Jessica was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 12 and prescribed Ritalin. Month after month she visited a psychiatrist, and the medication helped SO MUCH. As she got older, though, she learned to be ashamed of her medication; and at 32, her life was falling apart despite taking it, and she realized medication wasn’t enough. She talks about her journey to understand her brain and build an ADHD toolbox to support it — and the unexpected “tool” she found that mattered most of all.
