She sits down to read. But her thoughts bounce from putting on her sneakers to untangling a phone cord to putting on a sweatshirt. Her body's stays one place, while her mind jumps to a thousand unseen destinations.

It's a feeling many people with ADHD know well. Thoughts, whirling around in a blender. Or streaming like data through a computer that denies access to specific files and freezes or crashes when strained.

Medication silences the chatter, and drops Sanne into 'get-things-done' mode, but at what cost?
