    With a lack of warmth

    and open communication in my formative years, I guess the way I coped when I was a child was to look for solace in books I've read, games I've played, shows I've watched, then taking all of those together into a comfortable fantasy world for myself. I seem to have a difficult...

    What Helps?

    I always wondered why I never liked being around people, even my own family.  I learned about SPD while researching some of the thoughts I've been having and it fit me perfectly.  I'm kind of hesitant to go to the Dr about it because I just don't know if I want to go over...

    I seem to be an unusual variation that is romantically inclined. I have seen many variables in the various schizoids I have read about, and just about every site that tries to describe a schizoid seems to paint a different picture, though some traits are definitely more common...

    Very Interesting To Come Across This Name

    I came across this name while looking in the social awkwardness forums. I have been socially awkward since a child/early teens. I remember when my parents used to go on holiday I used to stay at home on my own and I loved it. I do find having friends or people around me quite...

    I "love"d It

    Last year, I knew I was schizoid. Oh yeah. I had almost every symptom and I knew it. And you know what? I really liked it. "Loved" it. I liked the person I was--cold, distant, unmotivated, etc etc--and wanted to stay that way. Not too long after, I was diagnosed with...

    Like The Month

    We never seek help. I've never been diagnosed, but I'm smart enough to figure it out on my own. Hence the disorder... Push people away because you don't need them, and they don't need you. So you're alone; now what? **********, meditate. Write. Music. Think, appreciate. My self...

    I Am Who I Am...and Always Have Been.

    I don't think there is any shame in being a schizoid personality. I wouldn't even call it a disorder. I am very funny when it crowds, but I prefer my solitude, my wonderful solitude. It gives me such peace. I could spend months without human contact and still not be bored. I...

    Well here it goes. It started about a year ago.

    I don't know but it just happened overnight. Since then I can't care about things, that friends are just acquaintances for me and I literally won't mind if you punch me in the face. I realized this when me and my closest friend had this huge fight (well I guess for him it was a...

    I Live With A Psychopath

    What Do You Think?

    I know I might have it, but at the same time I don't see anything wrong with the way I live. Adults at my school are always concerned with my lack of socialization, and how I always seem to choose solitary things, but I don't see the problem. I'm satisfied with my life and myself...

    Are These Shizoid Behaviours/Signs?

    I have been diagnosed with BPD, AvPD, DPD, StPD, and PPD. I have just ended group therapy which lasted 9 months. During the treatment my therapists said I was very withdrawn and had little interest in what others were talking about. They said I was very detached and aloof, and...

    Maybe I'm A Schizoid?

    I took an online quiz for personality disorders, and it said I have a high likelihood of schizoid PD. I lack motivation, have a small range of emotion, am aloof, unaffected by praise or criticism, and see societal norms as nonsensical and damaging. I feel others think I behave...

    People just don't understand borderlines, it's really irritating. If you're against how we want to feel of course we'll get angry. It's as simple as that.
