Constant Questioning

One woman tells the price she has to pay just to feel "normal."

I take both a long-acting and a short-acting stimulant medication each day. The pharmacy kept asking why I needed both prescriptions for months, until I had discussed my situation with every employee there. Now my only hassle is finding the time for a monthly visit with my provider. Still, it’s a small price to pay for feeling “normal.”
