Does anyone here feel scared to open themselves up to new experiences because past ones didn't go so well? I'm only 29 but have lived through a lot in my lifetime. I can't imagine what the future has in store for me, it's quite worrisome actually to think about. Cancer? Being cheated on? A loveless relationship? Something worse? Perhaps the whole... by treegirl

There is a guy at my volunteer place that I feel inferior to because he flirts with girls and get girl's phone numbers (I think at least) and for another reason (I am to scared to say). It also has to do with me not talking to girls in person and he is able to do it easily, plus my possible avpd and the fact that I don't talk to anybody male or... by Marc7

Hola, People use to have the impression that avoidants are sloopy people, careless of their higiene. My last psychologist put the stress on the importance of taking care of the image we project other people. It's not for narcissist reason but bc we have a part of our self-steem which is fed by the feedback other people provide us. That is,... by April72

Hey guys, I've never officially been diagnosed with anything (need to avoid mental health professionals lol) but fit overwhelming amounts of diagnostic criteria for both social anxiety for the past almost 10 years and even AVPD. I am much better at handling my anxiety... I mask it with disassociation/apathy. Probably not any healthier though! ... by sahxox

Have the avoidants an antiposting symdrom?:thinking: Come on, it's not so difficult to write a pile of nonsenses like me. Ask about your worries, your sufferings, your fears, your suscess, your failures, your wishes... Rant if you need it. by April72

Hey, guys!! I was wondering how much I would like to be a proffessional músician. Thing I neither can dream bc of my avoidance. The single idea of perform something in front of people sounds like impossible for me. With time and experience, I learnt to sing and dance and make any kind of role plays in front of my learners and some coworkers but... by April72

Yesterday, I was talking with a friend (an avoidant) about childhood. Her childhood, on the contrary to mine, was horrible. She knew soon what being an outsider meant. It's sad. Children shouldn't suffer for anything. I, on the contrary, was a normie. Yes, I can say that there was a part of my life when I was a normal person. The only... by April72

I hate making plans. I hate when people ask me to do something with them days in advance, even the day before, because it makes me feel trapped. What if the day comes and I don't feel like going? I hate bringing people along on trips because it means if I'm driving east and in the middle of it I decide I want to go north, I might not be... by Pacific_Loner

I read an article some time ago about the difference (so the main idea of the article was that there is a difference) between being shy and being an introvert. More than shy, I'd rather consider myself an introvert :I never get bored by myself, I enjoy my own company more than the company of others.Of course there are moments when i actually... by simona

It's only a kidding thread, but it could be good to rant a bit. If there would be an Armagedonn, who would you save? Bruce Willes doesn't count for obvious reasons, he is the one who has to make the sacrified and I have heard that he is a Psychopath. Discuss! :) by April72

Avoidants use to avoid looking for help and seek any kind of therapy or going to the psychiatrists bc they find very hard to trust someone enough to open them up to another person and tell about the most prívate stuff. I went to a therapist for the first time when I was in a desperate situation. I couldn't cope with my issues on my own. It... by April72

Hi everyone. I've just joined after finding out my diagnosis. I had to get a form from my therapist to help get money from my insurance and I found out from that. I could have asked my therapist if he had a diagnosis but never wanted to ask. It was interesting reading about this personality disorder and finding this forum and reading the comments,... by Izzie

I know the logical answer. Step out of my comfort zone, make a collected effort to keep in contact and hang out. But these actions feel like things I will have to relearn and force myself to do. How hard is it to text someone right? People ask me that alot. My answer is, incredibly hard for me most of the time. I don't want to intentionally... by Lamb

I feel like a crappy friend. Which makes me want to avoid people even more. I don'thave a lot of close friends, there are very few people that I feel comfortable with and those are usually people I feel like I'm neglecting. Thankfully though, those few I can go weeks without talking to them and we're still just as close. However, I have... by wrongdirection

I am trying to understand this "issue" a bit more...I think the person I tried to befriend who got "upset" with me for calling him a friend may have this. However, he has two close friends. So every site I see basically says people with APD have 0 close friends.... so is that true or can you have 1 or 2? how do you react to new people wanting to... by MNM322

What makes you forget that you're an avie There are few moments when I don't feel an avie. So, I try to live them with intensity. I really don't feel an avie when I'm singing a song that touches my heart, when a kid of mine gives me a hug or jokes with me and when people are sensitive enough to treat me as one of them and when I'm in nature... by April72

Well, maybe not right this instant but within a week or two weeks ;) I really want to go ice skating again. I did that quite a lot last winter and I was looking forward to the season starting again. But now it's here, the ice rinks have been opened for over a month and I still haven't been. I feel so stupid because I could do it last year, but... by Aylaa
