Well, the psychiatrist made it official. His diagnosis is bipolar and ADHD. Before the doctors were leery of actually making it official (even though its what all of them were thinking.) Now I can use this with the court and the school. A week ago I asked the school to start testing and they've already started. It looks like we're headed back to court in the next few months. Ex is getting ugly and difficult child 1 is smack in the middle. He insisted on changing difficult child's insurance. Which means we change doctors again. It also means that we're going to be paying 20% of the medical costs plus co-pays. Ex is doing this to try to control difficult child's medical treatment. He doesn't think anything is wrong with difficult child and he thinks I'm making it all up to hurt difficult child because I'm mad at ex. He is also trying to lessen the child support payments and my last years court costs that the judge ordered him to pay. He is in for a surprize. The amount he is going to pay for difficult child's BiPolar (BP) far exceeds anything he'll take out of the child support. Plus, the judge isn't going to like it that ex hasn't paid me the court costs yet. Ex isn't the one who can decide if he can take medical expenses out of the court costs. Its going to get expensive for my family, too, but we'll manage somehow. Part of me is glad this is going to back fire on him. Part of me is scared of the court fight that I can see coming, but have no way of stopping it from happening. Last years court fight was about transportation (he was refusing to bring difficult child back) and medication (he was refusing to give difficult child his medications.) At least we get the therapist and psychiatrist back were working with him before he went on Medicaid. They are good doctors. This might be an o.k./good thing.
