So, we have recently learned that we will be living with RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder). It makes me feel so relieved to get a diagnosis and to know why I have been SOO exhausted. I had been feeling like a failure I felt like I wasn't getting ANYTHING done but I was so exhausted and mentally drained by the end of the day. I have felt like I am herding cats and running around in circles when all anyone wanted was a triangle.
We have been doing play therapy, I have even go to be the one in the room with the child. We have seen HUGE improvements, and also we have seen a lot of set backs, and "triggers." I am learning things I never knew I needed to know and sometimes I feel like I am driving through an obstacle course at 100 miles per hour with my eyes closed.
These kids are teaching me a lot and I am lucky to have them.
