Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria (RSD)
Some patients with ADHD are emotionally sensitive and react. You may have read about the concept of ‘Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria (RSD)’, and note that you are also overly sensitive which commonly leads to moodiness or arguments and can put a strain on relationships.
It can result in an attack of rage against the person that has triggered it, or an episode of profound low mood, usually accompanied by the physical sensation of having being wounded (such as a blow to the chest) and typically lasts a few hours to a few days.
ADHD was traditionally thought to just affect children and teenagers. Now it is recognised that most people with ADHD do not ‘grow out of it’ and it usually continues into adulthood.
