Happy Friday! It really is a happy Friday!
As you guys know I am so lucky to have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Oh what a joy its been. It is a battle and one that keeps me popping pills right and left that will never cure me. There is no cure, I am blessed with it for life! Nice!
Top that off with another diagnosis I was blessed with for another incurable disease, not only am I a Debtgirl I am actually a pretty sick girl.
I will not bore you with all the gory details, some things should remain semi-private.
However… I have really spectacular news. I have to share.
Out of the blue, I was approved for a medication that does in fact cure one of my diseases.
Finally a cure! Its very expensive, to the tune of over 1000.00 A PILL!
You read that right, $100,000 for the full treatment!
I have to pay $5.00. FIVE BUCKS!
My doctor fought long and hard and I had given up hope, but he and the girls in his office worked for years to get this blessing for me.
I started the treatment last night. I hope to say that in 12 weeks this disease will be a part of my past and I can move forward less sick.
I do share that my health is always on my mind!! One less thing to worry about. Now you know why.
My mom wished for this treatment for me and I cant help but think she knows it is finally happening!
Sometimes good things do happen.
