Hi,

I've signed up to this forum to seek some advise really... I'm sorry if I ramble on, but this is the first time I have expressed ANY of my thoughts to anything other than my own head!

Basically I just feel I am not right somewhere.

The thing that has made me really think about this is my "fear" of being alone with someone else. I dont know if I can call it fear, or just panic/dislike?... I dont like being on my own with a person- if there is a group of us, i'm ok but I just avoid as much as possible being alone with just 1 person. I dont know what it is im afraid of?... What to talk about maybe? Maybe a fear of not being able to stay interesting? I am often described as a bit funny/weird, as my personality and sense of humour is not like most peoples. But with my boyfriend i'm different- I will do anything to be alone with him (although this doesn't happen often).

I probably sound like I am being stupid, but I just feel that my "fears" are getting worse.

Also, I went to the doctors once, as I was feeling very down sometimes. I would just have random episodes where I would just think of anything bad as if to make myself upset... He tried to say I was depressed, and wanted to issue me with some antidepressants, but i'm sure I dont have depression as I dont have these feelings all the time.

Sorry to go on, there are niggly little things aswell as this, but these are my main concerns. I know I dont explain things very well, sorry.

I just wondered if anyone else has anything similar, and whether it is worth me going to a doctor or will I just be turned away saying i'm being silly? :unsure:

Thanks xxx

I'm posting in this part of the forum as I have read on the internet about a thing called Avoidant Personality Disorder.

Although I may not be 100% of the characteristics, I feel it may be a mild case. I dont want to self diagnose, as this could force me into thinking I am but I am a little worried.

Thanks.
