You’ve GOT to be kidding me 6/5/07

You’ll never believe what El Chupa Douchebag is pulling out of his ass for court next Monday.

Apparently, I have MUNCHHAUSEN SYNDROME.

The back story is that Jedi was being tested for ADHD for quite some time by the school. After months of grappling over it, I was finally given substantial evidence that he does indeed need some help in this department and took my doctor’s advice about him taking medication. He’s not happy, I guess because he’s not in control and he’s trying to make it about him – not Jedi, so …  what did he do? He called and DEMANDED to speak to Jedi’s doctor (who is in the same practice as my doctor, who I see occasionally when my doctor is booked) and told the office triage nurse that I’m being checked for Munchhausen syndrome, I assume to discredit my ability to make decisions for my son.

Nice.

If you don’t know what it is, look it up and have a laugh on me.

I mean c’mon – if he realy believed that where the hell was he for all their doctor’s appointments? Could he be trying to say I made up Pickle’s seizures too? When there are MULTIPLE, HIGHLY ACTIVE, EEGs showing seizures once per second?

Can you say : DESPERATION ?

(severe eyeroll)

Also, he refused to pick the kids up at daycare tonight. Said he would be where he is supposed to be at the time he is supposed to be there, because the restraining order doesn’t say that he can pick them up there, only here. So after trying for 20 minutes to explain to him that it only says he can pick them up here, because this is where I live and it’s an exception to him not being allowed to be around ME. I find this amusing since he’s been trying to get me to meet him halfway somewhere, because he can’t afford the gas. And the daycare is CLOSER to him and it’s 3rd party involvement so that he doesn’t have to deal with me.

The man makes no sense.

  1. LOL Munchausen by proxy is so so rare- I’ve never worked with a doctor who’s ever seen a case. When docs at Children’s are totally stumped by an ill child, they joke that it’s Munchausen by proxy. JOKE. I don’t mean to laugh at your situation but jeez. (rolling eyes in disbelief)

  2. I have to give him (well, his lawyer) props for being creative. But as you and Yimp said, there is medical evidence of an issue. Also, I’ve never seen ADHD in a case of Munchausen (I’ve done lots of reading on this topic); it’s moreso poisonings, or something that is a physical illness that the parent causes. Unfortunately for him and his creative, but poorly researched, lawyer, he is going to look like an idiot in court when it comes out. Is there a such thing as stupid ex-husband syndrome?

  3. Munchausen syndrome is a psychiatric disorder in which those affected feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma in order to draw attention or sympathy to themselves. It is in a class of disorders known as factitious disorders which involve “illnesses” whose symptoms are either self-induced or falsified by the patient. It is also sometimes known as hospital addiction syndrome.
    OH MY GOD. There are NO words. Absolutely none.
