New to Alexithymia

Posted , 2 users are following.

I recently discovered that I may have Alexithymia through an online test. Is it possible to change? My partner gets angry & upset with me. I really want to improve but I think it will take time. Has anyone got better or is it just about pretending (assuming it’s possible to do that long term). Thank you for any help.

    Hi I think the first thing to do is see a counsellor and get a proper diagnosis.  You can't rely totally on an online test for this.

    I never knew there was such a thing as Alexithymia but have realised this also describes me as well.  I can't deal with emotionally close relationships and I have never been married or even lived with a partner.  I am going to look for that test now and do it myself. I hope you find some answers.  x
