Neurodivergence can be a challenge at the best of times, but it's made even harder by how widely misunderstood it is. Many people go undiagnosed and spend their entire lives wondering why they can't just 'be normal' or do the things that their peers seem to do easily. This series shows the day-to-day reality of trying to live your best life as a neurodivergent person.
Modern life is overwhelming. Just when you’re finally coping, there’s always a curveball ready to throw you off.
Bex Ollerton explores how depression and ADHD can make you seek out negativity to avoid feeling restless or numb.
