    Is it possible to get SSI with a diagnosis of conduct disorder and mood disorder not otherwise specified?

    I stay home right now because it's impossible to work, lack of jobs, lack of proper daycare facilities etc...

    My apologies also if this has been asked before. ;)

    I don't know but I would think it would be worth applying for. It has been recommended several times that we apply but haven't yet. Our difficult child has a multiple of diagnosis's one being Bipolar. I have heard that many people get turned down the first time so you often have to appeal.

    Are you asking for yourself?
    We didn't apply for difficult child until he was 21. We have enough documentation that it wasn't really a problem.
