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.
