I have a question for everyone. Right now I am taking remeron at night for depression, trazodone at night for sleep, buspar and klonopin x2 a day for anxiety, and vimpat x2 a day for seizures. I am currently separated from my husband although I have not filed yet. He is saying since I cant drive right now and take so many meds, I could get the kids taken away. I have 7 and 3 year old girls. I have always been the stay at home mom with them. I have never hit, hurt, or abused them in any way. He is telling me if we both had these problems, they could get taken by the state. But since it is just me, they could get taken away and full custody could be given to him. He "doesn't want to fight me in court, but will if I get nasty and make him". Has anyone had this problem before, and seeing as I am always the sole provider and they DO NOT want to live with him or be separated from me, does the state have any grounds to take them away if there is no way I could be proven an un-fit mother? I live in town, can walk almost anywhere, could walk to their doctor if needed, the hospital is even closer but if needed in an emergency I could always just call 911. Just wondering anyone else's thoughts or opinions on this, and if they have ever dealt with it.
