Prompt for the Day: “Live to Eat”

The insensitive people at the Daily Press division of Word Press came up with to day’s prompt to fill our creative needs for the day of “Live to Eat“.  Then they included a statement followed by two inquiries:”Some people eat to live, while others live to eat. What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life?”

I Eat to Live

Make myself eat at least three meals a day.  If I fail to eat at least that much, I lose weight.  Losing weight means they will not be able to sedate me for the annual M.R.I.’s i must have to monitor my body’s brain and central nervous system.  This has to be completed to see if my multiple sclerosis is getting any worse.

Don’t see how it could currently get any worse, already get out breaks of optic neuritis in my eyes!  Good thing I know how to handle it when it happens, just start dosing myself with ibuprofen tablets every four hours and wear my eye patch on the affected eye.  Throw the weather related migraines into the mix and we have a grand old time!

Please Help Fight this Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist has put me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is 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 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.

Optic Neuritis (AGAIN)!

Optic neuritis is one of the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. I hate it! The only worse multiple sclerosis symptom is the feeling of vertigo. Vertigo makes you want to throw up because you feel like you are on the wave riddled sea during a horrible storm. If I do not take motion sickness medicine, start vomiting uncontrollably from vertigo. With optic neuritis, I simply have to cover the affected eye with a patch and take three ibuprofen pills every four hours.  Sleep also helps rest my eyes, so I take a lot of naps while suffering from the optic problem.

Attack this Time…

Might have been caused by the fish oil supplement that my eye doctor suggested I start taking for the problem of dry eyes that I have been suffering from for years.  Started taking half the suggested dose on Tuesday morning with my regular breakfast (bottle said best if taken with a meal).  Just tried contacting the neurologist’s office, but they are closed (Christmas Eve right now).  So I will just send the office an email asking for advice.  At least I figured out the problem was going on fairly early, like right after it started!  Last time it took several days of headaches for me to catch on to the ongoing problem.

Sleep also helps rest my eyes, so I take a lot of naps while suffering from the optics.  It beats getting the double vision.  Used to have that happen all the time when I was still able to drive.  Would try to avoid the vehicle that my eyes told me was the closest to my car.  The amazing fact is that I was never involved in an accident while having double vision!
