Who am I

Postby Buffysummers » Fri Oct 12, 2018 8:25 am

Hi all,

I was gonna read through all the posts but then I didnt care enough. Sorry.
Just looking for some guidance.
A bit of background:
1. My majors were Physics and Maths because I liked the subjects and the people that did them were not too annoying so I liked that
2. I'm female and married and I like the guy a lot, but mainly coz he doesnt pester me too much and we have very separate lives.
3. I hate intimacy and sex coz its boring and pointless.
4. I have parents and 4 siblings most of who live within a 15 minute drive of me but I never see them. They are ok but I just dont really find I get much out of meeting with them when I do see them.
5. I work full time but I've never had lunch in the lunch room before because I dont really want to sit there and listen to people talk about their lives as i dont really care too much about them.
6. I have my own office and if I didnt I'd probably quit or have to go sit in the toilet for the majority of the day.
7. I laugh at jokes or stories because its easier just to pretend to laugh or be interested and then move on with your day but honestly I dont find the jokes funny at all.
8. I am child and animal free by choice coz I couldnt think of anything worse than having to care and look after them.
9. I have no friends by choice and I like to keep it that way. I dont really like going out to socialise because most of the time I'm just so bored of the conversation and actually, I dont even care about it.
10. I got the DSMV and started reading through it out of interest because I figured that my life (although feels normal to me) is VERY DIFFERENT to other people lives. I thought I had Autism for a long time but I have no trouble in reading peoples cues and emotions. I can read emotions and cues just fine, its just that I dont actually care about them. I came across the SPD description and I've never read something I identified so strongly with.
11. I am not depressed or anxious. Actually I get anxious when I'm forced to be around other people but other than that not.
12. Just curious to see what someone that read this mail thinks. To be honest I expect no one will read this and thats fine. Not even sure why I'm still typing away haha. OK.
13. I dont care to much about getting a diagnosis as I'd probably not engage it treatment if it were suggested.
Thats all. Have a great weekend. I'll be at home staring at a wall as usual.

Protip: don't ask The Internet that question, because it might give you an answer.
Is this now?

Yeah, that description more or less matches the definition. If you're interested in reading more you can check out "Personality Disorders in Modern Life" by Theodore Millon, it's fairly informative. You might be able to get it via an interlibrary loan or something; obviously if you find a pdf of it online, you should report it to the proper authorities.

What are you looking for guidance about? Bored?
