There's something that's become an increasing issue for me over the past few years and I have no idea what to do about it, if anything. I don't know if it's something sociopathic, or related to my ADHD or what, but I just can't value friendships, I can't put enough energy into a friendship to keep it going and I really only have one friend and it's because she actually takes interest in me. I've started identifying as aplatonic, but I don't know if that's valid, if it's just mental illness, or something else. it just seems odd because.. when it comes to a-identities it's always aro or ace, and I feel sort of alone in this issue. I don't think it's sociopathic (and that's not necessarily good or bad, sociopathy is fine in most cases) because I still love people and respect everyone, but it just doesn't feel right. It feels like I'm missing a key part of being human.

    If you have the emotion then it's not sociopathy or anti social personality. With ADHD friendships can be really hard to manage, even worse when combined with anxiety and or autism. The friend burnout is real. Self care is helping me feel like I can start to manage friendships again slowly.
