In an emotional Instagram post, the 29-year-old, whose real name is Jackson Brazier, opened up about his mental health and career since the Covid pandemic.

“A lot of things happened in 2022, but the biggest one is that I was diagnosed with ADHD and depression at age 29 at the end of this year,” he continued.
“It was life changing knowing that it wasn’t always my fault and how I was and how I wasn’t able to cross the lines of success that I know I can cross.
‘Everything is so clear now. If I didn’t have the support of the people closest to me, I wouldn’t even have sought help.

“Learning about ADHD and mental health has helped me learn life-changing coping strategies,” Tammin said in August.
Former Bachelor star Megan Marx recently sparked controversy online when she called the recent spate of diagnoses a “fad”.
“I know a bunch of people who have been ‘diagnosed’ even though they claim they don’t have ADHD because they like the effects of amphetamines,” she said on Instagram.

She also claimed that ADHD medications were “overused” and “it is possible that social media platforms are causing self-diagnoses based on superficial characteristics and stereotypes.”
She received major backlash for her opinions, particularly from Abbie Chatfield, who lambasted Megan in a series of Instagram posts.
‘Hey queen. Thank you so much for this unfounded and invalid opinion, exclaimed Abbie.
“Thank you very much, you decided that you think people are trying to take weight loss drugs because of ADHD drugs. This is the new weight loss influencer drug, you think?” she continued.
‘Do you know how hard it is to get ADHD medication or to be diagnosed? Do you know how difficult it is?
