|"This woman" by the name of Linda shows up to my home, immediately upon my opening the door, jumps back. I answered the door, having been sick, and taking care of a sick child that had the flu or at least flu like symptoms catch up to her at approximately 4 AM earlier that morning, in simply shorts, I myself still recovering from the VIRUS we all caught, my almost 2 year old son included. Whom got over it in simply 1 night with tylenol! Upon entering my dwelling she looked around and heard my daughter whining that her body ached, like previously mentioned "Flu". Upon her hearing that sound, she asked why I had not taken to the doctor, and to which I replied "She just cropped up a fever about 4 AM this morning..." Then I tell my daughter, WELL WITHIN earshot (less than 5 feet away from this woman) "Hold on sweetheart let me get your tylenol", to which when I return with a bottle of red liquid, I pass in front her this woman's face, upon returning from giving the proper dosage, she queries "So you are giving her medication with it being prescribed?!". To which I so wanted to bite her head off due to the sheer amount of obliviousness she was showing, "It's tylenol, she has a fever, isn't that what I am supposed to do?!". I mean seriously "this woman" is an investigator, and cannot pick up on what went on in my home simply around her in the short time she was there. Now I MUST take my daughter to the doctor, when they will simply tell me already what I know... "It is a virus and must run its course." I know this 100% as fact, as I suffered for 2 days with it, my son suffered 1 night with it (probably because I caught his earlier than mine, I just thought I was fatigued), and now it has caught up to my daughter. So I must waste money on something that need not be done, as she is currently sleeping it away as I type this, and in doing so take food out of my family's mouth. |
I thought CYFD was supposed to be there to aid the good families, the ones that are doing their best, may not be making it the greatest, but making it none-the-less, and of course those whose children are in NO DANGER in being with. I don't do drugs, barely have a shot a month of alcohol, and that is only done when the kids are asleep, and my other half smokes cigarettes OUTSIDE for the kids sake, as well as it being stated in out lease no smoking within the home. Sure my place may slight mess at the moment, but I've been sick, had a sick son, and now a sick daughter. It is not like I would let it get to the point of endangering my children, I would crawl around on hands and knees to clean if that were the case!
CYFD needs to get investigators that honor the US legal ideology of "Innocent until Proven Guilty", not "lets jump to conclusions out of obliviousness, ignorance or both" or simply those that are able to pick up on the subtleties or much less so things that simply would have had to be forcibly ignored to overlook.
