I donít know.. maybe the psychologist and the shrink misdiagnosed me for their own agenda. They couldnít help, didnít want to help. They really only ďhelpedĒ ďsimpleĒ anxiety, depression etc and people who made ďsignificantĒ change on their schedule. . It is not easy to access good help in this forest..

I suspect that if you met me in real life you would think Iím avoidant. But I have no investment in that diagnosis. I donít define myself by any diagnosis. I didnít want any diagnosis when I went into therapy....but I was given one anyway. In some ways Iíve become less avoidant over the years, and in some ways more.

As a child I was always the most withdrawn, shy, anxious, in the class, by far.

Iím not sure if youíre saying you think I am not avoidant despite the diagnosis, if so, Iím sure that psychologist would not be happy. He was very proud of his skills and of being a good diagnostician. I think he is NPD..


And btw I donít feel comfortable posting usually, other than hugs, but I do it anyway

At least I donít have to spend hours shaving off my fur as I do if I venture out of my cave...

Iíve also got to know a few really good people online.. Iíd almost despaired about the bears in this corner of the forest, aside from Papa Bear.. and they always always judged and misjudged me. They would certainly say Iím ďtoo quietĒ... too quiet for what? Idiots...

I have built up some sort of self esteem over the years, maybe.. so maybe that disqualifies me from being Avpd. In which case Iím very happy... Iíve defied the medics..and the abusive family of origin.
