I dont know if this is just me but when people ignore you (not on purpose) it makes you go into a depressive mood. I hate attention but when someone ignores me it just makes me super angry? Like for example if someone ignored me i would go into a sucidial mood thinking no one loves me. Is that normal?

    I go through the same thing. I'm so annoyed when people talk over me ..

    This is me! Honestly!! I don't go into suicidal mode but I do think the world or my world has ended or at least come to a stop and I get majorly depressed to the point it stops my activities I'm doing. This is a problem in my relationships and when I have a close friend I was super attached to. 😓 Everyone calls me clingy and controlling when they're at the other end of this but I'm not trying to control anybody. I just feel like I'm devalued and not as important as other people. It really screws with my pysche and I hate it!! Lol

      Exactly that omg! I get called obsessive which tbh i see what they mean that’s usually why my friendships dont last 💔

        I can totally see their points too and I've tried talking it out with the people who have been on this side of things and explaining how I feel and it's not a control tactic, I just wanna be treated the same as their other friends, etc etc. But it always ends super bad and I'm pegged as the bad guy and I even think to myself maybe I'am. It's really messed with my self esteem and why I don't try to create friendships anymore. I've had people try to talk to me but I will honestly ghost them now so this doesn't happen. 😅 I don't know how to fix it. What are some ways you might be working on this? If you have some pointers you'd like to share?

      ive realised a lot of people experience this. I wonder what it is? Maybe a trauma response? Im going to research about it :)

    I do the same, my mind takes me down dark rabbit holes and the next thing I know I've locked myself in a bathroom and I'm crying my eyes out trying not to do something I shouldn't

    Rejection Sensitive Disphoria is a helluva drug! It's hard, but it can help to try and recognize the early warning symptoms so you can slow yourself down a little.

        From what I understand, it's closely linked to ADHD and autism, and is a combo of "you had trauma that partially stemmed from misunderstandings/high expectations" and "your brain processes things that trigger that trauma as pain." My psychiatrist suggested a combo of meds (guanfacine in my case) and therapy to re-train the wiring in my brain, at which point I can probably get off the meds. It's been helpful so far! I try phrasing what I say about it in a way that externalizes it. Like: Hey, my RSD thinks that you're mad at me, could you clarify what you said? Your mileage may vary, and some days are worse than others, but it's a process.❤️

      I too would like more information if you have any! I didn't know it had a name.

    I deal with this a lot too (currently dealing with it). It makes me super suicidal/want to self harm when people ignore me. I legit obsess over it and it sucks. I don't know if it's "normal" but I go through it a lot. I also get super angry at them and then myself but then get super sad and bounce between the two feelings. But I don't want to keep reaching out and appear annoying/desperate

    This just happened to me. One guy I was talking to was ignoring me and it felt like my friends weren't checking up on me so I got extremely depressed to the point of being borderline suicidal. It all went away when he texted me back. I become obsessed with a person and when they don't text me back/ignore me I become extremely depressed and feel worthless and annoying and it is so awful. I hate being this way. I don't want my happiness to depend on others.
