Our morning with Jason started at 3:30 this morning. He was up in his room playing. We had to talk him into going back to sleep.
“Jason, go back to bed.”
He said but I’m awake.
“It’s still night time, Jason.” we told him.
“But I’m awake”
“Now go to bed…”
I finally fell back to sleep about 4:30 and then my cat decided to sit on my chest. I was awake again. I knew that I had a 9:00 a.m. phone call meeting with Social Security to try to get social security benefits for Jason because of his disabilities. I needed my wits about me. But there I sat with barely any sleep and lots of documentation to go through with her. She called fifteen minutes late (did I ever tell you all how people being late drives me nuts? Well no sleep doesn’t help that feeling).
She asked me everything about our family. Our finances…where we banked..how much money we had.. how much did my husband make.. will he make more this year (I doubt it since he hasn’t had a raise in over five years)… where is our health insurance… how much do we pay in medical bills after insurance… do we have life insurance… have I been convicted of a felony (since if he gets any money it will come in my name)… how many people live in the house… then onto can he do this… can he do that.. what doctors does he see.. what is his prognosis.. he has OCD, ADHD, ODD, ICD, RAD and Aspergers… who are his doctors… has he been in the hospital… what meds does he take.. and on and on.
Three hours later I wondered if she had left me any blood. I was so tired. Why did she need all that information? Can’t they just know that he has issues. Then she says, I will be sending you a document with what else I need you to do. I said can I just bring it in.. Yes but you may have to wait hours on hours. They need the Final Decree of Adoption as well as me to sign all the paperwork for them to contact his schools, hospitals and doctors. I’m going tomorrow..there goes another day. Let’s pray that Jason doesn’t act up tomorrow so I have to go get him too.
Now I’m dead tired but the house needs cleaned. I have too much time to try to catch up on that sleep that I missed last night.
