Defeat the Weasels: Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria and D/s

Class Description

Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria is a little-understood aspect of ADHD that frequently co-occurs with anxiety. For submissives in relationships where behavior correction may be part of daily life, the extreme emotional responses prompted by RSD can be even worse pain than a physical punishment. For Dominants with RSD, the roller coaster ride of negative thoughts can damage self-confidence and the trust that is essential to safe play. Finding ways to listen to your partner instead of your brain weasels is a great reward personally and within the dynamic.
