Well someone came over the help me apply for SSI today. We did the paper work in 4 hours. She said she has never had anyone do it that fast before. Yeah for record keeping. I was exhausted by the end of it. I had all the old doctors names, address, and phone numbers. I was not prepared for having to know the dates difficult child 1 started and stopped going to each one. I was frantically searching through old behavior books and flipping through therapist notes. Not all of the dates are exact. In fact a lot of them are guessed at. They should be within a few months of the correct date though. She said that was normal. We did all that work then got to the end of the form (on-line) where it said what we filled out wasn't the formal application. WHAT??? I need to call the SSA office and set up an appointment. When I do I'll ask them where is the formal application I'm supposed to fill out.
