You Know What a Ferrari Is, Right?


It’s a really fast sports car.

Do you feel like you have one in your head?

Maybe not an actual Ferrari, but something that goes really fast?

Like all of those thoughts spinning around in your head?

Nighttime is when most people with ADHD experience racing thoughts, or at least, when they cause the most trouble.

Therapy might be an option as well.

And there are other conditions that can cause racing thoughts, so if nothing else is working, you may want to consult a mental health professional.

You can take control of your racing thoughts. It may take some practice, but it is possible. Don’t give up.
