MUNCHAUSEN SYNDROME BY PROXY - SUPOSSED DEBUNKED THEORY 
Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy - The supposed 'debunked theory'.

Munchausen Mothers . The Supposed 'debunked theory '
 
Written by Melizza .Jayne Moore
 
2nd June 2014
 
The year was 1951, an English doctor coined the phrase Munchausen Syndrome . This is a mental health condition in which individuals injure themselves in order to get attention . It may sound extreme that somebody reaches those depths , in order to elicit attention . Usually if somebody is unwell , they would visit a medical professional to get treated . But to do self harm to yourself deliberately, is a different matter .

Of course a hypochrondriac is different . Their incessant complaints of ill health Constantly seeking remedies for illnesses , imagined or real . So where is the line drawn ? . Such time wasters may be dismissed from doctors surgeries or hospital emergency departments . It is only when the person keeps reappearing with the same complaints repeatedly or possible different places to avoid detection , that alarm bells start to ring . There are such terms as malingering , attention seeker . They must know deep down they are pretending ! . 
 
A person may also tell tales that do not ring true . These are the tall stories that the disorder is named after . The eighteenth century Baron Munchausen . A person who is insistent that these things are true may also be known as Walter Mitty characters . They make good con men too . As we go back in time there has been stories in the press ( in which I ardently follow as a true crime fanatic) , of where women , usually a mother has been accused of harming a child in their care . A child with 'illnesses' that necessitated, in health care professionals are being used as leverage , into the delusion within that the child is sick . A raised temperature , rashes . Unexplained ailments. This is a variant form of the woman who may intentionally hurts herself . She is using the child to gain attention for herself . The child is a mere puppet . I am not suggesting that all mothers who routinely fantasize the child is unwell . Or that she has gone to the professionals worried for her child . It is the ones that have nothing flagged up at all .
 
Under the umbrella term of Personality Disorder , there are various diagnostic labels . One of them is Narcissistic Personality Disorder . Covertly within this disorder is the term MsBPor F.I.I . In recent years, case law has many convictions regarding a mum who has hurt or killed a child. Subsequent appeals against the lengthy sentences for murder or Infanticide has revealed that these women were actually innocent . In particular the case of Sally Clarke . Her conviction was overturned . But it was all too late . The poor lady died in the end . Can you imagine what that must be like , being compared to killers like Kathleen Folbigg , MaryBeth Tinning and Beverley Allitt ? . Note that the killer Diane Downs killed her child , maiming the others , because she wanted her lover to remain with her . She was said to have suffered from Psychopathic Personality Disorder . That these other three women killed innocent children . Kathleen Folbigg was later found to have a Personality Disorder . That some unknown expert witness who has labelled you as a potential child abuser . Child Abusers do not walk around with a label visible on their heads . They are all around us . To the person that is too harsh to their children , to the bruised and frightened malnourished child you might see if only peoples eyes were truly open.
 
A Personality Disorder is a polite way of saying that your childhood or young adulthood had some trauma in it . That certain disorder was coined in the 1930's. As a true crime fanatic from early childhood ( I know it sounds macabre , but some state I was always destined to be a true crime writer , much like my idols that I read) . It sounds rather grandiose of me to utter that I have in depth knowledge of 20th century criminology .

All human beings possess Personality Disorder traits , yet many are not diagnosed with this mainly insidious mental health condition . As it is invisible. to most people. It is the last resort diagnosis after all else fails . A person may be labelled as just quirky . The answer lies in why this is the case . Are we all guilty as a society , for not spotting that there are people who do fit the profile of hidden Child Abuse . Those people you might not even guess . That Child Abuse is a taboo that is swept under the carpet , lest not to discuss it , in case it offends the person sitting next to us .
 
In Family Courts , expert witnesses are being instructed to be on the lookout to find any symptoms of MsbP or F.I.I . This is a terrifying prospect for such a mother . That her medical records can be revealed for all and sundry . Analysed for indicators of MSBp . It is very easy for this to happen . What they are REALLY looking for is overly dramatic behaviour in any format  ( histrionic) and Narcissism ) . This equates to a selfish and a vain person . The primary love of one's self . An expert witness is paid THOUSANDS of pounds to write a report, that reflects that a person is somehow unfit to rear their offspring , enough to have that child to be removed from parental care . Such is lost in those moments when a Judge rubber stamps those orders . Be very careful ladies of repeated visits to G.P's etc with complaints of 'little Johnny is very sick' . It could land you with the unfortunate label of the above . 

These expert witnesses have a lot to answer for . No I am not talking about you Professor Sir Roy Meadows or you David Southall used in COUNTLESS court cases ! . These theories are now said to be debunked , but are they ?

Care Leavers

May 16, 2014 at 12:50pm

I can remember it like it was yesterday . Though it now almost twenty one years ago . It was 1993 , and I was living in a semi independent unit known as "210" . It is actually 210 Mansfield Road . I had been living there since October 1992 . It was big house with like bedsits in it . There was a caretaker who lived in . We just had to make sure our social workers saw us to be honest for "handovers" , check in with the project workers and manager every so often . We were basically independent . Left to our own devices . 

I dunno about every other resident , but for me I had what would be now known as hardship payments/job seekers allowance . I had a set amount in which to live on . My rent was sorted out via  Social Services etc . I also went and did a YTS in hospitality and catering . ( Training in being a Chef basically. I did so NVQ level 1 and some of 2 in that .  )

I had just my food and essentials to get in weekly .  This is where I met the now world famous actress Samantha Morton . ( honestly that girl has always been the same ) . I was a trustee who was allowed to answer the phones in the office etc. But before this I was in foster care . When a child gets to about sixteen , there are decisions to be made about the future . Whether a child is going to college , where they are going to live . Whether they are returning home to live with family . If a child decides to "go home" then they lose all the basic package of payments and services available to them until their twenty first birthday . I made sure I got what I was entitled to . The leaving care grant . Yes there is such a payment . To accrue items for furnishing your new home . Should it be a flat /house , you are entitled to it . You are also entitled to D.H.S.S payments under the "leaving an institution clause". I got taken shopping with my then social worker to buy pots pans , the essentials . That was great fun . A child may also be entitled to ask for driving lessons . Make sure that you are not afraid to ask for these things .   I was going to return home , but I was tempted to living on my own . The care order that I was under,  I was told that it had been down graded to unsupervised contact with my family in 1991/92 as I had been caught sneaking around there on a few occasions . Yes if a child is as sharp as I am , they can use their wishes and feelings to state how they'd like things . They can be invited to all review meetings because by this time they will have been deemed Gillick Competent/ Fraser Competent as I was . This was from the age of twelve for me. Social Services can over rule you though on certain matters . 

By the time I had moved out of 210  in July 1993 , I had already been awarded a council flat in Radford as I was heavily pregnant with my then eldest son . I am not saying girls in foster care should deliberately get themselves pregnant , as the waiting lists now are very long . But Social Services are obliged to support you if that should happen . At no time what so ever was I encouraged to give up my bambino up for adoption . But it was reiterated that because of my legal status as a care leaver , that I would be monitered carefully . The pregnancy moved nicely . I gave birth in November 1993 . By this time I had started frequenting a place called Base 51 in Nottingham . I made full use of the facilities there as advised by my now Resttlement support workers . Yes care leavers get one of them too . There was young parents groups etc . My baby and I loved it . I am still friends with two of the other members . They know whom they are . So I won't tag them here . I also went to young parents groups in my area . I was totally emeshed in the young parent's group in my local area . 

Looking back on it all as a now nearly forty year old woman , I can see that there are great draw backs in the system . Care leavers are said to be more likely to become pregnant earlier , not leave school with good qualifications . Be involved with criminality . This is a very sad indictment of today' s youth . That many of the young adults in prisons , YOI's are care leavers . I have addressed this issue in copious meetings with City Council meetings to raise concerns of why this is happening often . What one of the social workers in that room nodding her head vigourously at everything I said was that SHE was one of my former social workers . You have to take care of the care leavers , essential with life skills training from their early teenage years to prepare them for independence from around fourteen years of age  . This is tantamount to neglect if this is not done . It is a national disgrace . That was agreed all around the room . I hope that I have made this as informative as possible . Suffice to say , my husband has been ordered to silence whilst I was writing this , as it is the first time I have spoken about this publicly. And it needs to be an accurate depiction of behind the scenes . https://www.gov.uk/leaving-foster-or-local-authority-care

Story
Introduction
My name is pronounced Melissa. Greek for Bee. I am thirty six , married and four children. I am many things. Including a writer, researcher of "different topics and genres of interest"

I only wish that I had known about blogs and self publishing a long time ago. Then I wouldn't have to wait for publishers. Or their approval. 

I am oppiniated, ordinary down to earth,  who says what a lot of people think , but do not dare. I can sometimes be tough, some people have said "determined and ruthless"  but actually a right old softy at heart. Well that is all y'all getting right about now.
Bragging rights
survived some pretty darned awful experiences as a child and young adult, but still here.
