Prompt for the Day: “Exhale”

The people at the Daily Post division of word press who can’t figure out if there even is a glass created the prompt of “Exhale” to sharpen our thoughts around,  Then they included a single statement – “Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright. ”

Am neither optimistic or pessimistic

I just know that and am thankful for the fact I actually have a glass!  Tend to always plan for the worst case scenario while praying for the best out come to happen.  My friends can depend on me to always be prepared for emergencies, what ever may arise.  Know that this fact takes a lot of fun out of life in general, but would rather be safe than sorry for forgetting to check the conditions!

Used to say I was a realist, but that is not quite what my choices make me into.  Even pessimists do not plan as much as I do.  Know for sure I am not an optimist, either.

My life has always been headed for disaster

Until I met my husband, it was one disaster after another.  Once I graduated from college and married the next day things calmed down for a bit.  Had one glorious year of wedded bliss, then my body rebelled!  He had to rush me to the E.R. late one night because my mind was convinced I was falling off the earth.  My body started vomiting uncontrollably.  The people there gave me what amounted to an injection of Dramamine.  Once I was feeling a little better, they sent me home with a prescription for a pill form of the injected medicine.  Although the medicine worked, it was way over priced.  After a bit of research, found out there was an over the counter form much cheaper.  Now carry it with me where ever I go!

 Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500.  There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days!  Biogen (the manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.  So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.  To contribute to the fund, click on the following link:

All help will be greatly appreciated.   Thank you for your generosity!

Leave either your saintly wisdom or even better demonic musings!
