Today I talk about Avoidant Personality Disorder. It’s pretty much just like what it sounds like. We will avoid many situations for fear of embarrassing ourselves or that they will not like us. This can affect our work life, personal life and even just our ability to be out in any social situation. There is a high co-morbidity rate with Agoraphobia because we often don’t like to leave our homes for fear of being embarrassed or even just disliked by someone. This can tie so closely with many other anxiety disorders as well as our eating disorders or self-harm struggles, so it is very important that a professional properly diagnosis us.
Every Tuesday & Friday I post a journal prompt to help keep you motivated and working on yourself!
