Well, as I'm SURE you are well aware, CPS here on mothering is a can of worms and I predict a slew of "protect yourself" emails...
But before that all starts, I want to say that this *may* be an opportunity. Many agencies have resources to provide medical evaluations, support, and other things that might actually help you and your daughter.
If things appear *safe* and you feel that you actually could benefit from some help, I might encourage you to be open with the worker about your needs.
And, I'd clean up .
Mommy to kids
Whenever someone is in crisis here at MDC, I notice a theme, people always comb through your previous threads to try and better understand your situation.
I just did that with you and I have to say you posted a thread a while back that had red flags all over it.
You lost your job, you got depressed and began sleeping during the day.
Your child was trashing your house, pooping in things and just wreaking havoc on your house.
A lot of people were worried and asked you to get help for your depression.
Have you done that yet? I'm not trying to gang up on you, but I think your situation might be "that bad".
Please don't shut out help. People care, I care so please don't take this as judgment.
When you are in the thick of depression it's easy to say "well things aren't that bad, my kids are just messy and it's hard to keep up."
If you have food messes and things smeared all over that aren't from today it is that bad.
Be honest with yourself. Are your dishes piled up? Is there trash overflowing? Are there little messes and destructive places all over your house that you just haven't got around to yet?
I'm saying this as someone who struggles with mental illness, I'm not judging you. I just want you to be honest with yourself.
This could be an opportunity to change.

What I find interesting about CPS threads is that in circumstances where people need help, CPS seems to be the first line of help. I know not everyone has friends and family who are supportive but it does sadden me that friends/family are not helping out.
I think CPS is needed but what happened to families taking care of families?
(this is just something I noticed. My family has stepped in to help me get on track at various points in my life.)
