Sent in my votes. But here's my more in-depth answer.

Yes, I often feel as if I have an aversion to vulnerability. I rarely show my true emotions ever since I've gotten DP/DR, and it's quite hard to deal with. With this condition, I often believe that I have to avoid being vulnerable at all costs, because I feel like that if people are exposed to my vulnerable side, they will use this part of me against me. Plus, I have these feelings as if showing emotions makes you weak. Deep down inside, I know that it's quite the opposite, yet I cannot shake the domineering 'if-you-show-your-emotions-you're-automatically-weak' feeling.
