Prompt for the Day: “Punishment”


The sadists at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose the word “Punishment” for us to create our various works of art about for the day.

What Forms of Discipline Do You Hate?

As a kid, spent my life in literal fear of my father who handed out the most painful punishments.  He had the knack of not leaving visible damage that wasn’t covered by our clothing.  So my teachers never knew of the abuse he inflicted on me and my younger brothers.  One of the first things I did upon leaving home to attend college was get self defence training!  He would never be able to hurt me again!

What forms of punishment did you endure as a child?

One of the worst punishments was in my high school years, when he forbade me to talk to my mother about my problems anymore.  She had to resort to asking my friends what was bothering me back then.  Thankfully, my friends all liked my mom!  Unfortunately, I had not told them about my father’s mandate about not speaking to her.  Face it, your high school years can be the most difficult time in a young person’s life to navigate through!

All comments will be read by me, personally!

Was an honest nerd who enjoyed teaching others when our teachers failed to clearly explain the subject matter to fellow students.  Would not give answers to my friends, just show them how to arrive at them on their own!  There was one time when a teacher was not grading one of my friend’s papers fairly, so I had her write the assigned essay and I signed my name to it and I wrote one and had her sign her name to it.  She received her first decently graded paper and I received an ‘A’ like normal.  When the teacher handed back our papers, I confessed our deceit.

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.
