Should I see my doctor?


Should I see my doctor?
I'm only 17 and I decided to take this quiz because I always just feel empty. I don't hug people or anything like that because I don't understand why anyone would want to. People around me I think get quite frustrated with me because I find it difficult to understand how they are feeling. I have anxiety which could possibly be influencing this but I don't know? Should I see my doctor?
In my opinion, yes, as they may be able to help with counselling etc. I'm not a fan of medication, but you may want to consider your options. You might also want to try an Autism Quotient test, to rule that out (or in.)

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.
