Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria (RSD)

Can you identify it?

Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is often experienced by those with ADHD. It is an intense emotional response to the perception of rejection or criticism.

People with RSD may experience overwhelming feelings of sadness, shame, or anxiety in response to situations where they feel rejected, even if the rejection is not real or is minor.


These emotional reactions can be disproportionate to the situation, and RSD can significantly impact a person's relationships, self-esteem, academic achievement, and overall well-being.

I've put together a checklist to help identify RSD, which you can get instantly by popping your details in the box.
