Default Re: Welcome to the Attachment Disorders forum

I believe the root cause of my problems is an attachment disorder. Without telling my whole story, it seems like each of my relationships was created to "confirm" that I can't trust men, that I should not trust them, entering into relationships with people who are in some way unavailable, usually emotionally unavailable, preoccupied with other things.

I hit rock bottom in this disorder when I entered into a relationship that was inappropriate and quite toxic to my life because the partner was unavailable in the worst possible way... he was married. This was the most personally devastating experience I've ever had and I am forced to look at my issues, after believing for so many years that I had it all figured out.

Since then I've been in therapy, and a strict diet of no sex or romantic partnerships while trying to understand how to better navigate that territory of love and attachment.

Anyway, grateful to have this forum. Thank you so much.
