Prompt for Today: “Carefree”

The blissful people at the Daily Post group of Word Press want to observe our art works based on the word “Carefree“.

Considering My Health Problems

I am definitely not ever carefree!  Along with the scoliosis and asthma I was diagnosed with as a child, add the hideous disease called multiple sclerosis and the sub pubic catheter I had surgically inserted in my body before starting my first dose of the disease modifying medicine in 2010 (has caused way too many urinary tract infections to count) tend to be constantly sick!

Just out of curiosity, how often do you end up coming down sick?

If you would like to offer any helpful advice on the subject of avoiding illness, simply fill out the form below:

All advice will be read by me personally.  Thank you for all your help in this continuously on going problem!

I always follow my doctor’s suggestions to the letter and finish all prescriptions completely.   Flush my nose out with saline as often as I can.  Have a deviated septum, so neti pots do not work for me, unfortunately.  There is no better way to invite illness to reside in your body, than not to finish medicines prescribed by your doctors!  Never share your medications with other people even within your family.  What works for you may make another person deathly ill!

Please Help Fight Truly Evil 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.
