Hi Everyone!!! Look forward to having a great friendship with all of you. I sorry I have to start out with something sad!!
My Baby Got taken from me in the hospital. I have epilepsy and DCF is saying the overnight didn't go well. As far as i'm concerned, it didn't go well because of a fire alarm and strobe light went off in my room. I called the nurse to come in to make sure my baby would be fine while I tried to cover my eyes with the blindfold that i asked the nurse to bring; but it did no good. the light was too bright. I started to get a horrible migraine and foam in my mouth. I was close to having a seizure. Once the strobe stopped the migraine and foam went away after 30 minutes, but i was exhausted like a had a seizure. Within the 24 hour period, my baby got taken the same day! my civil rights have been taken from me. DCF is using my epilepsy against me. Has anyone else had trouble with child custody because of epilepsy? I just want to know i'm not alone in this.
