Re: “State Conducting Sweeping Investigation of DHHS's Handling of Child Abuse Reports

Honestly ...I informed the North Coast Journal of this problem and my case in the fall of 2014. God only knows how many more children have suffered since then because of the county cover up and corruption. The Journal and Lost Coast Outpost here pride themselves on exposing the truth....yet NOBODY is interviewing us victims. Grow some bigger balls, interview me and my kids...and WRITE ABOUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON WITH CHILDREN IN HUMBOLDT COUNTY

Re: “State Conducting Sweeping Investigation of DHHS's Handling of Child Abuse Reports

I would LOVE to hear their opinions on my 2014/15 Humboldt county juvenile cases which involve the removal of my children from my custody for attempting to take my baby to an Immunologist in San Francisco for an appointment to assess for possible Lyme Disease and co-infections.

The subsequent DHHS decisions to place them in a domestically violent home and ignore their own interviews with my children, who ALL reported abuse at the hands of my ex... right down to our 5 year old son. The CWS SW interviewed him secretly at his kindergarten, where he reported his dad being abusive towards us daily "for no reason", as well as his thoughts that his baby sister and I were sick.

Because this SW documented his interview in a court deposition, the DHHS supervisors pulled her, as well as numerous nurses who witnessed symptoms of Lyme in my children, off the case.

Then there was the CWS/DHHS "set up" xmas supervised visit, to allow my ex to steal my vehicle and all remaining belongings, money and meds...from their private gated government lot, that they promised me it would be safe on. It took me 14 months to get the courts to make him return it, and in the meantime...the fact that I had to use public transportation between Humboldt and SF constantly for court up here and medical care down there was used against me in getting any portion of custody returned.

In addition to the children's interviews and written statements of abuse, the agencies were provided with restraining orders filed against the children's father, containing 4 typed pages documenting extensive domestic abuse and violence... as well as descriptions of the multiple years it took me to safely get the kids out of that environment...only to have CWS and the DHHS place them right back in.

As a neonatal acute care, childbirth and hospice nurse who accepted RECRUITMENT TO HUMBOLDT in 2001...I am beyond disappointed in ALL of the county agencies involved in the medical kidnappings of my babies.

Since then, the steady denial of the fact that we ALL have Lyme disease with numerous ongoing symptoms, is nothing short of CRIMINAL. Refusing to allow the children to be assessed for my conditions, when it is transmitted in pregnancy, is a dangerous game of medical neglect that could easily end in irreversible damage at any time.

The administration of excessive vaccines during Dr visits where the children are presenting with fevers and rashes is CRIMINAL MEDICAL ASSAULT!!!

LAST SUMMER...I discussed with the SW that currently supervises visits, my observations that my son was not hearing well again. He has already had surgery to restore hearing once, so I was obviously concerned. Now, 8 months later, I'm told his father finally noticed he can't hear again, and according to the Drs, it can't be repaired again at this point due to extent of damage...so he will need hearing aids made at the tender age of 6.

My baby girl has so many skin issues, relapsing fevers and respiratory infections, that they decided extra flu vaccines, steroids, inhalers and home breathing machines where the answer.

Our story is truly unbelievable, even by me and I live it daily. We have now been separated 488 days while they continue to be denied proper care.

Knowing as a nurse and patient, that I am at the end stages of conditions that will cause a fatal event at anytime, is incredibly devastating for many reasons...but the irreplaceable loss of time to make memories with my children is unacceptable.

I understand how sociopolitical my diseases are, and that Humboldt has ZERO desire to truly discuss the elephants in the courtroom.

I am currently battling with late stage chronic Neuroborreliosis, Babesiosis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Murine Typhus, Bartonella and severe Thyroid Disease. My biggest mission and purpose for what is left of my life, is to bring about as much awareness as possible before I pass away or lose my ability to communicate, so that my children have the best possible chance at healthy lives.

At this time I am drafting a letter regarding both our case, as well as our current health and wellbeing. This will be sent to attorneys, news journalists and media outlets worldwide, in an effort to locate the people who still desire to write about the TRUTH and fight for the rights of innocent parents and children who have been victimized by government agendas and the corrupt agencies behind them.
