Protective services came to interview mummy & I today because someone had called them with a 'concern'. Thank God I had read another lady on here a little bit ago raging about how dare they do this to her: her house was immaculate, her mom was immaculate, her care was immaculate etc. because after reading her comments and everyone's responses I too decided it was actually needed and important and although flawed if they saved one vulnerable elder then even then it was worth it. Feel the same with those who try to stand and save children but we have all heard the terrible stories when it all goes south and children that should have stayed with their family has been ripped from them to then be put in unbelievable circumstances while all the well meaning people are still trying to 'help'. But, I still believe in oversight and today I just thank God I read that earlier question and her indignation because for a quick minute I could feel the disbelief, the 'offense' the righteous anger, if I can be dramatic and I caught myself saying, who said this and what did they say? I caught myself but oh I so now get it, I so now understand that lady now that it has happened to me. My mom has been with me almost 8 years. She is the Apple of my eye and my dearest friend and I love and make sure she has everything to be safe and as comfortable and happy as she can be under the circumstances. But....I am tired I am worn I've been sick for over a month and thank God have caregivers to help but oh dear...I only have a short time left with this sweet dear woman and since I've moved to this new town I've had such a nightmare with these caregivers and agencies. I'm shocked and discouraged. I don't want the precious time left with her to be ruined by this stupid cr*p. I want peace and joy and stability. The move has been so hard.
Sorry so long
please pray for us
