Default Loving someone with RAD

I deeply love someone with RAD. I just realized her behavior fits this perfectly. I'd like to help her out. She has been dangerous as she exerted control over me but the way she orchestrated it was also genius. This is all new to me. After describing her behavior a friend identified it with Attachment Disorder. I now have something concrete to research.

As I said, I deeply love this person. I feel I can help her in some way. I could very well fit a model vulnerable to manipulation by someone with this condition. I am an empath. I know she needs to feel in control so I am working at retaining control of my life while supporting the illusion that she controls it. I have a lot of love for her which I have demonstrated during the last 7 months. I would be surprised if anyone else had stuck with this after what she has dished out to me. Along with love I care about her welfare. There is also an intense connection with empathy and vivid telepathy. I imagine all of this can be advantageous while assisting with her healing.

Hello V: I noticed this is your first post here on PC. So... welcome to PsychCentral! I hope you find PC to be of benefit.

Another forum, here on PC, that may be of interest to you would be the relationships & communication forum. Here's a link:

I'm sorry I don't know anything about this. And I couldn't find much of anything on RAD in PsychCentral's archives. However here's a link to the one article I did find:

"Like vanishing dew, / a passing apparition / or the sudden flash / of lightening-- already gone-- / thus should one regard oneself." Ikkyū Sōjun (13941481), Japan.

I would not hesitate to ask her to get into therapy if her condition (which may be Reactive Attachment Disorder or completely something else, like an immunological disorder) is affecting people around her.
