On Tuesday, I also discovered that the school district did not receive my son's paperwork stating our intent to homeschool. That was news to me, since I mailed it out back in August, but okay, this shouldn't be a big deal, I just have to go get a new copy of his immunizations from his doctor, and I'll hand deliver the paperwork to the school system myself. This is also what I said IN COURT after finding out the school system never got it. And supposedly that was fine.
Obviously someone ELSE (gee, I wonder who) decided that was NOT fine, and that myself and my husband objecting strongly to her appointment as trustee over MY SON'S inheritance, needed to be put in our places. Because obviously, we're supposed to you know, roll over, beg, heel, etc.
News flash: the last time I checked, I was not of the canine persuasion.
Thursday afternoon, I go out to feed the dog and there's a car in my driveway. I had a bad feeling about this, and I was soon to be proven correct.
Who was it you asked?
Try the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.
Oh yes. The first thing they mentioned was the missing homeschool paperwork. I explained what had happened and how it was being remedied. So the homeschooling issue IS a NON ISSUE. But as they say in the informercials, "But wait! There's more!"
Someone, (and yes, we know the parties involved who are behind this), took it upon themselves to call DCS not only because of the homeschooling but because they suspected that my husband and I were on drugs!
Why? Because we have bad teeth. My issue was inherited from BOTH sides of my family, my teeth are horrible. Right after my son was born, they started chipping and breaking off. Sadly, this will admittedly give me the appearance of having 'meth mouth'. My husband's issue is similar, his teeth have fallen out due to overcrowding and his parents refusing to follow his dentist's suggestion to get braces when he was a teenager. My son will have his father's teeth and will need braces in the future in order to prevent the same from happening to HIM when HE turns 50.
A urine drug screen from both of us quickly showed that we are not using ANY substances. We never have. For your edification, here is a list of medications I am currently taking as prescribed by my physician:
Losartan Potassium: 100mg a day for high blood pressure (and guess what kids? Thanks to all this bullshit, it ain't working anymore because my blood pressure has consistently in the upper 160s and above since JULY)
Coreg: 12.5mg 2x a day to help try and reverse the HEART DAMAGE I SUSTAINED AS A RESULT OF UNTREATED BLOOD PRESSURE. (caps intentional)
Pravastatin: 40mg a day for high cholesterol
Flexeril: 10mg 2 a day as I suffer from chronic pain issues with my back and arthritis.
Metformin: 500mg 2x a day BECAUSE I AM DIABETIC
I also take Tylenol and Advil as needed.
The third thing was that we have a deadbolt on our front and back entry doors into our house. That's funny as I was pretty sure deadbolts on such are fairly, oh I don't know, COMMON. However, the 'reporter' said that the deadbolt was on my son's BEDROOM door. A quick look at the doors of the all bedrooms in the house proved that to be false. Our master bedroom where my husband and I sleep, has a turn lock. My son's bedroom door only has a doorknob, no lock. The keys to the entry doors to the house itself are unlocked by a key, my son knows where the key is and how to unlock the door should the need arise in an emergency.
Because only 4 people besides myself and my husband were privy to the factually inaccurate Guardian Ad Litem report which was used to 'anonymously report' to DCS, and being able to eliminate one of those persons off the top, that leaves 3 people. Two attorneys and an individual who can hide behind them in order to try and get what she wants. I've already reported one attorney to the TN Board of Professional Responsibility. I have also already consulted with an attorney to handle the false allegations to TNDCS.
It's should be noted that knowingly filing or encouraging someone to file a false report to TNDCS is a Class E Felony, punishable by up to 3 years imprisonment.
Even though I am somewhat reclusive, I am in fact considered to be a public figure, my following may be small, but false allegations of child endangerment and drug use are libelous, slanderous, and defamatory, not only to myself and my public reputation, but to my family.
And how has YOUR week been?
