Sharing a post and rant about it.
I came across this article today and I usually don't get on a rant, but while some of this article has merit, there are some clear falsehoods. First it was written by a Psychiatrist so the article is very pro medication. I can deal with that (its their area of practice). However, the use of "always" and "never" is a dead giveaway that the author is pushing people away from seeking help in the form of therapy or coaching. Lastly, that rejection sensitivity doesn't respond to therapy or coaching is pure bunk. Having worked with people for over 25 years, there is no better place to explore sensitivity to rejection and feel support and understanding and develop skills and approaches that are protective and proactive socially. The conclusions in this article are basically saying that you will never be well without pills. I welcome your thoughts or comments. https://www.additudemag.com/symptoms-of-add-hyperarousal-rejection-sensitivity/?utm_source=eletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=best_december_2018&utm_content=122818&goal=0_d9446392d6-1602c33b1a-293641194
