ADHD Emotions Part 3— ADHD Tip O the Day 923

Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria as a part of  ADHD

Do I have RSD?  I don’t know.  I reread the article, it says usually the crashes just last for hours, mine last a day or two. Still, I’m certainly overly sensitive and over reactive, although pretty it’s pretty much limited to my wife.

I’ve thought the overreaction was just due to so many failures and so much criticism which comes with our ADHD, such damage to our self esteem, that we were fragile, vulnerable and oversensitive to any negative input.  I hadn’t imagined it as a syndrome, a symptom, or a separate diagnosis.

Anyway, whatever, it’s a booger.

Finished two books last week! Your life Can Be Better, using strategies for adult ADHD, and Alma Means Soul, my first novel. Now comes the hard and dreaded work of publishing them. Will be looking for reviewers.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.

    love the poems. if you need somebody to help out with reviewing the book, let me know. I know a couple people who xould really benefit from reading it and I could count on then to be accountable to provide you with a meaningful review.

    sidenote: your follow-up-of-the-day is medical cannabis. I would love to hear some of your thoughts on that and how it could effect the readers of your blog with supplementing psychopharmacological treatments for their adhd and other potential comorbid disorders
