May began her career at a hard-charging tech start up – it was a difficult job to get, but at a quality company that matched the quality of her college. Her hours were long and stressful and the job was very demanding. May continued to use Adderall at her job, which was common among the other young people at her company – they ever traded pills just like May had back in high school and college.
