I have plenty of interesting papers on the topic of alexithymia, but I cannot share links because they are from journals without open access. Is it possible for the forum to enable the options of attachments, so I can upload them?

If anyone can find links to new scholarly articles or studies, it would be great if you could share.
I'm new to all of this, but I have found some interesting studies and articles on the matter, though some are rather long. Not all are necessarily "scientific papers" but seem appropriate to put here.

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.
