My mom has Multiple sclerosis and she cant do anything for herslef anymore. My dad has been abusing her. I just talked to her soical worker today and we're going to try try to get me and my husband guardianship of her. Social worker says the judge may not do anything since my mom wont admit to anything and wants to stay with my dad. I have 3 brothers and 1 sister. Some are staying neutral and some are on dads side. So I cant talk to any of them about this because I dont want my dad getting any info. This is a very difficult situation for me. I definetly want to do this, especially since im the only one willing to stand up for her, but its very hard for me. I went through many years of abuse and eventually went to foster care and had many years of therapy but its still hard. And to make it worse I have social anxeity disorder. So I am really worried about having to talk in court...saying the right things and not getting tongue tied or stammering and just plain making sense. I want to be prepared. Im just wondering if anyone has been through this before and if theres any advice you could give?
