I have received by award letter after one attempt and no professional assistance. My suggestions are answer all questions honestly and completely, and complete all parts of the application.  Do not assume the person(s) reviewing your application understand what you mean by fatigue or any other symptoms you may have. Explain in as much detail as possible without being wordy.  Make sure your doctor is aware you are applying.   See More

"Apparently the number of kids affected is up to 75, in 24 states.  None of the kids has completely recovered from the paralysis. There seems to be a vague association with a respiratory illness in the preceding two weeks or so."

"Have you seen the maps of where this children have been placed throughout the States? This could be a real serious problem more so than keeping them in one location. BUT CDC has it all under control! :-(("
