.

    Buddy... I can feel empathy for whoever is on that story line... you can too.
    I'm just "storied out" lately.

    Well, I'm glad that more of these are being published. The more people who are aware of it, the more people can come up with-ideas.
    That's looking on the bright side ...

    I thought that too. A credible news source doing a big story with no added drama like a mass shooting etc. The lives of those going through this are drama enough.
