Dr Caroline Stevenson discusses Rejection Sensitivity resulting from ADHD and offers some strategies to overcome this challenging experience
Feeling rejected by friends, family members or romantic partners is a painful experience for any of us but some individuals have a more acute emotional reaction to rejection than others and also have a greater fear of being rejected.
Especially high levels of rejection sensitivity are known as rejection sensitive dysphoria or RSD. People with ADHD often struggle with emotional regulation, and it is thought that, perhaps for this reason, RSD frequently co-occurs with ADHD. For some adults with ADHD their RSD can be severe enough to interfere with their daily life and relationships.
