Anyone else developed an avoidant personality disorder? I have never been officially diagnozed, but I'm convinced that's what's wrong. I always knew I had social anxiety, but I also knew there was more to it than that. I suspect that shame lies at the heart of all this, and that the shame feeds the avoidance while the avoidance feeds the shame. This has been going on since I was seven or eight.
