Purpose of this blog
R.A.D Momma – Reactive Attachment Disorder
The first thing I would like to start with saying is, THIS IS NOT YOU! Hear that momma, THIS IS NOT YOU! You are not overreacting, you are not crazy, you are NOT a bad, Mom and you are NOT alone.
My prayer is that maybe by me telling our story that it may help another, Mom, Dad, Grandparent, or the Family that is affected by this disorder. It can feel very lonely on all sides of it, the Child that suffers from the disorder and the ones that love them the most.
I would like to use this blog to not only share our story but for others to share theirs, also to put as much knowledge that I can out there for anyone that feels like; what’s next?! I am just a regular Mom that has done a lot of research and has read a lot of books on this unique disorder. I find the more I can learn the more I start to feel not so alone, not so overwhelmed.
If this sounds like you, please share all your stories and knowledge too. I truly believe that it takes a village. I find it is comforting when you know there are other people out there feeling and struggling with the same challenges.
I hope you all find peace and comfort.
