“By the time I was 20 [I had] already lost some of my best friend’s due to HIV or inhibitor complications. Wheelchairs were a common narrative. We spent a lot of time together in the hospital.
Now we are seeing people climb Mount Everest. I thought, “it’s not for me.” I signed up with the pharmacy and turned out that I needed to change my infusion schedule.
They set me up with an adherence specialist. In a couple of months, I was off pain meds. Managed to work more, earn more, spent less time in being in pain or just feeling down because I can’t do something. We need some special kind of support, and specialty pharmacy are well equipped to provide it.”
