I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go.

Avatar f tn Playing with poop is not typically something that results from ADHD. It is often seen in Reactive Attachment Disorder with children. RAD is often seen in adopted children, where the initial attachment with the biological mother has been disrupted, even if the child was very young or an infant when adopted.

Avatar f tn It kind of fades in and out, but every time it fades in, it gets more intense (louder and faster) and then abruptly stops and I’m left in a sort of deafening silence due to my efforts to try to pay real close attention in order to understand what the voices were so excited about, wishing I could hear it for just a little longer just to figure it out.
