Can you help?
I'm 17 and I've recently noticed how much my friends, family, and even boyfriend(now ex) complain about how distant and non appreciative of their emotions I am. It's been botherning me for a while now that I can't really relate to how they're feeling so I did some research and I came across this site. I took the test and I got a 151. I know it's not a dead set diagnosis but it has me curious. How do I begin to explain to my mom and my friends that this might be why I'm a "bitchy" person as they call it? It's been very very frustrating because it's not like I haven't tried to feel the way they do but it just doesn't work.

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.
