Daily Alexithymia

Alexithymia is a complicated condition. It is not officially recognized in the ICD-10 (what is used to bill insurance companies in the USA and to simplify medical diagnosis for archival purposes of offices). It can be found in the APA booklet that describes different traits and medical conditions, however. In the APA, it is described as “noun. an inability to express, describe, or distinguish among one’s emotions.”
