Me Trying to Succeed as an Adult

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

I'm 22 years old and a recent college graduate. I am working hard establishing my own business laying flooring (ceramic tile, marble, wood), installing cultured stone, building showers, etc. I was diagnosed as an infant with asthma. I did well with it as a child but at one point I did have a physician who was over medicating me and had me on high doses of prednisone. My face was round and the other kids ridiculed me. It really made me feel bad. I have never let my asthma stop me from doing what I love, including playing baseball and football in high school. Now that I no longer have health insurance there have been times when I have worked my way through an asthma attack using mind over matter. I know this isn't always going to work for me, but right now I don't have the funds for the emergency room and I don't want to burden my parents with my bills. I take Advair, Albuterol, and Claritin for my asthma. I also have ADHD and if I don't take my Aderall XR I have a hard time staying on task with my work. I can't run a business that way and succeed. I work most days because I won't get ahead working 8 to 5, Monday through Friday. I am determined to succeed.

Medication at an affordable cost

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

My doctor told me that I have high blood pressure and that I need to be on medication to control it. The cost per month for me is expensive. I also live with acid reflux disease and I work everyday to maintain a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating right. I rely on my medication to control both my high blood pressure and acid reflux. When I learned about the free prescription card offer I was skeptical at first. It sounds too good to be true.

I am very excited to have this opportunity to receive my medication at an affordable cost.
