About

Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD), a very common symptom of ADHD, is a tendency to be unusually sensitive to feelings of rejection – including:

  • feeling rejected where no rejection was intended
  • feeling unusually upset at relatively small rejections that most people would shrug off or recover from quickly

There is no known cure, but it can be managed with medication and therapy.

There is as yet comparatively little literature about this condition, despite the large number of people who seem to suffer from it. Wikipedia mentions it only briefly as "rejection sensitivity".
