So a few weeks ago I wrote about our struggle to get medication management for David’s psych medications. Today we did intake at Sanford Behavioral Health Bismarck. Medication success! and Medication disappointment.

Including external stressors such as how the person slept the night before, whether or not they have to use the bathroom, nervous tension and many other things. The Mean IQ is around 100. In order to be able to vote in the United States of America, you need an IQ of? Let’s get back to that. President Trump consistently refers to people he doesn’t like as having a “Low IQ”.
