I agree that we can all have traits of personality disorders but ... I don't know ... it seems to me that the step from just having some traits and it being a disorder is a bit too blurry.

Pdoc used to say that I was avoidant ... which I do agree with in that I do have many of those thoughts ... but hey, I do work, I talk on the phone, talk in public and such ... so it doesn't seem to me that its a huge disorder.

Also it seems to me that they change alot. Last time I saw the pdoc, I told her how I don't seem to miss people, that I can go years without talking to my parents and it doesn't bother me ... I just don't miss them ... that it made me feel as though I was somehow defective ... that I don't have that part of the brain that makes you want the companionship of people and taht I prefered being alon.

Well lo and behold ... now I'm Avoidant AND "possibly" schizoid ...

Plus I don't like the stigma around them ... the way it is said to be "maladaptive", "pervasive" and such ...
