I’m sitting here alone in my living room because I can’t sleep. A lot has been happening lately and quite frankly, I’ve been having a rough time dealing with it.
At this point in time, aside from all the health related issues we face, I’m preoccupied with this whole CPS thing.
The reality is that it’s probably over, at least for the most part. As soon as they receive the medical records in question and they can verify our story, the case will be closed. Their words, not mine.
Having said that, this whole experience has changed me and honestly it’s affected how I approach this blog.
There are some things that have happened that I would have shared, prior to this. However, having been through what we’ve been through, I’m hesitant to be as honest and transparent as I have been in the past.
It’s so easy to take things out of context when all you have to go on is what you read on a blog, especially if you haven’t read the whole thing.
In the advent of someone reporting us to CPS, we now know it can happen.
If you had asked me if I thought that would ever happen, I would have been doubtful. Having said that, clearly it’s possible and I fear this happening again.
The thing with CPS is that essentially, you’re guilty until proven innocent. Anyone and I mean anyone, can report a “concern” and more likely than not, it will get investigated. While the CPS investigators in our case are really nice and this has gone smoothly, forth most part, that doesn’t mean it always will.
Until a case is officially closed and perhaps even after that, your life and everything you hold dear, rests in their hands. What’s more is that fact that CPS holds an enormous amount of power.
It’s a lot like touching a hot stove. Once you’ve been burned, you exercise extra caution in the future.
The problem is that I don’t know what, if anything, will prompt the next person to do something crazy and there really is no way to protect oneself from these spite calls.
If I don’t share openly than its like allowing the few, to have far too much power over me and my family.
I don’t know what I’m going to do.
