    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...

    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...

    Schizoid

    I think I may have schizoid personality disorder. It's not that I don't like people..I just have difficulty trusting them. Also, I wouldn't have problems making new friends as I think I am a charismatic woman, but I find making and KEEPING friends a lot of responsibility. I would...

    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...

    Story Of A Truthful Life

    Well, I am a Schizoid. My symptoms were shall I say, dormant until maybe 2 months after i turned 13. I had started out with Ideas, loose ideas, like the ideas that are pulled together to write a book or solve a mystery. That's what these ideas made me feel like, like I was...

    I Live With A Psychopath

    I've never been diagnosed with SPD, and my sister has never been diagnosed with psychopathy or ASPD (although she has been diagnosed once as bipolar and then later as borderline). But, being the logical, learning person I am, I've been studying and reading for the last four years...

    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...

    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 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...

    Very Interesting To Come Across This Name

    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...
