Prompt for the Day: ” Mountain”

The diminutive people from the Daily Post division of Word Press would like for us to undertake an enormous project of using the word “Mountain” to create our assorted works of art.

Mountains in My Life

Literal,

Would have to be the ones found in the Rocky Mountain national park located up in Colorado.  Miss driving up there while we lived in the state for over seven glorious years.  Went skiing down the mountains there for the first time on skis in my life.  Had a blast!

Figurative,

Mountains are the ones caused by my health problems.  Was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis back in 1996.  Tried running from that fact for years through many different states of the U.S., but it always followed me.  The different medicines they have put me on to try to hide the problem have interrupted my life with devastating side effects.

One of the nastiest is the constant depression that has laterally made me try to commit suicide at least once!   Took me and my husband years to get over that issue that threatened our marriage together.  Took 4 moves to distance us from that nightmare.  We are both tired of running away from it!

No plans to ever relocate from our current handicap accessible home.  Basically, will take a natural disaster to remove me from this location!  Have decent neighbors here, readily accessible transportation, and decent internet connection available.  What more could we want?

Please Help Fight Evil 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!

Prompt for the Day: “Fleeting”

The people from the Daily Post group of Word Press did not expend too much thought when arriving at today’s prompt of “Fleeting“.  No long drawn out board meetings were required to select this glancing pass of a phrase!

Fleeting Life in Paradise

That is what I considered the seven years we lived in Colorado.  Had absolutely no problems finding my way around the area.  Could tell which way west was by looking where the mountains sat in relation to my position driving on the road.  If we were not happy with the temperature being too warm, we just drove up to a higher elevation!  There was snow up in Estes Park year round!  Drive even further up to the Rocky Mountain National Park where you can visit permafrost locations.  During the winter, parts of the park is unreachable due to snow and avalanche risks.

Got to enjoy skiing a few times.  Had great fun playing in the snow both on the mountain or in our front yard with the neighbor kids. Loved the neighbor’s pets.  One was a dog you would expect to be vicious, but he was a puppy at heart.  All you had to do was talk to him to let him know you were the ones outside he was hearing.  Was an escape artist, breaking out of his fence to go exploring.  One of our cats had a crush on the neighbor’s calico cat.  She was a friendly animal named Patches.

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.
