Please try not to be too fearful about CPS. I doubt this will even rise up to a case that they would send a welfare call to, but if they do- be polite let them in so they can see there is nothing for them to even be bothered by. I know that here in NY CPS has nothing invested in taking children that are not in danger. NY CPS wants to keep families together and tend to give parents 3rd, 4th, 5th chances who truly do not deserve to be given a second chance. They keep children with parents who have bitten their children, let them out of a car at night on a freeway and driven away and even to parents who have repeatedly punched their children- that is not good either, but it seems that they need a great deal of evidence before a child is removed. I would encourage you to be polite and allow them to see with their own eyes that there is nothing of danger coming to your daughter.

She said my daughter could be in danger if I'm "starving" myself and not having enough calories in my body to make sound decisions. Then she said if I'm binging myself on other days, my face is probably too much in the food to pay much attention to her!
So many offensive assumptions!!!

I have no advice to add, just hoping everything works out for you.

After reading this and all the posts, I am absolutely shocked. I'm sure you need to think this through and you'll make the right decision for you and your daughter.

Unbelievable! Well...I guess not really. NOTHING surprises me anymore.

How dare this woman talk to you like that let alone threaten you! I would not want another thing to do with her and would limit any contact to the absolute necessary. There are agencies who have good counselors not tied to the system. Some charitable organizations. Churches. Hopefully you can find some help that is not tied to the system.

Its terrible to be held over a barrel like that. She needs to back off and do her job...period! Not come off like some high and mighty know-it-all. Heaven knows there are plenty of REAL problems out there for them to deal with like some of the cases Carly mentioned. Too bad she's too stupid to focus her authority on someone like you.

Carry Dr. Johnson's book The Alternate Day Diet with you at any time that you may be seeing this person, or any person to whom she refers you, her supervisor, or at any visit to your Dr or your child's dr.

Get the library copy if you don't have one, but used copies are also very inexpensive, order from Amazon or find another used bookseller on the net.

For anyone who questions you, your answer should be to pull out the book, point to it, and say, "I just told her I was following Dr. Johnson's guidelines for this very healthy, proven way of eating."

Also, yes, I'd register a complaint, but that may just be me.

Know that you have been following a sensible weight loss program that has a lot of credibility and has been around for years. ((hugs))

I wouldnt bother trying to reason with her and explain ADF. Obviously she is a know-it-all with the open mind of a tree stump. Tell her you missed the meeting because you were out shopping for ice cream and cookies. LOL

At the very least you can request a different provider, and lodge a complaint with the supervisor at that facility and the state licensing board, if the therapist holds a license. I'm so, so sorry!
AGREE!! Go find someone else, if need be and report this CRAZY woman!! Can't you just walk away and never go back there?

Only a few people in the real world know how I'm actually losing weight. I just say I'm eating less when people ask. I'm tired of listening to negative nancies who just regurgitate what our illustrious government tells them what and how to eat. I find most people can't or won't think for themselves.

So's Lyricsmom's therapist.
Yep. So disturbing to think that doctors don't know everything isn't it?

Unbelievable and frightening. I know you will prevail and your daughter will be safe and happy with you while that "therapist" hopefully finds a special kind of hell for what she has put you through.

"Tell her you missed the meeting because you were out shopping for ice cream and cookies. LOL" Hahaha - that made me laugh JayLynn. :-) I did skip out on her required group session so we'll see if I get a CPS knock at the door in the next few days. I think I am going to try not to rock the boat so when we have our next scheduled one-on-one, I'm just going to play it cool regards my WOE, tell her what she wants to hear basically, and play her game. I hate confrontation and I know I should probably file a complaint now because like Jedswife said, it may seem like retaliation on my part if I do it after CPS comes by. Oh geez, I hate being put in this position but I have to protect myself and my family too. Thanks again everyone for all your valuable input and support. It makes me feel really not alone in this and I really appreciate it.

TOTALLY agree with this. Better to be first off the mark. Then IF anyone puts in a complaint, THEY look like they are retaliating.
