112 | Improvement through Improv with Rachel Hamilton

Rachel Hamilton is currently attending the ADHD rewired accountability group with Eric Tivers and 11 other people. We are fortunate she was able to take time to be with us this week to share her story.

Rachel was diagnosed with ADHD not long ago. She was at the Burning Man event when a friend of hers offered her a Ritalin. Rachel is now aware of the repercussions of taking ADHD meds recreationally, but nevertheless she did indulge years ago, and it had a profound effect on her.

After taking a Ritalin she felt organized and together. Things just felt right and she had an unfamiliar awareness she had never before experienced.

This made Her curious and she began to learn more about ADHD through the reading of books and articles.

Rachel tells of the fact that nothing has been a bigger eye-opener for her then the interactions she has had with the others in the ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Group
