Anxiety etc., can cause severe physical issues (gastric, chest pain, muscle pain, etc) but no doctor should dismiss any physical symptoms as mental health related without proper testing. This is highly unprofessional and borderline criminal offense IMHO. I've had issues clearly related to anxiety bu...

I usually drink tea at night: with no caffeine before I go bed. Sleepy time tea. It puts my mind at ease. I wish it was that easy for me. Even tranqs don't always help to put my mind at ease. Yup. "mixed states"or "mixed episodes" or something similiar. I've got that too. I can ...

I was diagnosed with GAD, Severe Depression and Schizoid Personality disorder about 10 years ago after undergoing an expanded set of psychological testing. Until then the doc treated me just for GAD and depression but nothing clearly works. Henever agreed with the Shizoid part of the diagnosis. My d...

I'm not autistic just depressed and hate this planet and I feel like the world is some kind of sick joke. Life is s**t, politics are s**t, economy is s**t, education is s**t, medical care is s**t, 1% of the population is literally sucking the lives out of the rest of us. How is this democracy even? ...

Have you deleted your last post? I saw it and I wanted to comment but it's gone. From what I was told, people with SPD don't necessarily have intense special interests, unlike people with AS. Presence or absence of intense special interests and patterns of repetitive behavior is not part of SPD diag...

That is a coincidence indeed. I have to tell you that, although this diagnosis is a bit troubling, I feel better finally from having a diagnosis backed by some testing. I felt lost for a long time and I felt I wasn't getting anywhere and I had major crisis in November. I'd advise that, besides talki...

Sorry, there are two types, not three: Overt Schizoid - this is the type that doesn't need social interactions Covert Schizoid - this is the type that needs love and affection and gets lonely Although I have some symptoms from both types :? See Wikipedia, they have a table with symptoms for both typ...

There are three types of schizoids, I was told. One type doesn't require relationships and has no need for friendship and love; and functions best when he/she is alone and self-dependent. There is focus on "self-dependent" and "enjoying activities alone". This type accepts marriage, for example, tha...

Hi all, I've posted some questions back in November in the Autism section about Asperger's since I suspected AS. However, after doing my testing they said it's Schizoid Personality Disorder. They ruled out Asperger's because I scored high above average on the Executive Function tests and I'm clearly...

I also prefer writing because it gives me more time to prepare my replies and I can do this in a quiet environment. I don't do well in verbal conversations because I'm slower than others or get easily overwhelmed or even overloaded. Listening to people and speaking burns me out.

Sensory overload is triggered by all and any senses and that means anything aural whether it's random noise, kids screaming, dogs barking or speech. Whether it's just ambient sounds or spoken word conveying messages it's all "information" that your brain has to process.

Bottom line: If somebody TELLS you to stop doing whatever it is you are doing, and you don't, you are bullying. Period. Intent, at that point, has nothing to do with it. EDIT: "No means no" applies to a lot more than just rape. I respectfully disagree. That's too broad and doesn't take circumstance...

Bullying is intentional, continued harassment. So without intent it could simply be ill manners or just someone in a bad mood? Frances Yes, I would say so. Bullying is intentional IMHO, there is a clear purpose to humiliate and hurt someone. So yes, if there is no intent the person may just be a je...
