Default Re: Demonization of RAD

I don't know since I stopped using social media for the benefit of my own mental health.

However, I have noticed from experience that many people are ignorant about those who went through childhood trauma and have some type of mental illnesses. It isn't uncommon to be told things like "your parents tried as hard as they could" or "they loved you but didn't know how to show it" or other similar B.S like it's suddenly OK because they are our parents. Guess what: if you are a ****** parent who abuses or neglects your child than there is no excuse in the world that makes it OK.

So yeah, all of us abusers and trauma survivors get the same ****. It isn't exclusive to RAD and I have a tentative RAD diagnosis.
