The sleepy people at the Daily Post group of Word Press could only dream of reaching “Bedtime” for today’s prompt to inspire or creations.
Now I am Sleepy
Thanks a lot you guys! Have a full day still in front of me to go through before I get a chance for any more sleep.
Been a nerve racking day so far! Got a pre-op physical set up with the office of my primary care physician. That was the easy part of the whole nightmare. Once that was obtained for later this month had to delve into getting the dreaded M.R.I. set up like I promised my neurologist’s assistant I would get finished sometime before August of this year. Now I just have to await the frightening call setting up the actual date and time the procedure will be done.
For normal people this test is nothing worse than being forced to hold absolutely still for a little over 2 hours while they get radiological data on your body, both with and without contrast that is injected in your veins. But for people with claustrophobia like me, it is a terror filled time strapped down on a piece of unforgiving metal that is then fed into a tiny cylinder where the test is preformed. The horror!

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.

The prompt from https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/bedtime-stories/ is bedtime-stories. My mom used to try reading me the book that had the classic poem in it: “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. The only problem is I actually had it memorized at age two and a half! If she tried to cut the reading short, I would fill in what she was trying to skip out loud!
Drove her crazy. So she would switch to Dr. Suess’s “One Fish, Two Fish…” book took me about three days to learn that one! By the time I was three could read things for myself. My parents didn’t catch on until I read the comics at my grandparent’s house. That’s how I found out there wasn’t really a Santa Claus from reading Dennis the Menace.
Haven’t stopped reading ever since! Read all sorts of books. Even tried reading the dictionary once in grade school, because the teacher would not let me go downstairs to get a book from our school’s library. The dictionary sort of lacked a plot or decent characters. Only got through the letter “A”. Excuse me if I write something audacious for enjoyment.
The libraries I grew up around were lacking any new content. Even my text books were from back in the 60’s. I was born in 1973. My books shouldn’t be more than 10 years older than me! At least the history books covered the great depression, but after that time it was kinda sketchy coverage. Had the classics from Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Mark Twain, and Dickens. Also had an overflow of the junk reads like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.
Once I started dating my husband he used to sing me to sleep with music from decades past! I miss those types of bedtime stories.
