Prompt for the Day-“Money for Nothing”

The money-centered people at the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with the prompt for the day of “Money for Nothing“.  They made several statements with a question or two thrown in for good measure: “If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.”

They might have been fans of 1985 music

Back in that time period, Dire Straits did a song with the same title it is included in this post- Dire Straits – Money For Nothing music video.

My ultimate dream job would have been to be an astronaut, but I am too short.  So I settled for the next best job I could hold, that of a network engineer.  Got to manage the networks of major fortune 500 companies located throughout the midwestern USA.

My mind controlled where the data went and how fast / secure it was on the way to the destination.  During the year 2000 panic, got to quiet the fears of major banking companies that as long as they made sure their networking equipment had all their updates applied, they would make it through without as much as a single blip in the systems.

Then in the late 2000’s my health started to rapidly decline due to a disease known as multiple sclerosis starting to act up aggressively.

Please Help Fight this Evil 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.
