Prompt for today: “Fog”

The completely unclear people from the Daily Post division of Word Press chose the word “Fog” to spur our creations of various types of art for today.

My Foggy Brain

Happens to be mostly a result of an evil disease more commonly known as multiple sclerosis.  Generally causes it’s sufferers to experience varying types brain fog.  Mornings are when I can fight through it the best and generate some work either household chores or typing on one of our laptop computers.  By about 3 in the afternoon, my mind is done with getting any sense out of it.

My brain fog has absolutely nothing to do with my age or what I have put into my body (like alcohol or drugs).  Wish it did, because then I could control when and where the fog occurred!  I might actual enjoy a case of self inflicted brain fog that way.  Haven’t been drunk in years.

Drank so much while in my freshman year of college (mind you I was only 17 when I started that year) had to ask a room mate who was in the room when I changed clothes one day due to pictures that ended up on my camera!  That day forced me to realize I had a problem, so went dry by myself over a long 3 day weekend.  Going dry cold turkey was rough.  Glad I had the suite to myself, because spent way too much time in the bathroom!

Please Help Fight Terrible 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. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
