What is avoidant personality disorder?
Avoidant personality disorder is a life-long pattern of extreme social anxiety and shyness. Sufferers experience persistent feelings of inadequacy, lack of self-confidence, inferiority and lack of self-worth and have a tense and anxious demeanour. They tend to be incredibly sensitive - particularly to rejection - and consider themselves to be incapable of relating to others and being socially successful.
I am not too sure where I go from here. I may have to see a Doctor and look into being referred to a psychologist. I have studied this condition extensively, and I exhibit all of the symptoms.
I ask for your prayers and forgiveness. Many of the pathetic things I have posted on this forum have probably been heavily influenced by this disorder and hope you can forgive me.
May you all be given Divine help with your own Crosses.
