A relationship breakup can often cause adults with ADHD to feel depression, anger, low self-esteem, and other symptoms of a mental health disorder. At its worst, these emotional problems can lead to substance abuse or self-harm.
The best way for an adult with ADHD to cope with break up is by telling others what they are experiencing. Self-reflecting awareness on the part of the person involved will help them realize that their feelings are valid and not a personal failure. This awareness will help them move past their feelings on to find peace in their lives again. Perhaps one day they'll be able to say goodbye once more without breaking down into tears in between each letter they write the ex-partner whom they miss dearly.
