What is adult ADHD?  

– A mental health condition that affects and limits the attention span

– Treatment can include counselling, training, and sometimes medication 

Tahlia said that she’ll be working with medical professionals to ‘come up with a game plan’ to help her in future to live with the condition. 

‘So far I’ve been able to manage it (clearly my whole life) but would love to be able to focus more on so I can achieve more things (sic)’. 

She added in another post: ‘I struggle with study, long term projects, distraction, boredom and jumping from one thing to the next to name a few.’ 

Tahlia has long been open about her health and also suffers from Crohn’s disease. 

‘Crohn’s disease is silent but painful,’ she said back in 2020, after being rushed to hospital after a ‘Crohn’s attack’ during dinner.  

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the digestive tract.

It can cause abdominal pain, diarrhoea and anaemia, as well as life-threatening complications.
