What exactly is "rejection sensitivity?" Are they referring to someone being more prone to depression if someone rejects us? My docs have always insisted I'm bipolar, but I never have pronounced manic and grandiose episodes. In my case, I tend to be just "bummed out" for lack of a better descriptor. Anhedonia (losing interest in previously enjoyable activities) is a big problem for me. My meds are working well enough that I don't have suicidal ideations anymore, but the things I do enjoy don't provide the same pleasure that they once did. Perhaps in the future, treating depression will have a more targeted approach and not the "shotgun" method that the doctors use now where a variety of meds (in a variety of dosages) are thrown at the patient hoping to find the best result.
