My heart breaks for this young person who felt so compelled to hurt themselves versus facing ABA and for being scared to talk about it to his therapists.
I’m sorry this happened to you. I hope others do not have to go through this and if they do, they should tell their stories, because we really don’t know. We can only see what we see but it’s our job to know that you are your own person too and we need to meet you at your level!
I’m glad you found your voice!
