Interesting Reading For Those With Disconnected/asexual/emotionally Paralyzed Spouses

I saw my therapist yesterday, and after relating more stories about my STBX's behavior when he was packing his stuff last week (I hadn't seen him in 6 months), his lack of insight into his own emotions/behavior, his confusion/inability to accept reality or to understand that his life is a consequence of his own choices, his emotional paralysis, etc etc, she told me she is certain he has Schizoid Personality Disorder. I looked it up, and it fits in lots of ways. Many of you who have read my stories about him and his Passive Aggression might be interested in this. It could fit your spouse too...

Let me know what you think!

Interesting...I did find some similarities in my situation although I don't think it's an exact description. Thanks for sharing.

wow. that seems to fit my STBX as well. I only thought it was Passive Aggressive, but this might be more plausible.

I'm also wondering if my STBX isn't also Avoidant Personality:

My two cents on this - once you call time of death, heck even before, when you decide to move on, forget about figurinng your stbx out. The why does not matter and its time to clear out the headspace and heartspace the stbx is taking up.

She volunteered the info---and I thought it might be interesting for someone here. But my first thought was, "Thank god I don't have to care what's wrong with him anymore!" It feels so good to have moved forward...

Moving forward definitely feels good and its freeing to have a huge burden lifted from off your mind because you need not worry over what's going on in your stbx's head.

Exactly. I feel a lot of compassion for him, but that's it. Not my problem!
