Alexithymia- the new disease?

Alexithymia- the inability to describe one’s own feelings.

Mental health workers take alexithymia as more of a personality trait rather than a mental disability. Many people with mental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder or ADHD, also display alexithymia. Researches have found out that people with and without mental disorders had the same effect on alexithymia. Recent research said that people with other disorders such as anorexia can also lead to alexithymia.
