I was reading different posts on this forum and came across the avoidant personality disorder and didn't know what it was. So I googled it and it's basically the story of my life. Not sure where to take it from here but it is so good to put a name to this feeling of just not being quite right. I've watched a few YouTube videos but there doesn't seem to be much research out there about this disorder. Have you tried any therapies? Self help? I don't think medication would help with this one... PS. Now I know that its possible to feel ridiculously relieved and also very scared at the same time. Go me!
