Default Re: Difference between social anxiety and AvPD?

I was told I have Avpd and Iím also in the uk. Grrrrrrr. I suggest doing as much of your own research as possible. Misdiagnosis isnít uncommon over here

I had some sort of CBT which didnít help. It was more like bulldozer therapy though to be honest

If you have a good therapist, they can help. But if the therapy is time limited especially there is the issue of wanting to ďpleaseĒ the therapist and to tell them they are helping even if they arenít

Avpd is more ďall encompassingĒ than social anxiety.

I now feel like deleting this post ..
