142 on the Questionnaire and I'm Only 17


142 on the Questionnaire and I'm Only 17
I've had this issue for years. It used to be just regarding romance and my emotions towards others, but now it's about pretty much everything. My dad also had this problem. He's a very unexpressive person. My mother, however, is extremely expressive. Which makes me a weird combination of highly self-expressive and eccentric but unable to describe any of it with words or even identify it for myself.
maybe you are a person who manages to identify and express yourself sometimes, but not as good as people without alexithymia traits at all, which would not exclude yourself from having alexithymia I guess.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personal trait which affects roughly 10% of the population.

Alexithymia describes the difficulty of people to perceive and describe emotions of others and themselves. Most persons concerned are not aware about this deficit and usually they are just recognizing it in contact with others, especially close friends, within their family or their partner.

These pages should deliver additional information about Alexithymia and offer information for affected persons, relatives and generally interested people.
