Body Language: 'I didn’t learn anything at school, other than how to hate myself'

Follow the animated journey of a young woman as she tries to understand the limitless energy that always had her on the verge of trouble at school. After a diagnosis of bipolar in her teens, she began to read about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and her condition was confirmed during a psychological assessment for a new job. But then she had to find out what her 'normal' was, and whether she wanted to be that way after all.
