They're a 10 but you're too anxious about being rejected to make a move.

What really sucks about RSD is you can tell yourself everything you know is true and it won't fucking matter. You'll still cry yourself to sleep over stupid shit because your brain hates you.
I'm so fucking tired of every day being a gods damned war with my mind.

getting your RSD triggered is literally just like taking major psychic damage in a video game

There's nothing like being unsure if its just RSD or if the person you're hanging out with actually wants you to leave 🙃
My brain says they are mad at me, but I would hope they would tell me if they want some time alone... That would make sense, right? Or is this a result of me being horrible at social queues? And I should already know?

Friend: *sends a funny video or post*
Me: *responds critically about an element of it that made me a little uncomfortable*
...
Me internally: am I being too critical, too negative?
...
Me internally: should I ask if I'm being too critical or negative?
...
Me internally: but what if they perceive that question as me wanting them to placate me, thereby making them even more uncomfortable than the original statement?
...
Me: *says nothing*
...
Me internally: *screams*

You know what sucks about RSD? When you apologize for it but your friend’s reassurance afterwards triggers your RSD even more?? Even when it’s the best thing for them to do??

rsd is absolutely insane because it will feel like someone is tearing apart the very core of my being, insulting everything i have done and will ever do, condemning me to death and simultaneously wishing i was never born, when actually they just didn’t like a song i showed them

Whew, I have been in a Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria spiral since yesterday.  Trying to make a conscious effort to think other thoughts and try to disrupt the spin a bit.  This is a BIG BIG issue for me and I need to get better at coping with it. 
“Since it is not a mental health condition in the DSM-5, there are not a set of empirically quantifiable criteria to determine whether you "officially" meet a diagnosis for RSD. But you may have a strong suspicion if you recognize yourself in several of the characteristics below:
High sensitivity about the possibility of rejection
Overly high standards for yourself
Feeling easily triggered toward guilt or shame
Isolating yourself in a preemptive strike not to be rejected
Aggressive or rageful behavior toward those who have been perceived to have slighted you
Frequently feeling an uncomfortable physical reaction due to "not fitting in" or being misunderstood
Self-esteem that is entirely dependent on what others think, and rises and falls accordingly
Frequent and intense ruminating after an interaction about how you did or said something wrong”
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE.

Let's talk about you and me, let's talk about RRE
Hahaha ok, association brain dumb music joke aside, my Same Brain ADHD buddy just made me aware of something called Recognition Responsive Euphoria, and LET me TELL YOU. I have some things to say about this now that I know it's a real concept. So RRE is literally the term for the opposite of Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria— it's a sense of euphoric joy derived from praise or positive response. For example, you tell your crush a lame joke and are floating the rest of the day because they laughed, or you get the warm fuzzies being nominated by your coworkers for employee of the month. It's the dopamine rush you get for being recognized for what you do. As with many emotions with ADHD, this may be something everyone experiences sometimes, but for us it's EVERY time and always set at MAX POWER. Everyone gets worried about making a good impression or what their boss thinks of them sometimes, but the common ADHD experience is that we get straight up "headed for a panic attack", "clinical anxiety disorder", "paranoid behavior" worried about these things every day with everyone around us, and we experience the polar opposite at the same intensity with praise and validation.
I have BIG feelings about RRE and RSD. It's a THING for me, and it can be just as amazing as harmful. What I really wish people around me understood, is that while criticism is a standard part of learning and improvement for most people, it's really detrimental to me on pretty much any level. I know the point of constructive criticism is to make people aware of things they don't realize they're doing and to help them learn not to do those things that way, and I also understand that I am the odd one out in any situation and can't expect people to bend over backwards to adjust to me, so I usually end up feeling just as bad for my criticizer as I do for myself. Thing is, though.... I am the odd one out; I am already well aware of the details I'm getting wrong, and I'm already berating myself enough for the two of us in my head. I can see everything in microscopic detail already, and am desperate to follow the process to the letter because I think it's what you want. Constructive criticism doesn't do it for me, because unlike other people, I already know what I'm bad at and just don't know how to fix it. Only speaking up when you want to point out ways I can improve will only drive the wedge of anger and paranoia deeper into my head, and I'll grow to resent everything about my job.
On the flip side, I cannot be praised and validated enough. I bust my ass just to keep up with everyone, and I'm constantly focused on what I'm doing wrong. For me, gratuitous praise isn't an ego thing; it's the part I'm genuinely unaware of, like my coworkers are unaware of faults. Not only that, but I LIVE to serve others and make them happy. I get the biggest hit of endorphins from someone saying they like my idea, or laughing at my joke, or complimenting something I made for them. This hit of euphoria gives me a megadose of the chemicals I have trouble regulating daily, so it's like taking my meds. And you'd better believe, all that dopamine and serotonin is one hell of an addictive drug— tell me I did something right, and I will do it that exact way for the rest of my life just to chase the memory of your validation one time. This, again, makes me the odd one out in any group, because generally society sees constant praise seeking as a sign of unnecessary egoism and narcissism— think of the very common stereotype of the Adonis personality that has such an overinflated view of their own talents that they end up being really petty and selfish— and ignores the possibility that it could be a sign of lack of confidence, self esteem, and stable footing. I know this about society in general, and it puts me in the difficult spot of not wanting to speak up and explain myself for fear of being high maintenance— the commonly used criticism based way of teaching and coaching works well for everyone else, and it's not fair of me to expect everyone else to have to adapt to my praise based way.
All that rambling out there and over, TL;DR: if you're in a leadership/guidance/teaching role over someone, and no matter how much you try to show them what isn't working and how to fix it they just seem to be closing off and shutting you down even more, try going in the other direction. Trust me, you can't see it, but they are just as frustrated as you are. Try pointing out any little thing you can that you like about them, no strings attached, no "bullshit sandwich", just praise them for something full stop. If they suddenly start to bloom, now you know; there is no limit to how amazing they can be as long as you never stop building them up.
