I don't bloody the ###$ feel avoidant at all.
Sure I avoid talking to people, but that's just cuase I hate it.

Why should I care about others ######6 wimps.

I feel way more borderline, and one time I wanna kms the other I have sadistic urges.

Is it possible the your symptoms have been interpreted wrongly? Without elaborating on the "why", saying you avoid people because you hate it would also not be unusual for someone with AvPD. Yours sounds more like a can't be bothered/don't care, where someone with AvPD's reason would be because it's too mentally exhausting and they're very wary of being rejected by others.

It also sounds like you have schizoid tendencies as well. Generally, schizoids also avoid socializing, but not because of anxiety but because they don't care (although there might be an unconscious fear underlying this indifference). People who are depressed also tend to avoid socializing.

Anyway, it may not be clear what the right label is, since various mental conditions overlap.
