(Almost) Not Surprised


Back in late October I blogged about thinking K showed symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. Well, we just got her treatment plans from last month and this month in the mail today. Guess what’s in her diagnosis list? That along with Impulse-Control Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder (!), Generalized Anxiety Disorder and, get this, Reactive Attachment Disorder (!!). My guess on the RAD would be the disinhibited type.

Tomorrow is her 16th birthday. We’re going up with a cake and gifts and hope that when we leave she doesn’t backslide into a meltdown. She’s trying to earn coming home for Christmas so hopefully she’ll keep it together.
