Understanding the Language Used

Medical kidnapping and illegal seizure are terms rarely used in the medical, psychiatric and law community, but they are real terms. You can read about medical kidnapping on Attorney Allison Folmar web site. To explain it to you in terms you may understand. For example, you take you child to the doctors and your complains are regarding their vaccinations. You explain to the doctor that your child had a reaction to the previous vaccination and you do not want to get any more for your child. The doctor does not agree with you and tells you that if your child does not get the vaccine they will cite you for medical neglect, eventhough your child has had all their other vaccines, but due to your refusal the medical personnel at the hospital calls CPS and they arrive. CPS states that since you refused medical treatment, your child needs these vaccinations and that is why they are having medical problems, you disagree, but since the hospital made the call the Social Worker states they have to take the child. This was one example of medical kidnapping.

What was done wrong? Nothing

What could the parent have done differently? Nothing

Where her rights violated? Yes

Where did the child go? The CPS worker took the child to enter foster care, while the case is being created for you to go to court.

Is this legal? No, but Medical kidnapping is crime, but many Attorneys do not practice specifically in this type of crime and do not refer to it as such. Within the medical kidnapping, you have violations of other laws that aren't followed, such as civil rights violations, the 4th, 8th and 14th amendment. Depending on the state you live in there may be other violations.

How can this happen? Financial Incentive

Everytime a child comes into state care, the federal government pays the state agency money for each child. If your child has a disability that comes into foster care, the state receives additional money; therefore, the more kids in care, the more money the state receives. Now, to be fair and honest The State of Maryland Baltimore City Department of Social Services are mandated to uphold policies and procedures to ensure children are safe, but if you don't have an administration that is abiding by the laws, policies or procedures then your rights are violated.

Who advocates or speaks up for the child and parent? Y.O.U

Art Process

The theme for February's Mighty Art Room is process, so i thought I'd show something that is taken photos of at the time. It's quite old, but generally the way i most paint. From sketch to finished piece. This is one of the Fairy Godfather, which is my original character that I've written many books about and hope to publish one day when the health and pain stars align! This is a painting done digitally over a pencil sketch. I use a program called Painter which is very much like painting in real life, just less messy! 😅 I'm not very good with layers and things so yeah, but somehow it gets done.

Well off to finish chores so i can enjoy the olympics tonight! Yay! i hope everyone has as good a weekend as possible! #ChronicMigraineSyndrome #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #Art #ArtTherapy #AnkylosingSpondylitis #SpinalStenosis #DoubleVision #cps #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #sciatica #nervepain #BipolarDepression #Asthma #Anxiety

What a Mess! #cleaninginpain
No I don't have ocd. And if I did at least someone would "get me". I tried cleaning a file cabinet in a desperate attempt to find my child's birth certificate; I was careful and am on oxycontin 30mgs daily slow release and had on my tens system. Within 30
minutes my neck had more than enough and within 45 I could not move. The bag of recyclable unneccesary papers was over flowing and I found unused holiday cards. No birth certificate and flat out in bed with fast acting morphine and muscle relaxants. That was my accomplishment for two days. Other than using the embarrassing portable toilet and looking at my mobil/cell telephone in bed my spouse had to wait on me while working full-time from home during quarantine. This is not new. This is everyday quarantine or not. My spouse works fulltime, handles all household chores, pays the bills, comforts me, cooks, does errands, handles my meds and he does not complain. I feel guilty and miss our hikes in the forest, surprising my family with their favorite meal, I miss organizing and cleaning. I must be crazy. Who misses cleaning? I can not accept that my sheets need changing and the family pets need grooming. I can't accept that my best day is a walk with my rollater or walking sticks around our house two times. I hate my disease I hate, hate,hate it. A good day is rare and I remember them in detail because of their rare occurrance. I want to play in the dirt abd swim in the lake and yes,I want to vaccuum my own living room.

I do not remember what it felt like to have no pain. That life seems like someone else's. I want people to remember me for my good spirit. I am aiming to generate inner strength and accept my fate. I want to be seen as determined and strong by my friends and family. I am tired of feeling defeated. Each day I will contribute something to make this world a better place. That is my goal.


Sunshine and Guilt #cps #Fibromyalgia

It is a beautiful, sunny fall day; I am plagued with guilt from lying in bed. I woke, took meds, have on clothes and make-up for no one to see.
