What is alexithymia?

Updated: Jan 10

Alexithymia is very common in Autistic individuals, and can be affected by struggles with one of the lesser-known senses – interoception!

Alexithymia is a difficulty in feeling, understanding, interpreting, and communicating your emotions. An Autistic person with alexithymia is not an emotionless robot, but we can experience our emotions differently than our neurotypical counterparts.
