You all need to be careful about 'hoarding' food. I had about 2-300 cans of food stockpiled neatly on shelves. I a few cases of bottled water. I
had about couple dozen boxes of cereal. There were a couple dozen boxes of pasta and some pasta sauce. CPS used that against me when they took my
daughter, saying I was a hoarder and therefore had mental illness.
I tried to explain why I had so much food, but the fact that I was trying to explain myself was used against me as well. They said I had too much
They also found out I had PTSD from my ex's beating and torturing me for years. I had been functioning like that for 14 1/2 years, raising my
daughter by myself, with the aid of public assistance at times. They used that against me because something 'might' happen, even though nothing had
happened in all of these years.
PTSD isn't even a mental illness. It is a psychological injury.
I found out recently that my family had put in my kid's head to call the government on me over it. They all thought I was crazy for putting back
Now, my daughter is going to be sent to live with a man who tortured me. His visitation rights had been terminated when she was two due to how
violent he is. I say is because anyone who knows the dynamics of a batterer knows that these men never change. They live to control other people
through any means necessary. He used to inflict injuries on her intentionally and tell me that it was my fault for leaving him. He wrote letters
describing how he was going to kill me and my daughter and lick the blood up with his tongue. But the government thinks that he is a better person
than I am. And I get flack for not trying to get along with him. Why should any victim of a violent crime be even expected to get along with his/her
perp, regardless of who the perp is?
So, I say this as a warning to those who stockpile. The government can and will use it to take your children if they find out what you are doing.
The pain of losing your child(ren) is indescribable.
So, if you have family members who are against that sort of thing, don't assume that they won't rat on you. You keep what you're doing secret from
anyone you even think might be against it.
And don't think that other preppers will come to your defense if your kids are taken. They will automatically start on about how there has to be
more to it and start referring to you as a child abuser. You will be guilty without a chance to prove your innocence. When the government attacks
you, you will be alone. You will find out that all the like-minded people you thought were around you were two-faced all along.
And CPS workers will lie and say you admitted to stuff in the paperwork to build a stronger case against you. And no one will believe you when you
say so. You will be publicly ostracized and your reputation ruined. And you will be powerless to do a thing about it.
They will only believe your children if it's something bad about you, no matter how outrageous it seems. If your children say something good about
you they claim that you have the children brainwashed and use it as proof that the children need protected from you. And they will twist and spin
every innocent little comment made into something monsterous to help their case against you.
They will lie and badmouth you to your children. In my case, they were telling my daughter that I didn't want her and wasn't doing anything to get
her back. But I was jumping through all the hoops they put there to give the parents false hope of getting their children back, and my daughter saw
this. My daughter learned they were lying and she and I have been closer now then we have in a long time. Some parents don't get that lucky though.
Some of the children may believe it, especially when they're too young to see otherwise. It is very traumatic what they do to innocent children.
My daughter is so stressed out from what they've been doing to her that she throws up and has headaches. She's only 15 years old.
Just a heads up to other parents out there. Stockpiling food is seen by the government as proof of mental illness.
The only remote good thing that has come from my ordeal is that my mind has finally broke free of ever hoping for my family to change and that my
daughter is seeing first hand how evil the government is and seeing that I was telling her the truth all along. Huge price to pay for such knowledge
though. I don't think my daughter will ever doubt a thing I ever tell her again.
All it takes is one phone call to CPS, and they claim it is probable cause and will force their way into your home. All it takes is one family
member, neighbor, friend, etc who thinks you are nuts for 'hoarding' to make that phone call. That one person you try to convince to prep for
disaster could be the one to turn you in. So please, be cautious. It's too late for me, but if you still have your children then it's not too late
for you. I know you may think nothing like that could ever happen, but I never thought anything like this would happen to me, either. I am not
asking people to live in fear. I am asking people to be cautious and vigilant. I hope none of you end up like me and my child.
