Rob McElhenney, 46, diagnosed with ‘neurodevelopmental disorders’


Rob McElhenney has revealed that he’s been diagnosed with several neurodevelopmental disorders.

The “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” creator, 46, took to social media Tuesday to reveal that he also has learning disabilities.

“I was recently diagnosed with a host of neurodevelopmental disorders and learning disabilities! At 46!” he tweeted, adding that he hopes him sharing the news will help others going through a similar situation.

“It’s not something I would normally talk about publicly but I figured there are others who struggle with similar things and I wanted to remind you that you’re not alone. You’re not stupid. You’re not ‘bad,'” he went on. “It might feel that way sometimes. But it’s not true :).”

McElhenney said he plans on sharing more details of the diagnosis on his “The Always Sunny Podcast” with costars Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day later this month.

McElhenney said he hopes sharing the news will help others going through a similar situation.
