ADHD is a mental disorder that is defined as a disability under the ADA (Americans with Disability Act).
This disability inhibits those with it to function normally in our society. Without medication, those with ADHD cannot live normal lives.
A* (A* wishes to remain anonymous) suffers from severe ADHD, but cannot afford their medication. A* is a dependent of a low ranking service member in the military and is therefore on a government based healthcare. Unfortunately, her insurance refuses to cover the specific medication A’s* doctor prescribed to them.
Because of the fixed income in their home, A* cannot pay for their medication themself. This has made it so A cannot finish their schooling and prevents them from being able to re-join the work field.
Not only this, but A* has been unable to manage their mental health since early 2019. The severity of A’s situation isn’t something I could truly explain in words.
A* attempted to illustrate these issues through the simple drawing used for the photo in this fundraiser.
Thank you for reading, any help at all is greatly appreciated.
$4,000 is how much it would cost for a years worth of medication for A*
