Bloody Mess!

The big toe on my right foot was really itching bad as I started getting ready for bed.  Made the mistake of reaching down to scratch it.  A hangnail got caught in the process and ripped off.  Blood started gushing out of my toe!

I have a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  My neurologist has me on a medicine called Tysabri to help me keep a minimal level of coordination.  That was not what caused the blood gush, the Heparin they use to close of my port to my veins is a blood thinner.  Seems now when I get a sever injury (ripped hang nail) blood sprays everywhere.   The blood loss left me feeling extremely drained when it happened last night, so I just made sure my foot was elevated as I slept.

Had to clean up the blood trail on the bedroom door and the floor both after getting up this morning. Toe is still throbbing, but at least when I took my shower this morning there was absolutely no blood loss!  Good thing is I am not grossed out by the sight of blood or it would have been even worse of a disaster.

Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , 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 (manufacturing drug company) 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.  To contribute to the fund, click on the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes

Optic Neuritis!

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 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!

Prompt for the Day: “Non-Regional Diction”

The people at the Daily Post group of Word Press are trying to make me feel critical of the way I talk!  The prompt for the day that they chose was “Non-Regional Diction“.  They also included the following sentence setting our overall direction-“Write about whatever you’d like, but write using regional slang, your dialect, or in your accent.”

Y’all can laugh all you want…

Have used the expression y’all since I was a child.  Also measure distances by number of fields away.  (You have to ignore the fact that fields are never the same size, but that is how I grew up in southern Illinois).  Grew up playing in the creek, but it was a “Mud creek” tributary running through our long pasture.

Last meal of the day was referred to as supper.  Mid day meal was lunch.   The guys had to have snacks available (cookies, piece of cake, etc.) in the afternoon.  You don’t want to be around a male who wants a snack and cannot find one!

Prompt for the Day- “The Power of Touch”

A contributor to the Daily Press portion of Word Press came up with a touchy -felly type of prompt to kindle our imagination’s flames: “The Power of Touch“. They included a few sentences and then asked a single question “Textures are everywhere: The rough edges of a stone wall. The smooth innocence of a baby’s cheek. The sense of touch brings back memories for us. What texture is particularly evocative to you?”

Have very sensitive skin

Personally, have very sensitive skin, so detest anything scratchy feeling.  Lace of any type is a definite problem!  Even the use of a simple band aide causes problems for me due to the adhesive used to attach it to my skin.  Forced to resort to gauze pads attached by paper tape.  Have to be careful about which moisturizers I apply anywhere on my body.  Currently have settled on using organic first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.

Went through many different products before having this recommended to me by a friend.  Most of the ones out on the market as being safe for sensitive skin contain chemicals that cause an allergic reaction after subjecting you skin to it repeatedly!

Two favorite textures

Love the feeling of my husband’s touch.  Also like the feeling of the fur of most animals.  Have had a cat before who’s fur was too coarse for me to like petting him too much.  Preferred the feeling of his runt brother’s fine black fur.  Had a dog as a kid that I loved to pet.  She was a very protective guard dog for our farm, while she lived.  Unfortunately, she passed away peacefully under our cherry tree.  She was my first pet as a kid.

Post of the Day: “Truth Serum”

The twisted minds at the Daily Post division of Word Press came up with the writing prompt of “Truth Serum” for today.  They also added the following question – “You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?”

I would like to try to have my husband take it.  That way I could learn the true reason why he is refusing to return to the chiropractor.  Know his back still bothers him, so why won’t he go visit the man for an adjustment?  Is he that worried about the cost?

Considering the amount of money we waste on my medicines to help me survive with my multiple sclerosis, why shouldn’t we spend some to help his back?  Just doesn’t make any good sense to me!  Maybe I am just not looking at the issue in the correct perspective of life.  Or am I just completely insane?  Who really knows.

Guess I think most people are honest in general.  Just goes to prove how naive I truly am in today’s world.  Thinking it is safe to trust other human beings with out knowing if they have an ulterior motives!

Should we stock pile a mess of this truth serum to gain access to the minds of criminals.  We might be able to prevent terrorism this way!  Or are we taking away their personal rights to their own thoughts, no matter how demented they may be?  Not a decision I am either qualified or willing to make.  Prefer my simple illusions of a honest world.  Was taught to tell the truth at all times.   Still abide by my upbringing!

Prompt for the Day: “Singin’ in the Rain”

Prompt for the day from the authors ensconced in their warm dry places of work is “Singing in the Rain“.  They added a few words to help set the mood for our writing adventures of the day “Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.”.

Listening to a good thunderstorm tends to make me feel sleepy.  A gentle rain just makes me need to urinate!  Even just a normal day for me is ruled by the current weather conditions.  My body can’t take the varying pressures of the day.  Extreme pressure changes effects the way my body literally feels.  Minor high fronts don’t bother me.  Extreme ones can trigger a killer migraine headache in me.  Lows don’t tend to make that much of a difference.  Switching from an acute high then dropping down into a period of intense low pressure can set off a major headache storm.

Throw my multiple sclerosis into the mix and you can envision the troubles the weather gives me!  Used to love playing out in the rain (when there was no lightening) when I was little.

Playing in my fenced in yard with my dog when both me and my dog were much younger, was always fun as long as I didn’t track mud into the house.  My mom would be in the house with my little brother, while Cindy (dog) and I would play outside so my mom could put my brother down for a nap.  If I made the mistake of tracking the out side in to the house, would be in big trouble.

Miss playing with Cindy now that she has passed on while I was in upper grade school.  She was my protector!  You could not leave the yard with me in the vehicle unless my mom told Cindy it was all right for the car to leave with me in it!  She used to walk with me to the end of the lane where the driveway met the highway.  Weather didn’t matter to her.

Prompt for the Day: “Trick Questions”

The prompt for the day from the wizardry community of the Daily Post division of Word Press is “Trick Questions“.  They made a statement then asked one in-depth question:”A Pulitzer-winning reporter is writing an in-depth piece — about you. What are the three questions you really hope she doesn’t ask you?”

Thought the fact that they mentioned the reporter was female was definitely a favorable sign.  Most other writers generally do not lower themselves to admit a person of the female gender has written a good work!

Hope she doesn’t ask why I left the state of Colorado willingly back at the end of 2004.  Should have put up a bigger fight about leaving my doctor and neurologist’s care.  We also left all the friends I had made with our neighbors and former coworkers with out much of a way to contact them.  Still miss them all very much.

Also hope she doesn’t ask why I did not pursue a lawsuit against the employer I made the mistake of trying to work for in Superior, WI.  They blatantly discriminated against me being in and out of my wheelchair, due to my multiple sclerosis.  Without access to the medicines from my neurologist, I was in constant pain.

Hope she doesn’t ask me why I wanted to end my life.  Ended up calling a friend to say “Good bye”, because I was going to kill myself.  She had me give her the address where we were living now and told me to write a letter to my husband saying good bye to him.  Considering I had already started the letter, just finished it off.

Took the letter and placed it on the kitchen table, when someone started pounding on the front door.  Stupidly, I answered it, not knowing who it could be.  Turned out to be a local sheriff, who my friend had gotten in touch with.  He had me grab a change of clothes and stuff I would need at the mental facility he was forcing me to get admitted in to.
