Hey, this is in my mind, I ask to myself if it has a cure
Topic: Someone cured of the Alexi
A few more details might be appreciated by some of the users here.
Just wanna know if it has how to and appreciate the details
As stated elsewhere, it is generally accepted that alexithymia is developed via two routes - one, from emotional damage often early in life and two, from a neurological difference. Therapists have told me that for type one, "recovery" from it is indeed possible using standard therapeutic techniques, perhaps those that address abuse, trauma, and emotional problems. A therapist trained in these areas may be helpful to allow this type to overcome their emotional inabilities.
For the second type however I was told there is no changing the base deficit. You can learn to be more sophisticated in understanding the general theoretical principle of the emotions of others, and learning to recognize cues and be more sensitive to their emotions if such is in keeping with your sense of cognitive ethics, but it won't coax you to feel what/how they feel.
OP: your initial post was unclear and I mistakenly thought that you HAD cured your Alexithymia. It now seems that you were actually asking whether there IS one. I concur with the answer given by CV.
I'm new to this forum (scored as 129) and also just getting to know how Alexi among my other Borderline Personality Disorders (BPD) may be affecting my life. Through cursory research, I've found what CV mentioned above, as #1, to be what I fall under and that Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) could be a strong option for me to look into.
Writing about DBT commonly mentions, "It teaches patients skills to cope with, and change, unhealthy behaviors.". So if your Alexi is possibly based on a response to emotional trauma, improper "be strong" teachings, etc., then working hard at temporary changes > which may become growing life changes could be a good option. Even if you fall into the #2 group, then DBT may help you fake it until a neurological cure is found.
I found some great self-help DBT books on Amazon and $20 group therapy sessions on Psychology Today, which utilize DBT skills as a baseline.
@FeelingAlive...life coaching with an NLP trained practitioner can also help with that. If you need some contacts, I have plenty! I'm training at the moment, so have access to plenty of students who are much further ahead than I am.
