Emotional dysregulation isn’t even listed in the diagnostic criteria (DSM-5) for ADHD, and yet it’s something most of us struggle with very frequently. This is often the thing that holds us back the most in our careers, in our relationships and can destroy or self-confidence. How can you cope with emotions that are too… everything?! You’re too enthusiastic, you’re too depressed, you’re too excited, you lose your temper. It’s never like Goldilocks, where everything is just right. Do you often experience hurt feelings? Are you worrying constantly about things you have said and how they and you were perceived? Do you feel sick or pained when you don’t get a quick response from someone? Do you often believe YOU must have done something wrong…when the expected thing doesn’t happen? Let’s explore coping with the emotional dysregulation of ADHD and its frequent companion, Rejection Sensitivity, with Renee Crook, ACG.
