    I'm starting to believe what people say about procrastination being a form of self-harm. When you miss something important it makes you feel terrible. I used to get nervous about deadlines but I'm slowly getting over it. The dread I feel after putting something in that isn't perfect isn't as bad as how missing deadlines makes me feel.

    Is it the act of doing the task with the deadline or the deadline itself?

    Glad to see a mental health thread. I suffer from different types of anxiety (social, traveling, when there's a deadline, etc) Im also ADD. I'm on meds for the anxiety but not the ADD. The anxiety meds gives me a bad headache which then makes the anxiety worse lol. For my ADD I'm learning my triggers.

    @oops, how do you deal with deadline situation?

I have always heard them on some level loud or soft. Right now I am not hearing them at all.

    I do very much miss them and a couple times thought about not taking my meds. But I know I can not do that.

    I am still having a lot of issues leaving the house and being around most people.

    The girl that I have been seeing her name is Kaye has been coming over once a week and we are going to up that to 2 times a week. Longest time spending time together has been 5 hours in one time. That is a huge step for the 2 of us as she has a lot of issues that I do as well.

    So all in all things have been going mostly well
    Hope everything is still going well for you.

    Thank you. Sometimes I find just having a listening ear helps more than getting advice.

    Please share whenever you need to. The worst thing we can do is keep it in till things get out of hand. If you ever need an ear to listen my pms are open.

    I've mentioned before in this thread that I have ADHD. Something that often comes with ADHD is called RSD, Rejection-Sensitive Dysphoria. I've known about it for several years but just in the last few weeks I realized that I have it and it's been complicating my relationship with my wife. I feel better just having figured this out. Next I need to figure out what to do with this knowledge.

    I'll let ADDitude magazine describe it (from https://www.additudemag.com/rejectio...ia-and-adhd/):

    Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is extreme emotional sensitivity and pain triggered by the perception that a person has been rejected or criticized by important people in their life. It may also be triggered by a sense of falling short—failing to meet their own high standards or others’ expectations.

    Dysphoria is Greek for “difficult to bear.” It’s not that people with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) are wimps, or weak; it’s that the emotional response hurts them much more than it does people without the condition. No one likes to be rejected, criticized or fail. For people with RSD, these universal life experiences are much more severe than for neurotypical individuals. They are unbearable, restricting, and highly impairing.
