So before difficult child left wr had a carpool set up with a lady I worked with. Worked great, she only works 2 days during the week so I only had to do 2 days and she did not mind picking up 3. She had had her own difficult child and her son had a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as an infant, so she does great with difficult child. I called tonight I hopes we could resume the car pool......which we can and she was really excited about. Said she and her son both missed difficult child. I told her about his new diagnosis of Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) and she said she could see it. She had worked with autistic kids and said that he is not severe (he shows affection) and I agree but she agreed it fit. She knew about his BiPolar (BP) diagnosis and said she always thought there was something else. It feels really good to know she knows difficult child, knows his issues and where he had been for the last 2 months, and still likes him. There is a naive innocence about him that some people can really see, and it is heartwarming. And also? Found out today that the ssi is a sure thing, and we get more than I thought we would. And the random $60? When someone who is on medicaid is in a hospital they give then $30 a month for incidentals. So it was not a mistake.
