RSD is probably the least favorite “superpower” of ADHD.

“…I felt numb.

I felt like there was nothing worth doing or anything.

It all seemed very, very pointless.

Um, and I was lucky that I had access to healthcare and I believe in, you know, the power of therapy.

And I got to talk to a VA therapist and go through a program.

And one of the parts of the program was he said, look, what did you do when you were a kid that you enjoyed?

When you were, you know, what's the last time you remember doing something that was just for you, that you enjoyed for yourself, for itself, not because you were going to make money at it or get things like that?

And I said, well, I liked Dungeons and Dragons.”

I mention an article from Psychology Today in this episode. You can find it here.
