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.
