AvPD, SAD, lack of eye contact, and fear of being touched? by Ashley_kate23 on Wed Sep 11, 2013 2:23 am
I was diagnosed with AvPD and SAD and I was wondering if anyone has a horrible problem with eye contact and being touched?
I have never been able to make eye contact unless I absolutely felt like it was necessary so that I didn't seem rude.
I can't make eye contact with my dad no matter what and I can barely make eye contact with my mom.

I also have a hard time dealing with being touched. When someone accidentally touches me, I literally cringe. I then feel like I need to go wash whatever part they touched me. I can't be touched by my dad because it just feels horrible! If he touches me, I feel like I'm going to cry. I'm okay with my mom touching me SOMETIMES, but she doesn't want to touch me because she has issues of her own.
I just hate being touched so much. Hugs and hand shaking are horrifying for me.
I want to get over this, but at the same time I just really don't want to ever be touched.

I unfriended my depressed friend. She was very demanding and refused to accept criticisms, but she tried to be a friend, and that's what makes me feel guilty. She has depression and anxiety, but I'm not...

Like anyone else, you are free to choose whom you want to befriend or not. For whatever reasons, it's your freedom to do that. Don't beat yourself up for it.

An old blog post- but I think a lot of guys who are gay or bi, somehow think things will change with marriage, and.... it doesn't, unfortunately. I think unless an agreement can be made, and we're open...

Re: help me? by Snaga on Fri May 27, 2016 6:57 pm
This isn't the proper place to ask for advice, you should think about posting in forum:

Please post in there, and you'll get folks to respond to you much more...
