I'm a 29 year old with Schizoid Personality Disorder. Everything I've read said there is no real fix for my condition, medicine and therapy are generally ineffective. Not that I could afford either anyway. I've been hanging on for years, just waiting for something to get better, and every year that hope dims a little bit more. Everything I've ever tried to do on my own has turned out badly. Any party I've ever tried to throw people no show, entertainment cancels, cable goes out, something. Every time I try to cook, something that use to bring me pleasure, something inevitably goes wrong and just leaves me feeling even worse. If I have no interest in friendship or dating, or really anything that people usually want out of life (riches, travel, power, whatever) whats the point in getting up everyday? All I'm doing is subjecting myself to more pain and draining my parents retirement accounts because I'm incapable of holding. I think if I can ever come up with a good way to make my mom realize its not her fault, I'll be gone tomorrow, its the only thing holding me back. Is there anyone else with Schizoid here who can recommend some self-help or coping techniques?
