In brief: Seek psychotherapy.

Schizoid personality disorder individuals usually benefit from psychotherapy in which they learn how to connect with people around them and create emotional connections while controlling the anxiety generated by social interactions.
This is usually done teaching and modeling social skills, and by recognizing how emotions control our thoughts/actions. Find help with a psychotherapist in your area.

social skills can be helpful.
A clinical psychologist or other mental health professional can provide feedback and reality testing skills to help keep you grounded and focused. Peace and good health. Please do not rely on medication alone for this.

The main feature of schizoid PD is an indifference to interpersonal relationships, and therapy usually is ineffective.
