I also can relate to this. It sounds like you are a younger person (teen or young adult), and that is a tough stage of life to begin with – when you add in ADHD, rejection sensitivity (that fear of criticism) and what sounds like anxiety, it’s no wonder you feel overwhelmed. It sounds to me like you are being very hard on yourself. You are doing the right thing by seeking help, but above all be gentle with yourself. Try and let go of the “shoulds” (easier said than done, I know!)and just show yourself love and kindness as you are – you deserve that, from others and yourself.
