Prompt for Today: “Healthy”

The inspiring people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Healthy” for us to create our daily works of art based on it.

My Healthy Goals

I make sure I eat at least 3 decent meals each day that include the necessary fiber and fruits and vegetables.  Considering the fact fruits and vegetables are my favourite foods other than my daily small chocolate snack at 1 PM, have no problem meeting that daily requirement.

Get my daily exercise in by lifting my wheelchair in the early morning while I still have both the strength and coordination to do so.  (Hey, face it a weight is a weight!)  Water is my drink of choice, keep bottles of it stashed all throughout the house, since the water from our facets tend to have too much lead in them for our tastes.

Take the vitamins and other supplements suggested by my doctors each day.  Add that to all the medicines I take to help control my multiple sclerosis, I might as well invest in a pharmaceutical company!

Play with the cat we adopted from a humane society on the floor regularly.  Makes me move a little more than I would force myself to do otherwise.  He is also excellent at helping people fall asleep when we would rather not!

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.
