Adult RAD. COMFORT ITEMS.

Postby Mad » Sun Feb 05, 2017 5:56 pm

My 26 year old daughter with RAD hoards ziplock bags full of many things (food, pencils, batteries, etc etc) still and also buys pacifiers and sippy cups which she keeps in her pillow case or other places near her bed. She lives at home and is in the autism spectrum too. This is just something that has always been perplexing to me, but is nothing compared to the attachments she will have with certain females.

But addressing this is my dilemma. How and if. Usually when I find something, I just trash it and she never blinks an eye about it. But should I trash some of her comfort items?

I don't think its a good idea. I am also on the autism spectrum, with possible RAD, and I really hate it when someone touches my stuff. My mom used to try and go through my stuff when I was a teenager, because I was very secretive and didn't let her into my life, but it made me trust her even less, made me paranoid about leaving the house in case she did touch my stuff, and just made me push back against her even harder.

Let her keep the baby items, and Ziploc bags of pencils and stuff, its not hurting anyone.
