I'm sharing this absolutely everywhere I think is appropriate, because it is game changing for me.

How ADHD Ignites Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria: "Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is an extreme emotional sensitivity and emotional pain triggered by the perception – not necessarily the reality – that a person has been rejected, teased, or criticized by important people in their life. RSD may also be triggered by a sense of failure, or falling short – failing to meet either their own high standards or others’ expectations. [...] RSD can make people with ADHD anticipate rejection — even when it anything but certain. This can make them vigilant about avoiding it, which can be misdiagnosed as social phobia. Social phobia is an intense anticipatory fear that you will embarrass or humiliate yourself in public, or that you will be scrutinized harshly by the outside world."

Hahaha (sob), I even have to deal with RSD when posting this. "But what if it's not fandom applicable enough?" Hush, brain, it's definitely fandom applicable!

Ahem. For anyone who's ever been absolutely terrified to post something fannish because "what if no one likes it," this might just be the answer you're looking for.
