I have not written here in a very long time, but people keep showing up to read. so, I thought I would do an update.

I have been feeling fairly well. The tops of my feet hurt a lot. Feels like it is the tendons or like I am being stabbed by a pencil.

today, I see the doctor. Except for the feet and a few bumps o n my face, I am fine. Physically that is.

My husband is about to be laid off and that means no more insurance. I am fortunate to have medicare. But, that does not cover medicine. I have been looking at online pharmacies, to see if I can find better prices. One of my medicines cost $400.00 a month.

Life is about to change for me. A huge change. We will have to give up our home and move to our farm. We can sustain ourselves there but, I do not know if I can keep up the work. My daughter and her family will be moving there with us and that will help. They are homesteaders and can work the land better than I.

So, that is my update. Physically...not so bad...mentally...falling apart.

I am very sorry to hear about your husband being layed off from work. I know at these current times with the economy and the job market, our illness just seems to be the icing on the cake. I wanted to let you know that you should contact Medicare and see what they can do for your prescriptions. I have some Medicare benefits and they sent me some paperwork regarding prescription coverage, but I didn't pay any attention because I'm covered through my husband's military insurance for that. I pray that things go well for you and that GOD's blessings flow onto you.
