Once a month, I go to the pharmacy to fill three prescriptions. I take five pills every day. When I travel, when there’s a holiday, or I’m going to be unable to get downtown, I have to plan far ahead to make sure I have enough. Thanks to my insurance, I can afford it reasonably.
My medication is my lifeline, but it’s also an inconvenience and, at times, a burden. And that makes me extremely fortunate.
