Sometimes I get a feeling that I get a lot of thoughts/emotions that come and go unexpressed. But then again, maybe not. I have been diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia and I seem to have no trouble expressing my paranoid thoughts to my social worker and psychiatrist. But then again, I feel like I have a lot of suppressed emotion. I'm confused with myself... :(

Alexithymia can be one of the “negative” symptoms of schizophrenia.

True. Thanks for the clarification. It's my Schizophrenia; not Autism.
