BPDex emailed and said child 7 needs therapy due to having a new sibling (My child born 6 months ago)
We thought it was weird, but figured child does need therapy due to having BPD mom, so we decided to take this chance and agree and offered up a suggestion of a highly qualified local family therapist.
BPD wrote back with her options. I look into them all and they are all working with the same Domestic Violence family support group. There was one who is one of the mean PTA moms at school!
There has never been DV. She tried to falsely claim it almost 3 years ago, it was tossed out of court and she has been crying DV since.
We wrote back and said, "These are DV support groups and not appropriate, neither is a parent from child's school. Here are some more highly qualified docs within a mile of you that we would be OK with."
This is what she wrote back:
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behaviors including social, economic, emotional and psychological tactics, including manipulation intending to impact and control another person.
I understand you may not recognize these behaviors,
But that is the environment that CHILD was born into and continues to be exposed to on a regular basis. Therapists are mandated by law to maintain confidentiality.
Thank you for the options, I appreciate your mindfulness of our transportation needs
I will check into them.
Please reconsider my options as child severely needs this type of support.
I can tell that CHILD is now being provided structure in your home, This is evident in less stressful transition from your home to mine.
How to even respond to this?
