I just wrote out a huge life story, it took a while. computer issues. I'm not retyping it.
Difficulties fitting in
moved around a lot
suspected trauma as a child(a specialist in autism has said)
difficulties in relationships
Difficulties with emotions and others emotions.
I don't think and feel the same way others expect me too
substance abuse (though all of this was as been a constant before the cocaine) ( substance abuse was only a factor for about 8 months 2 years ago)
I have a 7-month-old son
two suicide attempts.
addiction to things not just illicit substances
I don't know what I want from this, I don't know what to write... I don't know much right now.
I guess I just want answers and more importantly I want someone to ask the right questions.
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.
