Found this very helpful summary of Emotional Dysregulation in ADHD. It explains me exactly minus achieving work/academic goals. Fear of failure/rsd/anxiety plus IQ made that possible. Hope others can benefit from it as well. Sent to my wife so she better understands why I sometimes get overreact. Actually think this is more detrimental to me than the oft-thought symptoms of ADHD. 🙏
