Hi I'm after some advice regarding yet another Child service safeguarding investigation my family and I are under. I'm a mum of 2 and I was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the beginning of the year after spending 4 week in a psychiatric hospital after overdosing a few times. Child social got involved and contacted my kids schools and, gp this lasted a couple of weeks and then The case was closed. I then had another bad turn a few weeks later and overdosed again which opened another case. This case was closed last week again with no further issues, however over the weekend I realised I had messed up my Meds and accidentally took too many I also ended up taking too many paracetamol as I was very confused and had a major headache ( yes I know this was stupid) none of this was with intention to harm myself however when I contacted the crisis team to get some reassurance they insisted on sending an ambulance. I ended up spending the night in hospital on a drip because of the paracetamol but discharged myself the next morning against medical advice as I just wanted to get home. Now child social are involved again and insisted to meet with myself and my husband today forcing him to take 2 hours out of work. When we got there, the worker we were meant to see was too busy to see us and we had to see a different lady who knew nothing about the most recent referal, she asked me what had happened and I told her about my Meds but didn't mention the paracetamol. My question is will they realise I didn't tell the whole truth and what is likely to happen? Can they force me to go back into a psychiatric hospital? Or take my kids because of this?
