Lost Trust

My family has been traumatized.

We have spent day in and day out trying to find someone to help us.

There are no words that describe the kind of pain you have watching your loved ones get locked away.

And then you are told that you can not go visit them.

I am sure that they were scared.

We were scared.

We feel lost.

We only knew a life of being together as a family. But it is gone.

We do not trust anyone that works for the justice system.

We do not trust the county we live in.

We are constantly looking over our shoulder to see what the people are doing.

We believe they are murderers and thieves.

Guardianship steals people's trust in everything they were brought up to believe.

We trust that "innocent until proven guilty" is the justice system's mantra. It isn't.

You have accurately summed up the worse weapon in an abusive guardian's arsenal: isolation.

Thank you.

I think there are phases to the guardianship nightmare. Somedays I can't face are ongoing ordeal. After 61/2 years, I am tired.

But somehow, the sun peaks in, gives me strength to continue fightin'.

I don't fear anymore, the perps have more to fear than we do.

Convicted Terrorists have more civil rights than wards and families of wards.

How did this happen?

How can this be?


All by design with court approval?

I feel as though you have looked into my mind. I could have written these same words, as I have the exact feelings. One more thing that I would add is that I used to be a very positive, upbeat person, Now I am a very sad person most of the time, especially when I lay down at night to try to sleep. Many times I cry uncontrollably at the thought of how much evil the world seems to me now. I am afraid of them.

Although there are not words to describe the pain -- and I know there aren't -- you described it perfectly anyway.

Thank you for sharing.

I am sorry for what they've done to you and your loved one.

You have expressed the horror precisely.
