Anyone still part of this Forum

Hi - New to this site

I see the last posts here are a couple of years ago and wondering if anyone still here and open to chatting. I am married to a RAD partner - it has been a long and difficult marriage but I am still trying and hopeful.

Right attitude towards RAD children

On the web I read some suggestions for adoptive parents (just curious, I am not planning to adopt a child), and they were discussing about attachment disorders, and problematic behaviours.

Where I get confused, it's that I don't like to abuse people, when I am in a powerful position. I hate it, and I don't act that way. But sometimes, abused children seem to expect your bad behaviour; they seem to believe that you are ...

Searching for a mother figure

I have a problem. For years I've been getting attached to older women. This always ends in disaster as the woman on the other end usually finds me too much.
At the moment it's a lady in my drama group. This has been going on nearly 3 years. As I'm afraid of saying and doing the wrong thing, I've found it hard to form a friendship. I communicate with her mostly on text and email. ...

My soulmate has RAD

Hello folks,

I hope I do not discourage anyone from commenting with such a long initial post.

I am hoping to interact with people to gain insight and support for someone who has RAD.

I only recently realized what this person suffers from. I described some behavior and a friend used a couple of terms that sent me Googling, Attachment Disorder and Displaced Anger. I found a website listing 12 characteristics of Attachment Disorder and ...

Literature - RAD


I'm looking to find more literature on topic of Reactive Attachment Disorder. I'd appreciate if someone would point me in proper direction.

I connect most of my psychological problems with a narcissistic parent, but occasionally wonder if abrupt separation from my parents when I was a year and a half (separation that was supposed to last for couple of months, but turned into years) had its share as well. I hardly remember first few ...
