Please Note: This is the Avoidant Personality Disorder forum. It is meant for support for people who have this diagnosis, or to learn more about this disorder. It is NOT for talking about "avoidance" in a general way; please use the Relationships & Communication forum instead.
My Support Forums is the online community that was originally begun as the Psych Central Forums in 2001. It now runs as an independent community, overseen by a group of dedicated, caring volunteers from around the world.
