Allie Rivera found her turning point in a load of laundry. After spending a Saturday afternoon stuck in ADHD paralysis while the very loud and very critical voice in her head insisted she do the laundry, Allie began reading about ADHD and seeing more ADHD content on social media. She received her official diagnosis in 2021.
Today, as an underwriter or on stage as an improv comedian and teacher at the Sea Tea Comedy Theater in Hartford, CT, Allie sat down to talk with us about what it’s like to be diagnosed in your mid-30s, and her experience working with a doctor on a treatment plan.
