tomorrow could kill me

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
i'm sitting here chainsmoking, and stuffing my face with king sized candy bars and mnt dews. my kids are in bed, and i'm netflixing greys anatomy. its 11:30, and I should be asleep, but I cant sleep. we have a big day tomorrow. tomorrow is the day when I get put on trial. my kids and I will wake up early, and head to the courthouse, where I could lose them. I could lose my kids tomorrow, and it will kill me. I've spent the last hour, trying to decide what to wear. what will say " im responsible, please don't take my kids". a month ago, me and my mom were best friends. she stood next to me, defending my parenting in court against my ex and his family. tomorrow my mother will testify against me. how did we get here? how the hell did this happen? I don't know. I don't know why. I just know that my mother over the last week, has managed to convince people that i'm the next casey Anthony. i'm a mom who works full time. I don't have friends, I don't go out, I have had 2 drinks in the past year and a half. my kids are happy and healthy and straight A kids with perfect attendance. but I don't have money, and my exes family does. where I live living together unmarried is a sin. it doesn't matter if you have been best friends for 5 years, unmarried is an immortal sin. and I live with my boyfriend, unmarried. the allegations against us from my mother are horrific. they even used the word satanic when referring to how I punish my kids. im trying to be strong, smile for my kids, but my heart is beyond broken. I haven't cried, I haven't cracked. trying to breathe. cps is coming with me to court tomorrow. i'm praying its enough to save us. my mother, who is one of the most ungodly people I know, is at a prayer church meeting tonight. and then tomorrow she will go and take an oath. raise her right hand and lie about me. her only daughter. her best friend up until a month ago. its going to kill me. I don't know how to survive this.

I am so sorry for you going thru this.  My daughter went thru something similar in the fact her ex accused her of poisoning my grandson.  Could not believe the hell that started.  We persevered.  Eventually a few years later he dropped out of my grandson's life.  Being a mom, I could never go against one of my children like that.  A mom should always be behind her child.  You can dislike your childs behaviour, but never your child, and you should never go against your child.

I hope things go well for you tomorrow.  Update us and let us know.

Why did your mom turn on you?

What I want to know is why is a custody battle going to trial? There is more to this than you are saying.

She just decided to turn against you out of the blue?
Seems like you're leaving out key details. I don't know your story though.

Wear a long skirt or a pair of black slacks. Trust me, shave, and wear pantyhose. Wear a nice pair of shoes and a respectable top. Something that covers your boobs. Pull your hair into a neat bun or ponytail, or it your hair is short, make sure you style it and dry it, no going in with a wet head. Put on a small amount of light colored makeup, nothing that stands out or is too flashy or dark. Wear a bra under your top, and wear underware. Seriously. No flashly long hanging earrings, either studs or nothing. NO other jewelry. Tonight, make sure you know what you are going to say, be as calm and confident as possible. Make sure you do not interrupt your mother if it is her turn to speak. Tell yourself silently, you will have your chance. The judge will not like you if you interrupt your mother. Don't attack your mother let her be the one to attack you. She will look like the liar and the ass if you remain composed while she is attacking you.

I'm sorry to hear that! Something huge is missing here! What does your mother have against you? What are they going to base on from taking your kids ?

You mom sounds crazy. Im sure they will see how she was for you at the last hearing and now saying opposite as last time. Hope all goes well for you and your kids.

There is more to this story!!!! There is a reason your mom turned on you...Smoking inside the house is BAD BAD BAD...Also, if you don't have money, maybe your kids will have a better life with their daddy?
