Meds regimes don't conform to the social dynamic that seems to trigger avoidant reactions. Some particularly good advice at a moment when I'm about turn toward the door -- or some fricking time off when I ask for it instead of a boss consciously practicing exposure therapy on me -- that might help.

I don't carry the APD diagnosis, but it would probably fit. My current diagnosis is something like major depression in partial remission, this I see as the necessary code for the insurance company. I think my pdoc likes to view me as something along the bipolar spectrum. I don't know. I just know that the bulk of my complaints have been about the tremendous amount of anxiety I face (generally at work). The description of APD fits me well though. My struggle in large part is against my default position- avoidance.
funny, I was just talking to my pdoc today about how I need to skip some of my klonopin on days that I'm not so exposed to the overstimulation of life outside my home.
I've been reading this book a bit lately... "The Highly Sensitive Person"
nice to meet you :-)
