"We are a peculiar people; often others don't understand us.                                                       Our avoidant personalities cause others to wonder or to judge....    but likely it is that as people with this disorder....     we are particularly sensitive to what our environment contains.                                                        Hyper-vigilance and mistrust often accompany our thoughts and though we may yearn in our souls for friendships...they often elude us.                                                                   This leads to isolation for fear of rejection and lack of acceptance.                                                                      We welcome you here with open arms and understand how you feel" .......
