A common term in BDSM is sub drop but rarely, if ever, is Dom(me) drop discussed. It is a real thing and does happen! We focus so much on making sure subs are cared for that we are often left to deal with it alone.
Dom(me) drop is very much the same as sub drop – but D’s can have more emotional turmoil than subs, especially when it involves ‘hurting’ someone. Society has conditioned us to not to hurt people so mentally this can be very hard to process. Dom(me) drop can make us suffer a number of symptoms like, crying, tiredness, anxiety, fatigue, stress, irritability, tension headaches, migraines, nausea and/or vomiting. A common reaction is also to suffer depression like symptoms, to shutdown, become reclusive and closed off.
