Prompt for the Day: “Misplaced”

The forgetful people at the Daily Post division of Word Press apparently accidentally lost something so they selected the word “Misplaced” for today’s inspiration for our creations.

I Misplace Things Frequently

Would lose my head if it were not permanently attached atop my shoulders!  Keep my cell phone with me at all times, since it is my life line if I fall and can’t get back up (am permanently wheelchair bound due to multiple sclerosis).

Lose pencils and erasers periodically just to drive myself more crazy than I already am.  Have standard places where I keep things that I MUST have available.  If those items like my medicines are moved, I panic!  They claim that changing things up in a life is good for a person, but I do not respond well to change.  Makes me think I have forgotten or mislaid something.

Sometime during our move away from Colorado back in 2004, I misplaced the marble collection I have had since I was little, you know the glassies, the swirl ones, and the plainer ones.  Guess I can truly say “I lost my marbles!”  My mom even sent me a single marble with a poem attached that comments on those like us who have lost their marbles are not any stranger than the rest of the world.

Please Help Fight Malicious 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.
