Hello fellow Alexithemia sufferers! I have dealt with Alexithemia for most of my life and am dismayed that NO ONE seems to have any clue what it is, there is a HUGE lack of awareness!!

I am also an indie game developer, I have just recently released a short one hour game about a character trying to navigate life with a broken frown (Alexithemia).

I really hope to get this out there, to help people understand that this effects them and their loved ones! The better this is understood, the better things get for everyone.

Please check the game out, and if you think it is an accurate representation of Alexithemia SHARE IT!!! Let's make waves and get this disorder into the general knowledge of the public! I worked hard on this game and hope that it will help many people, not just those who suffer from Alexithemia, but those who interact with such one in their day to day lives as well.

Here is the link to check out the game, PLEASE HELP ME GET THIS OUT THERE!! :)

I have Alexithymia, I don't 'suffer' from it. Spread awareness of it? Why?

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
