    Hi everyone. I'm amanda. I'm the momma to a little girl who was just diagnosed with ODD. She's a sweetheart when she's in a good mood but when she's having a bad day you would think that she's possesed. She's been seeing a counseler for play therapy once a week. She was diagnosed last week as having Odd by the counseler.
    My favoriate motto when she's having a bad day is "I could very well loose my mind today"

    Hi there and welcome :D.
    ODD is kind of a diagnosis. that doesn't usually stand alone. Can you explain her behavior to us in more detail? Any delays, like speech, sensory issues, or quirks? Do you or her bio. dad have any psychiatric issues on the family tree? In my experience counselors aren't very good diagnosticians.

    Hi Amanda and welcome.

    We could probably be of better help to you if we know more. Midwestmom's questions are a good starting point.

    Hope you find lots of good help here.
