Oh my...

I had no idea this was a thing. Of course I can relate as a fear of rejection was such a huge part of my youth.

I will need to read up on this. Might be worth it for my sons.

Hmmmm, I don't think so, perhaps the pain is similar but the reaction to it bears the difference. i have witnessed narscisstic injury and yes I'd say it's very painful for the person but the cold manovering for revenge that I have seen over what seem minor slights is not something I see in adhd.

I think like physical pain, it just hurts.

What I notice about this adhd associated pain is how it holds me back. i won't apply for a job in the office. i know I could do the job, I know *'d even excell at the job but being around so many coworkers each day I cannot bear it. It would be too painful.

I think Prozac is proving to be a remarkable compound for easing the symptoms of a variety of disorders besides depression. Depending on the dosage, it can be quite effective.

prozac allowed me to bear my problems easier but doesnt raise my mood. It also makes me drowsy. I was misdiagnosed for a long time and the prozac they gave me almost zombified me. It was very strange.
Ritalin on the other hand lifted me out of a long term situational depression and gave me finally hope.
