Default Re: Difference between social anxiety and AvPD?

A person Diagnosed with AvPD as their primary/core dx will have SA as a symptom.
A person Diagnosed with SA again as their primary dx wont have AvPD
The difference is one is a Personality disorder and the other is a triggered response.


You are yourself until triggered with SA
We're not....we're controlled by a personality disorder.
We behave according to these internal fixed instructions that have been moulding and shaping us since early childhood.
A person with SA has their own mind their own choices.
We're micro managing internally 24/7, our choices aren't our own.
