Ace got a card for his birthday that, when opened, sings a song that goes "boom boom ain't it great to be crazy?" He, of course, loves the card and plays with it most days. You would think the battery would die after 5 months, but noooo.
Boom boom, ain't it great to be crazy? Ace's bipolar, ADD mother sure thinks so.
Mental health treatment is not covered like physical health treatment. Unfortunately, since I went to that treatment program earlier this year, my mental health benefits have run out. At the very least, to maintain my sanity, I have to see my counselor every two weeks and my psychiatrist once a month. Each of those appointments cost $125 a pop. So for the last 3 months of this year, I will be paying $375 a month to keep from going crazy.
We had planned on getting a new big screen TV this year. Thankfully, all the money for a TV is already in the bank; we've been saving it all year. Unfortunately for all of YOU, that money WAS set aside for Christmas. Each of you will be getting 1 M&M for Christmas. So what's your favorite color?
(Thankfully, part of the stimulus package earlier this year included legislation that will force insurance companies to cover mental health as they would physical health. That begins next year.)
