    Death is the only thing I could think of.

    I've been seriously depressed, suicidal to the point of overdosing, and diagnosed bipolar, ontop of that I'm currently disabled with use of only one arm and I am doing everything to keep DD with me. I have reached out to every organisation there is and am getting support for both of us, I have my mum who comes and helps around the house and DP who also does what he can. I'm involved with DOCS but in a good way and I will never resort to giving up my precious DD to better myself, she is my strength and without her by my side I'd lose my fight, so we do it together.

    I am her mother, I brought her into this world and she will never be pushed aside for my own needs, whatever they may be, instead I use her as my reminder of why I MUST continue to fight this terribly hard fight I have been through this year.

    The most I will accept is someone taking her overnight or my mum taking her to the library each week as a form of assistance. Other than that, no one will separate us!

    Sorry for not being clear in my OP.

    Sending one of/ all of your children away to live with a friend/relative for an indefinite period of time.

    Well as someone who deals with this stuff daily.. I can rattle off all the reasons that it happens. How it happens to people who never thought it would happen to them, how good parents arent immune... I think the main point is for me to lose custody or Give up custody of my children.. my children would be unsafe with me or inadequately cared for by me at that time, and better off somewhere else. I am thankful every day for my sanity, for the support network around me and for the fact that so far I have coped with everything life has thrown at me. I would always fight for my children.. but I am very aware that many people are unable to fight to keep their family in tact
    And that crap happens that you can never predict.

    Yep, agreed.

    I could never have forseen becoming so physically unwell. Even though I was mentally well, my physical limitations were not something I could 'push through' without making myself even sicker and sicker.... it can happen to anyone.

    I really can't put into words how grateful I am that not a day passed for me where I wasn't able to be Mum to my children, even though it was in a more limited capacity for a while there.

    Without the assistance I received from family and my husband, it could have been very different. I've thought about it a lot and it's frightening.

    I am so glad to be almost well again. I really can't put into words how much it hurt even having my capacity to be the mother I wanted to be limited. And that was still while living with my children and being involved where I could. That was much more upsetting for me than the fact that I was sick.

    It's honestly heart wrenching stuff and my heart breaks for the mums and dads out there who might be reading this and not have been as lucky as me.

    If I presented a danger to my DD in anyway, I would (like to think that I would have the presence of mind to) leave her to someone better equipped to care for her.

    What would I do to get her back? Move mountains.

    I don't know.... I can see how it might seem insensitive, but I think it's really important to discuss.
