The commenter asked Fox if she could make a video about navigating her career while being neurodivergent.

Fox said living with OCD and ADHD has been a rollercoaster because one minute she's hyper-productive and the next she feels unable to do anything.

It's been very difficult... I have a little bit of OCD as well, which I just realized was OCD, because I used to count the number of letters inside of words in my head, and I'd always want them to reach to 10.

For Fox, she only realized later after years of dealing with challenging days like times when she felt unable to move or do anything. She added that she smoked weed to medicate herself and it helps with the OCD but doesn't help with the ADHD and unproductivity.

Mayo Clinic suggests professional help for adults suffering from the ailment.

On her productive days, Fox continues pushing the envelope in fashion and her appearances at the Spring/Summer 2023 fashion shows worldwide from New York to Paris and Milan prove she's not stopping soon.

Fox recently modeled an innovative outfit wearing an all-black Matrix-style combo with a handbag made of keyboard keys and boots made of electrical tapes.

Fox is an eccentric individual as she makes provocative comments just-because, even though she never means any harm. Last summer, while modeling a bodysuit, knee-high boots, and long pyro coat, she said the rooftop was where she conceived her son, Valentino.

She opened up again about postpartum depression saying she got a reality check when giving birth wasn't all the rave she was promised as a little girl.
