Prompt for the Day: “Bedtime”

The sleepy people at the Daily Post group of Word Press could only dream of reaching “Bedtime” for today’s prompt to inspire or creations.

Now I am Sleepy

Thanks a lot you guys!  Have a full day still in front of me to go through before I get a chance for any more sleep.

Been a nerve racking day so far! Got a pre-op physical set up with the office of my primary care physician.  That was the easy part of the whole nightmare.  Once that was obtained for later this month had to delve into getting the dreaded M.R.I. set up like I promised my neurologist’s assistant I would get finished sometime before August of this year.  Now I just have to await the frightening call setting up the actual date and time the procedure will be done.

For normal people this test is nothing worse than being forced to hold absolutely still for a little over 2 hours while they get radiological data on your body, both with and without contrast that is injected in your veins. But for people with claustrophobia like me, it is a terror filled time strapped down on a piece of unforgiving metal that is then fed into a tiny cylinder where the test is preformed.  The horror!

Please Help Fight Dreadful 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.

Prompt for the Day: “Contrast”

The people who want us to notice the contrast between others at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose to us the word “Contrast” to inflame our creations for today.

I prefer to Point out Our Similarities!

Doesn’t everyone require oxygen to breath?  Do not know of too many people who can literally breathe under water!  If you find an example of this anomaly, please share this discovery with the greater world population.  Maybe the feat is one that we all could learn to replicate.

Shouldn’t all kids learn to play with others of different races?  While they are still young they might be able to overcome the discriminations that plague their adult counter parts by setting new examples for them to replicate.  I grew up in a small rural area that had absolutely no people from different races in it other than the mean white descendants of mostly German people.  Had to be exposed to others for the first time at scholarly competitions.  Got along just fine with all the young people from other races.  My father was not too happy that I had made friends who were raised by parents from other countries who had immigrated to the US.  Went ahead and kept in contact with my new friends, anyway!

Prompt for the Day: “Handwriting”

Once again the spies from the Daily Post group of Word Press selected the prompt for the day of “Handwriting“.

My Handwriting

Have had poor handwriting since I was little!  Even as far back as kindergarten, my writing and coloring received negative marks from teachers.  Failed to color  within the lines they said.  Hated conforming even if I could have!  Could trace my writing problems back to my father.  The apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree.

I put hours of effort into improving my handwriting skills.  Even tried taking up calligraphy!  Wasn’t any good at that either.  So I taught myself how to type before turning in a report in 4th grade!  Was fed up with loosing points due to my “sloppy” handwriting!

Have been typing everything since!  Once I was finally given the diagnoses of multiple sclerosis after leaving home for college, things began to make more sense.  The “handwriting was on the walls” so to speak.  Explained why I fell so often and many other problems.

Now the disease has taken over my fine motor skills to the point that the only other one besides myself that can interpret my writing is my husband.  Since I have loved the art of crafting works of words as long as I can remember, I now type them so they can be read by the rest of the world!  Blogging is a daily habit for me an ever day that I do not have some sort of other appointment filling my time.

Prompt for the Day: “Colorful”

The people at the Daily Post division of Word Press came up with the word “Colorful” to inspire us to make extremely interesting works for the day.

As a Color Blind Person

I will interpret this word to mean colorful acts.  The most colorful acts I have seen lately are the shenanigans perpetrated by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) group.  Guessing us lowly whites’ lives don’t matter, or the native American Indians, or any other people inhabiting this planet!

Am so TIRED of hearing about how they may have used to been slaves.  Funny, but doing a little research (Ah, more exhausting back breaking work!) led me to uncover the fact that the first slaves brought to the USA where owned by black people.  Who are the guilty ones now?

Everyone in the US has the right to a FREE education.  Yes, you have to do a little studying to graduate from a completely costless high school with your personal diploma.  Once you have that document securely in hand, you can apply for a JOB!  From there you can make yourself even more attractive to perspective employers by obtaining a degree from a college or trade school.  Once you have the degree from a trade school or college, the future is yours to write for the rest of the world to see!

Prompt for the Day: “Frivolous”

The carefree people of the Daily Post division of Word Press stumbled across the prompt for today of “Frivolous“.

No Time for Frivolous Things

Wake up each morning with a set goal in mind.  Get dressed, take my medicines, feed the cat, lay out clothes for the next day, then drink breakfast.  Once that is finished, settle down to complete a Fill-It-In puzzle book page.  (Helps keep my handwriting more readable for my husband.)

Then I retreat to the office in our house where my laptop is located.  Since the only ones who can read my writing these days are myself and my husband, I type my words out for the rest of the world to read.  Lost my writing ability along with the rest of my coordination to a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  Lost my ability to walk as well, am now confined to a wheelchair to be able to get around in the world.

Am lucky enough to have been qualified as permanently handicapped which gives me access to a service here in St. Paul known as Metro Mobility.  They allow me to be picked up from our house and driven to my appointments when needed.  In theory also is used it to go to other places like the library.

Prompt from yesterday: “Footsteps”

The reminiscent people from the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with yesterday’s prompt of “Footsteps“.

Made me Think of a Song

I remembered from when I was little playing on the radio.  Came across a poem that had the lyrics I remembered from back then by Mary Stevenson in 1936.  There have been many releases by various singers of this poem set to music, but they all were females.  The release I remembered was a male artist.

After a little more research came across another link to a song by Edgel Groves.  Listened to it and it turned out to be the song I remembered.  Here it is “Footprints in The Sand“!  Remember riding with my mom in the car while the song by Mr. Groves played on the AM/FM radio.

Sand and I are no longer good friends.  Hate the way it bogs my wheelchair down.  Also do not like when it gets tracked all over the house.  Reminds me too much of clean cat litter.  Granted it beats dirty used cat litter!

Prompt for the Day: “Fearless”

The brave people working at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose “Fearless” as the prompt for the day to cause us to create inspirational works of art.

Am a Chicken Now!

With all the problems I have survived in my life, I am no longer as brave as I was back when I was a network engineer in Colorado!  There I could face the CEO’s of major companies since I was able to fix their networking problems with the help of the team of people I was with.  I had the router knowledge they needed to move their data safely all over the world!

When my husband and I relocated to Wisconsin back in 2004, I basically ended up losing my mind.  Was living with excruciating pain in my legs from lack of my medicines that I used to get from my doctors back in CO.  Tried finding employment there, but no one wanted an engineer.  Tried working for a retail company that failed to follow the ADA laws.

Ended up trying to commit suicide.  With that incident, all my computer knowledge disappeared as well.  Can no longer face people now like I used to be able to do so easily.

Am no longer able to write legibly, so I type so I and others can read my works.  Started blogging using my laptop to keep my language skills from vanishing as well.
