Unhappy Avoidant Personality Disorder - don`t know what to do - August 30th 2012, 05:14 PM

Hello. My name is Sylvia and I have been developing Avoidant Personality Disorder for a long time. I also suffer from OCD. I am self diagnosed, but I am not an attention seeker and I diagnosed myself after reading about psychiatry and these disorders for several months.
I have been feeling very bad recently and really wanted to talk to someone but instead I am sitting at home. It really got worse and I feel very broken and sad and I don`t know what to. Only my friend knows about my AvPD and OCD, but she lives in another district of the city and has a sort of psychological problem too and I don`t want to bother her. And the school year is going to start soon and I am afraid to go to school and see all these people who don`t like me . I wanted to feel a bit better by registering here and writing this post but I am afraid that I`ll be as sad as I used to be in the last school year . Thank you if anyone reads it, i know it is chaotic but I tried to do my best.

First of all, no matter how much research you do online, self-diagnosing isn't good. You need to see a mental health professional for a diagnosis, that's why they go to university for so long.

That being said, seeing a mental health professional would also get you the help needed for any mental health condition. Depending on conditions, treatments are therapy, and/or medication. Just another reason why you should seek a psychiatrist/psychologist/therapist.

Dare to be Different, to be Weird, to be a Freak.
Overall, Dare to be yourself.
