Jodi-Ann Whitelock started this petition to Health Care Facilities

I am a single mom who is trying to get well so I can take care of my children and myself. I just tried going to my first doctor's appointment in two years and because I had my son with me I was turned away. I have suffered everything from mental illness, to physical illness, abuse and substance abuse. Only God keeps me. However, it seems like no one cares. I really needed this visit, I felt it would change the trajectory of my life. It's hard raising three children without their biological father. Sometimes I feel they need a better mother, one that didn't make the mistakes I made and one that isn't clinging on by her fingernails for life. I always thought I was neglectful towards my health and wellness but the truth is something I always knew, there is no empathy or help for single moms. I was told that children weren't allowed in and if I wanted to reschedule. And I said I am a single mom and if I reschedule I would still have my son with me. I was met with indifference, I walked back to the parking lot with my dignity then I broke down in tears in the car. What's the point. It is what it is. I'm not sure if anyone has ever felt this way, I'm just here to say your not alone.
