Ariana was born addicted to heroin and diagnosed with several medical issues , developmental ly delayed,pics and several other problems.She has had a therapist of one type or another five days a week almost her entire life.She is doing well because of the therapy ,but she either regresses or develops a new issue.She was potty trained for one and a half years and started having GI problems.Now she will not use the toilet for bowel movements.She holds it in all day,and when she gets home from school she starts going in her pants,she is terrified to sit on toilet but uses it for urinating.She wakes up with flat belly and by afternoon she looks like she ate a whole watermelon!She was hospitalized for blockage and tested.Dr. said they found nothing wrong and it is a behavior issue.She is seeing 3 behavior therapists and they have no answers.Is there anyone reading this who can help her?
