Default How do you know if you have this?

I had no connection to anyone as a child - my dad was busy, my mom didn't want a girl, then they were divorced, and my dad was absent, mom still didn't want a girl, and so on. There was all kinds of abuse as well. I expect I probably have some sort of attachment issues, but it's not something I've thought about.
As a parent, I know what the criteria are for a child with attachment issues, but hadn't considered what it would look like in an adult.
Thanks in advance to any insight anyone can offer.

Thank you! it's always fun to find more ways in which I am messed up, LOL! This is apparently one of them. I appreciate the resource about changing attachment styles - I took the quiz and I'm fearful-avoidant in the nth degree, lol.
