Ask an Autistic – What is Alexithymia? (Difficulty Expressing Your Emotions)

This is a really helpful video. Just within the past few years, I realized that I was confusing physical feelings with emotions and believing I was a lot more emotionally upset than I really was. My moods lifted as son as I started feeling better. It was very interesting to observe – how when pressed for an explanation about my feelings about myself, I realized (logically) that I wasn’t feeling badly emotionally, but I was feeling poorly physically. Fascinating.
