Prompt for the Day: “Nerve”

The people from the Daily Post group of Word Press must enjoy spying on other people’s lives since they chose the prompt for today as “Nerve” to inspire or creations for the day.

My Nerves are Messed Up

Both the physical nerves and the mental nerves.  Physically, my body is inflicted with a disease called multiple sclerosis.  Have had this disease basically since birth.  Went to the family doctor wth my first symptoms in grade school.  The idiot told my mom that I was making things up, there was no physical evidence to the sunburn feeling I was having on my stomach and legs.

Did not get a clearer picture of what was wrong with me until I left the state to attend college.  While there, went to a chiropractor for pains in my neck and back.  After visiting him for a year or two, he sent me to have an M.R.I. performed on my spine.  Got the results back and the doctor told me he could no longer be of any long term help since I either had spinal cancer or multiple sclerosis.  Wish it had been cancer, because I probably would have died by now!

On the mental nerve subject, I suffer from general anxiety now.  Being around unknown people makes me overly nervous.  Miss being in charge of huge networks like I used to be when I was able to work.  Made friends from all over the world by creating network connections for businesses.   But now that I am unemployed, I have lost my nerve.

Pease 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 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.
