confusedmama Posted June 1, 2010 Report Share Posted June 1, 2010 Ok, there is a lot to say and I'm hoping someone can give me advice. My daughter Raiven is 8 years old. I knew she was different as soon as she could talk and walk. She was always hyper and impulsive. When she was three I noticed her talking 2 herself, hitting herself in the head etc. She first saw her psychiatrist when. She was 4. She was diagnosed with severe ADHD and placed on ritilin. Over the course of the year she complained about voices and her dr attributed it 2 the ritilin. She tried adderal and had negative effects. Eventually she was placed on extended release ritilin and was up 2 50 mg a day, with clonidine at bedtime. She started showing signs of severe depression, aggression and anger and started hearing the voices and seeing "puffballs" again about 7 months ago. She has since been hospitalized 3 times and has been diagnosed with psychosis nos, bipolar nos, adhd, and odd. She is currently on 36 mg of concerta, 80 mg of geodon and .2 mg of clonidine. The geodon has managed 2 keep the voices and puffballs at bay 4 now. My true question is this: should I apply 4 ssi 4 her, and what are the chances she will be approved? I have missed so much work dealing with this I've almost lost my job. She has therapy every week and when she has bad days I'm all she wants. Plz plz help me.
