A question for anyone with ADHD: Do you really hate when things change? Are you like me, emotionally sensitive? Oversensitive? Prone to overreact? Outbursts of panic or anger? Once you finally figure something out, are you hugely upset when it gets changed, discontinued, or is only available in the New & Improved version?

My moods are too often driven by my failures and successes or, perceived failures, which are many, many more than my actual failures. And, there are few successes after which I actually pause, notice, acknowledge, and celebrate.
Before I understood my ADHD, when I’d make small mistakes and they were pointed out, I’d often brush them off, miffed, ‘Whatever! You get the point.’ I felt like, ‘I’ve created the Mona Lisa for God’s sake, who cares if the frame has a chip in it!? Nitpickers! Critics! Complainers!’ By the way being ‘overly sensitive’ and ‘prone to drama’ are very common for many of us.
