Happy Tuesday, y’all! Surviving a Monday should make Tuesday seem easier, right? All I can say is, I sure as heck hope so because my day yesterday started off stressful. It was not anything that should have happened because I have been doing everything I needed to do regarding Gilenya, which is the medication I take for Multiple Sclerosis. I would not be as stressed if this medication was something affordable to a normal person, but this medication without the Gilenya Go Program would cost over $8,000 per month. This kind of price for a medication that is necessary to keep this unpredictable condition at bay is ludicrous.
After how stressful my week began, I am hoping today will be easier and far less stressful. Hopefully, my doctor’s office will get the things done they should have already done today and the medication I need will be shipped out to me. How was your day yesterday? I do hope your week started better than mine and that you have a great day today!
We made it through the hardest day of the week, so let’s hope the next few days go well for all of us. I would like to share a quote with y’all and hope that it helps you to view life in a better light. I really enjoyed this quote, so I hope it will bring a smile to your face. I think it is just a nice note to begin the second day of the week.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote offers you peace, and good thoughts for the day. I am looking forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

That’s a shocking price for your essential medication, Alyssa. I’ve heard that in many countries, you have to pay for medication. It’s not as if it was something you had a choice over. Do you have anything like a prescription card where you can pay off for your medication gradually. Even if that were the case, it would still, no doubt, be unaffordable. I’m glad that, at least for the time being, you can get this medication from the Gilenya Go Program. Over here, we can get free prescriptions if we are over 60, but the government are trying to scrap free prescriptions for retired people – typical of our government! I hope you can continue to get your vital medication through the program. Have a good rest of the week. Xx 💐💖

Thank you, Ellie! Unfortunately, this medication does not offer a prescription card. I am more than ready to get out of the states and go somewhere where healthcare is not terrible. I did not realize your government was getting as bad as the states. It is awful. Healthcare is a right and should be respected.
