"What's the one thing you have lost - or would be afraid to lose - which would limit (or has already limited) your personal Freedom?"
Will there be bread in my oven when they come,
lovingly baked from all organic ingredients
and kneaded by my own hands,
the aroma filling my house for them to wonder at?
Will I have cleaned the floors recently enough
that they won’t see I have a dog
that is not quite housebroken?
Will their report say “fecal material observed in laundry room”
which is where he goes for some privacy while he poops?
Will they damn me for my soggy chicken coop
or my un-mowed grass, now mostly beautiful wildflowers?
Will the kefir culturing in the kitchen cabinet
help me or harm me?
Will they rifle through my stuff looking for contraband?
Will they find it?
Is posting this dangerous for me?
I am the mother of a young man who was poisoned by western medicine for many years beginning at such a young age that he has been unable to sit or stand erect for over four years now. Thinking I was doing something good, I filed for disability for him. For a few years this worked out nicely. There was almost enough money coming in to cover the costs of a meditation coach, a yoga therapist, a psychotherapist and a medical intuitive to try to heal him. It was working. Sounds good, right?
Knowing that it was the meds that did this to him, I eschewed continuing with western medical treatments as much as possible. But now and then, considering his very poor condition, there is no way to avoid western medical intervention. And as a disabled person he is subject to heightened scrutiny.
It’s always a medical professional who calls Adult Protective Services, usually after we refuse a flu vaccine or a dangerous, invasive and expensive treatment. Each time has resulted in a “non-open” determination from the caseworker. So far, the caseworkers have been able to see that my son's needs are well taken care of by his loving and hard working mother. They can see that he himself is capable of making his own decisions about treatments and healing protocols. So far...
But new-to-us medical professionals can’t see this. They see a patient who is not getting their help, not a man who can make his own choices. They see extreme illness, not medically induced injury. They see neglect not the fresh baked bread or homemade ferments. And the new doctors call APS.
For a few years my son had a doctor who supported what we were trying to do. This doctor knew us from before the prednisone and the onslaught of other meds prescribed to an eight year old to treat his Crohn’s disease. He could see that we were making slow but significant progress healing my son’s broken body and spirit. This doctor helped enormously, but did not interfere. Alas, all things must come to an end, and the good doctor retired.
There is much more to this story - much, much more. I am telling it on Steem in bits and pieces. Let me wrap this piece up.
We recently started with yet another new doctor. This doctor is showing the signs.
At present, the thing I most fear losing is our privacy. And with it, our medical freedom. We are all in danger of losing both of these.

Thank you for the opportunity to tell you this piece of my story. I just hope I we are safe having done so.
