What you said is very relateable.
I am not Schizoid because I get lonely but I think its similar to social anxiety it sounds horrible we all are suffering and the thing we all have in common is our voices are ignored (oh just get over it) I wish that was the case my social anxiety is so bad I cant even post on a forum without doubting myself... I read some of the symptoms of schizoid and I am sorry you are going through that
Schizoids get lonely too. I read it either in the article I linked or in Nancy Macwilliams' book I was talking about. I don't remember what was written exactly, but the point is we're not the stones. Everyone has that side in them. Schizoids are not an exception. We're human breed
It can look like we are from the outside though and some schizoid attributes (but not all of them) can be interpreted in this way (i.e. being like a stone).
Thank you for your compassion!
I used to feel like this too, but I don't care now. Even with my English etc. This is probably due to my SPD again. I'm used to people constantly hating me and ignoring me from like middle school if not earlier. But still, SA is extreme in my case too. It just takes different forms, I guess...
You shouldn't feel this way. People post here and I'm sure you can find tons of posts you can strongly relate to. That can be very helpful with posting and in general.
