Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy
Do you know anyone that has these traits?
But I Have heard of several people (mostly women/mothers) who were falsely accused of MSP and lost their children because of said false accusations. They played hell getting their children back.
I tend to doubt MSP "diagnoses", because they are quite subjective (ie, there is no medical test to conclusively prove this "diagnosis"). This this so-called mental illness diagnsosis is a catch-all "diagnosis" when a child's illness cannot be definitively resolved and often doctors feel helpless to do anything but blame the mother/parents when all else fails. This "diagnosis" has been easily abused and misused by the medical profession, CPS and law enforcement against innnocent parents. Do a little research on these falsely accused parents....their lives are RUINED and so are their families.
Sorry....I think *if* this kind of thing happens, it is EXTREMELY RARE, if even happens at all.
Unavailable for questioning:
Wow. Your logic allows you to conclude that a physician's misdiagnosis of an illness means that the illness does not exist? That's quite a non sequitur you've demonstrated.
And, that's not even addressing your impression that physicians will make a misdiagnosis of an adult because they need a scapegoat for their being stumped in making a diagnosis of a possible medical problem for a child. What the hell?
Methinks she doth protest too much.
Sorry if that was too difficult for you to understand.
In a nutshell:
When a doctor is STUMPED and cannot diagnose, treat and cure a child who continues to return time and time again--still very sick, eventually they give up on finding a natural cause for the child's illness.
Instead, they begin to look at the PARENT as the cause. It's a much easier way out. Makes them look good, gets them off the hook, and puts the parent ON the hook.
Do a little research about falsely accused MSP parents and the damage done to their children, families and lives by a FALSE accusation of MSP. It happens a lot more than you think.
Sorry, I don't buy into the MSP scare.....it's stupid. MOST parents are not going to harm their child in order to get attention. I suspect MSP is a QUITE RARE event....if it even occurs at all.
And I say this as the daughter of a 30+ year RN, BSN, MSN, CEN who has spent years in the trenches treating all kinds of ailments in the ER. If MSP was going to show up---that'd be a first line place for it to happen. ER's offer relative anonymity--until a patient becomes a frequent flyer.....at which time a little more scruitiny is apporpriate---along with a referral to a primary care physician who will then do the work up and decide what is going on with the child.
I do know a little bit about what I"m talking about.....and I've also done the research on the falsely accused. It happens a lot more than you realize.
Do the research. It's not that hard. Google is your friend.
Still going with the non sequitur, eh?
And, now you add a shift of burden?
Hmmm. Brush up in the logic department, Jeny.
Methinks she doth drink way too much scotch and PWI.
