ADHD OASIS Meetup [VIRTUAL]: Managing Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

You Are Not Alone

Join us on Thursday. March 21st for New Tech's ADHD OASIS Meetup: Managing Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

Understanding and managing rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is really important, especially for adults with ADHD who might struggle with emotional regulation. RSD can cause intense pain in response to feeling rejected or criticized, and it's tough because traditional therapies might not always help. People with RSD tend to have strong emotional reactions to negative feedback or feeling left out, and others might see them as being overly sensitive or perfectionistic. During this meetup we will talk about signs of RSD and ways to find personalized strategies that really make a difference in how it affects everyday life and happiness.

Join us for New Tech Northwest's ADHD OASIS Meetup. This virtual event will combine community and coaching to support you in building supportive systems for managing your neurodiverse brain. Discover how to decrease your neurodiverse challenges while building relationships with fellow ADHDers and neurodiverse peers who are on similar journeys.

You can attend these virtual Meetups on the third Thursday of every month. The more Meetups you attend, the more peer connections you'll make with other professionals who have neurodiverse brains like you. Instead of being lonely in your experience, come laugh, learn, and connect with your community.

During the Meetups we'll share struggles as well as systems and strategies to overcome your executive functioning and working memory challenges like anxiety, overwhelm, miscommunication, interrupting, inattentiveness, stress, distractibility, procrastination, paperwork fails, imposter syndrome, having to mask your neurodiversity at work, and weak organization skills. Welcome!
