Prompt for the Day: “Connection”

The writing geniuses with the Daily Post division of Word Press want us crafters, to design our works around today’s prompt of “Connection“.  They included a single ingenious sentence of command-“Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.”

Made me think of Conjunction

There used to be a short blip of educational kids shows on television called SchoolhouseRock when I was little about conjunctions.  The song went “Conjunction, junction, what’s your function“.  Great memories from that show.

Technically a conjunction is just one type of a connection.  The connections I am most concerned with here lately is how on earth can I get to doctor’s appointments on time considering I have not been able to drive for years.  There is a service provided by the state of Minnesota for handicapped people called Metro Mobility.

This coming Wednesday will be my first attempt at using this service.  Having my husband take the trip with me to help me stay calm.  Tend to be very anxious around strangers.  Getting car sick is normal for me, so plan on taking an empty barf bag with me just in case I need to use it!  Will be taking my motion sickness medicine before I leave both times (once before we leave to go, then again before the return trip home).  I can get motion sick just by sitting in my stationary recliner.  Has to do with multiple sclerosis which I have had since I was little.

Please Help Fight Destructive Disease

The medicine my neurologist has prescribed for me for 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 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.
