Tilly also explained how her diagnosis made it difficult for her to concentrate during school.
“I found it so hard to concentrate at school,” she said.
‘I did very well in my Higher School Certificate and in uni, but people don’t realize how many problems ADHD can cause in everyday life. To do an assignment I need every bone in my body – sitting still is so hard.”

Tilly’s interview comes after she revealed how an acupuncture treatment at home went horribly wrong, leaving her with injuries to her face.
Tilly had tried to give herself acupuncture after seeing someone do it on TikTok, but warned fans to leave such procedures to professionals.
She decided to open up about the incident after Big Brother fans kept asking why she was wearing a blue clay face mask on the Channel Seven show.

“This is what my face looked like a week before I came into the house, which is why I always have makeup on and my skin is always covered,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside confrontational images of her facial injuries.
“This is the result of an attempt to remove scars I inflicted on myself by mimicking an at-home beauty procedure I saw on a TikTok video two months before Big Brother,” she added.
Please, please don’t try any DIY or home beauty procedures. I ended up in the hospital with temporary loss of vision in my eye due to swelling and was very sick with the infection, not to mention my face was somewhat unrecognizable.”
