....you KNOW difficult child is going to need a payee with SSI but he doesn't "need" one? We got a letter stating that it looks like difficult child will be getting SSI (YAY!!!) and we've mentioned to him that he should think about having someone act as his payee because of his difficulty hanging onto his money. Nope. He doesn't need one or want one. This is someone who almost literally gets twitchy with the need to spend his money as soon as he gets it in his grubby little hands. I know once he gets his own place and starts getting checks, the money will be gone in a week and so will his food. Even without him in our house and our expenses going down dramatically....until I get a job, we won't be able to afford to help him out much. I'll buy what food I can for him if he really is out but he's stubborn. I won't do this forever. I'm sure some of you have come up against this. How did you handle it?
