I am new and not savy at all regarding disorders, I don't even know what all of the abbreviations mean, so please be patient with me. I don't know if I should be posting here, but I don't know who to ask. I am trying to figure out if my daughter has a disorder or if she is just a difficult child. She is almost 15, but has had some odd behaviors since she was little...or at least I thought they were odd, but not overwhelming. so when I took her to a doctor. as a toddler they wouldn't really do anything about it. At the onset of puberty, she seems like she may have some Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), last year she tried vommiting to avoid gaining weight, she pierced her bellybutton alone in her room, I have seen some possible cuts on her, but not sure about that one. She argues about everything. She started lying when she was a tot and it wasn't even about important things to stay out of trouble(yes we discussed it, punished, disciplined you name it we tried it). She had a very real imaginary friend.I remember making a comment to a friend one time when she was about 8 that it seems almost like she doesn't have a conscience. Since she has been about 14 she doesn't sleep at night much. She home schools so it is not too big of a deal. She seems to ahve trouble getting the "main idea" or even understanding what she read when she reads and struggles with math and she still hasn't mastered the multiplication tables of 6,7,8. She can sleep for 12 hours at a time.She does have friends, she is social. I fear I have already written way more than I should, but I am just so perplexed. I am kind of scared to post this...these behaviors don't all happen at once, but when you add them all up and look at them together it sure seems like alot.
