Doctors have diagnosed me with RAD, ADHD, Bi-polar, Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. With RAD, I have a hard time making friends; I’m either non-social or too clingy. My biological mom was an alcoholic. I was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Pierre Robins Syndrome (which affects my speech) and a cleft pallet (hole in the top of my mouth). (more…)
