Medicated or Misunderstood?
The other night I was talking to a new friend about the different medications we take. She was embarrassed because she thought she was slurring her speech.  Her medications mixed with the painkiller Percocet (acetaminophen and oxycodone) for rheumatoid arthritis (a "long-term disease that leads to inflammation of the joints and surrounding tissues") was having physical and visible side-effects.
