Reactive Attachment Disorder

Posted by binner.kelsey @binnerkelsey, Mar 15, 2012

I am 18 years old and was recently diagnosed with this disorder. I have gone through intensive therapy but I was wondering if there are others on this site that are willing to share their experiences and chat with me about it so I don’t feel like I’m alone in this. Please feel free to friend me or just message me. Thank you so much.

While my dx is different, I do struggle with my own mind turning against me. I just wanted to give ya a cyber hug and check in on you.


My name is Jeanette,
I do not have this disorder, but were you abused as a child. This I would have in common with you and may be able to help or shed some insight. My email is Put mayo clinic in all caps so I will see it, as sometimes I may miss an email. I just looked up what you were diagnosed with and it stems from child abuse. If you would like to talk, please send me an email.
Sincerely and with love,


I am the guardian of a ten year old. We have been struggling with this since she moved in with me five years ago. On mothers day she broke three of my ribs. I am so frustrated that I am almost ready to just throw in the towel.


research what is called “the false self” – a life changing ah-ha moment for me, an answer to that nagging inner voice asking “what is wrong with me” !


Hey, I get that. I myself have RAD, and it was never properly treated. To be honest, I'm not really sure it has ever been treated properly. I may be female, but I actually get it.
