Being broken / Taking meds

For a while, I've angsted about how taking dextroamphetamine three times a day for ADD emphasizes that I am broken. But I realized a short bit ago that, really, it's taking me back to baseline, not altering me from how I should be. It enables me to function in society since I'm not the most functional without the meds. My feeling broken like this isn't completely gone but it's certainly much better. I realized that for me to not take meds would be like someone who has lost their legs expecting to get around just find using their hands and arms. Sure, it's possible but it's rather ridiculous.

Englishing this really came about due to a friend who was feeling bad about taking meds so they could function. I left something similar to the above in their journal and I wanted to write about it here…
