Looking for resources

Sorry I haven't been around...more on that at another time. I was keeping a promise.

But I am looking for a really good and dependable source of info on Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. I've read some stuff on the net but want to know if anyone has a really good source of info. Most go into the person with Munchausen's but I can't find much of anything on the treatment of the "Proxy".

And I think you all know why I'm looking, sadly.

Hugs to everyone and I'll be back soon to say hello and re-join the board.

gentle hugs...............Jenny

Thank you...that would be great! I did more research today but again, keep finding lots on the perpetrator but very little on the treatment of the "proxy" except to find that it is considered the ultimate in betrayal by most articles I've read. So....how do you recover? I think I'm probably a long way into it but it is something I can hardly even consider...it is so hideous an idea to me. Makes it very hard to even think your own mother could do that but that is the way it looks. Just makes me shiver!

Let me know what you find.

Big gentle Jenny hugs!

Thank you...that would be great. You can send them to me through my profile.

I see my T tomorrow and I anticipate a tough day but determined to get through it. I've read even more and the more I read the more it fits the profile of my mother. I suspect I even began to develop Munchausen myself(not the "by proxy type but the plain type). I used to hurt myself or make myself sick to get attention...wonder where I learned that???? The more I learn the healthier I'll be.

Giant gentle hugs for helping me to recover..............Jenny

I tried to send you a PM but you don't have the function enabled. If you could enable the function for a couple of days I will send you my regular email address. I don't want to have you do something you don't want to do(expose yourself to PM's) but I don't know of any other way except to post it here and that's not a good ides. Did that once...bad move on my part. Hmmmmmmmm.........

Our Cl Brenda has my email address and she might be able to send it to you.

Brenda...are you listening?????? It's okay with me if you can do it.

gentle hugs.......JennyB
