N no no your wrong, she WOULD be a commie only if she wanted to medicate.

DS1 has ADHD and has to be medicated to function properly, he fails school without it. But, trying to diagnose any child under 2-3 is ridiculous. He wasn't diagnosed until he was 5. I knew there was an issue much earlier on, but I dealt with it and tried everything I could before having him formally diagnosed and medicated. Most small children run around and are hyper, that's just the age. I would never try to have a child that young medicated because they cannot tell you what is going on and how they feel like an older child can and you could easily be messing up your child. These meds aren't something to play with.

People thought I was serious. Ok, but clearly many parents do think that way. Medicated kids release parents from the burden of rambunctious or undisciplined kids. Effortless.



I was joking, come on. Not medicating, unpatriotic. Seriously, how is that not obvious....

My sister said she overheard some women in one of her classes talking about getting their kid an AD/HD diagnosis so they could get an SSI check for him. :?

ssi usually isn't for adhd kids or add unless its too the point where the child can not function in society which it what its for so i mean they can try but most likely won't get it and just put their child on medication and a diagnosis on their permanent record that if they tried to get a government job they would have to go through hoops to get it taken off if it wasn't necessary.

The dumb b***h my brother procreated with did this to my nephew. They gave it to her too. My nephew was in no way ADD or ADHD but she got him diagnosed (on the basis that he has an aunt and uncle that have it) and got him on SSI then dumped him off at his great grandmother's and didn't do anything with him while she collected the money. Then when her grandmother died she dumped him on a friend who got tired of him and I ended up with him and after a week I found out he was beating up my puppy so I ditched him back on his mother who sent him to live with an uncle. The worst part is he had a stable home with my brother and she took him away from him and got him barred from getting custody again because he was behind on child support (the child support she convinced a judge to give her while he was in my brother's custody)

Yep its a perfect example of our great country though and how easy it is to work the system. It was reported over 20 times that my nephew wasn't living with her meaning she should have lost his SSI over 20 times but she kept on getting it.

Its sad isn't it. My husband works 2 jobs and I get VA money to go to school (thank you dad for your service to our country) in total it comes out to about $3000 a month and there are months I go without food because we can't afford to make it. The cost of living is so high its ridiculous. It would be easier if DH and I lived together but we aren't in a spot in our marriage right now where that is possible but he doesn't pay rent and we live in such an expensive area that unless you make 6 figures your going to struggle (or if you bought your house 18 years ago like my parents did) Yet when I had no income and DH was working 1 minimum wage job we still got denied for assistance.
