What Is It?
Schizoid is a personality disorder in which people avoid social situations and interactions with others. It usually develops in early adulthood, and people with this disorder typically don’t desire close relationships.
There are many symptoms of schizoid personality disorder, including preferring to be alone, lack of desire for close relationships, little to no desire for sexual relationships, difficulty expressing emotions, and other related symptoms.
Luckily, schizoid can be treated through therapy and medication. Typically, cognitive behavioral therapy or psychotherapy will help, along with antidepressants or mood stabilizers.
