My husband has been diagnosed with Paranoid Scizophrenia, Bipolar Mania I, & ADD. He is on numerous medicines and is sometimes "out of it" because of all the meds can he qualify for disability, and is there any other resources i can seek for him since I have Power of Attorney for him due to all of his mental problems. It is hard for me to hold a job since I have to take him to all his doctor appointments and to "babysit" him because of all the meds and the mood swings he has. We have been married for the past 2yrs and we've been together for 4, we have a 3 yr old son and he has a 8yr old daughter from his previous marriage. I have seen him deteriate mentally year after year from his chemical imbalance. I need to know what our options are to get him the monatary help he needs as well as myself so i can be a fulltime caregiver to him. What will happen as far as the children ? Also, what kind of evidence persay does the SSA need to approve a claim?
