'Love Island’s' Olivia Attwood Feels "Naked" After Revealing She Suffers From ADHD

In a very brave Instagram post opening up about her condition, former Love Island star Olivia Attwood has revealed she suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The 27-year-old opened up about the condition after admitting she was "obsessed" with writing lists.

The first Instagram post showed she was travelling somewhere on a train and the caption read: "Left my f*cking diary and To-Do list at home. Not happy. Anyone else obsessed with list writing?"

She then did a poll asking whether her followers felt the same way.

The reality star's fans were quick to ask why she loved writing lists so much, so on her next post, Olivia decided to open up about her condition.

"You guys asking why I love writing lists lol, so... I was diagnosed with ADHD many many years ago and writing lists is one thing I was taught to do that helps me organise my thoughts.

"Every night before bed I right the next day in order of what I'm going to do, even things as simple as.. 'eat breakfast' Find it so therapeutic and helps me feel in control of my day and stops me doing weird impulsive s**t (most of the time lol)."

As an afterthought at the bottom of the story she said: "That was a big share from me and now I feel very naked and awkward. You guys know how I hate that LOL."

According to the NHS website: "Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioural disorder that includes symptoms such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness."

Her candid Instagram post comes after she and her boyfriend, Bradley Dack, moved house weeks after being targeted by burglers.

The couple decided to leave their Manchester home after being left shaken by the crime.

The reality star explained in an interview with the son several weeks ago: "It was horrible. We were in bed, someone had a key, we don't know who it was... We're moving anyway, we're moving this week."

The thieves stole two Mercedes cars from their driveway, Chanel and Louis Vuitton bags, a Rolex and a laptop computer.
