Prompt for the Day: “Young At Heart”

The prompt for today is “Young At Heart“.  The eternal writer’s source of inspiration at the Daily Post division of Word Press asked two additional questions-“What are your thoughts on aging? How will you stay young at heart as you get older?”.

Wish I’d just Die and get it Over With!

Am in my early 40’s, but feel like I am in my upper 80’s due to being confined to a wheelchair by multiple sclerosis!  The house we now live in has floors covering the main floor, which makes moving around in my wheelchair much easier.  Need to get the main floor bathroom converted for me to be able to take a shower by myself when needed.  At the present time my husband has to physically lift me into the tub and put me on my shower chair to safely be able to take a shower.  If his back ever goes out, I am in big trouble!

With all the money we spend on my various prescriptions for different medicines, he would be much more wealthy without me around.  For some unknown reason, he still seems to enjoy my company.  If God would just call me up, things would be so much better!

I write using my laptop to try to keep my mind working daily.  My handwriting is illegible these days, because of unsteadiness of my hands.  So I type.  Learned to type by teaching myself how to use my mother’s old manual typewriter around fourth grade.  Have been handing in typewritten work since I got the hang of using it!

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!
