I just feel absolutely broken; I think I found this place too late. There simply is no peace in my house. My daughter seems to be actively trying to have herself removed from my care by CPS. Lying to her teacher, counselor, nurse, and/or school psychologist. They seem to think she craps gold nuggets and pees excellence. No, she just has them wrapped around her finger, and they believe every word she says. My household is now held hostage to the whims of a 10 year old with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), trichotillomania, psychosis, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), depression, and severe insomnia (which feeds the psychosis). She has absolutely no motivation to follow household rules since all she had to do is cry abuse to her school, and they call me in to rake me over the coals. Most recently, she told them I made her take twice her dose of medicine because she was sleeping in class when the truth was simply that she refused to go to bed the night before. I would never, but because she said it, it must be true. I've already started talking to other family members about who might be able to take her. Going to see a lawyer next week to have guardianship papers drawn up for my youngest child, so that if the oldest does manage to get CPS involved before I can get her settled elsewhere, the baby will be transfered to the custody of a family friend as opposed to the state. I must be living someone else's nightmare.
