I did not mean to eat the men that were assaulting me. However, I was just trying to defend myself so that I may no longer see or feel the sharp objects. I did not know any other way to react to this, for this hostility was new to me. After a while, no one else came so I decided to head home and inform my mother of what had happened.

When it comes to controversy of medicating a child that has EBD or ADHD it is huge. Parents do not like to speak about how this could affect their children by medication to help process their disability.
