This isn’t exactly related to running or working out, but since my blog is geared towards individuals who struggle with their health and fitness, and possibly with chronic illness and disabilities, I think it will be relevant.
I just wanted to let people know that if you have a really expensive medication that you can’t afford, it’s worth a try to look on the drug company’s website and see if they have any discounts, coupons, or rebates.
Even if you don’t see anything on their website, try giving the drug manufacturer a call and see if they offer any financial assistance to help pay for your prescription.
My mom was really awesome and found a discount for my most expensive medication directly from the manufacturer’s website. I presented the discount card at Walgreens and saved SO much money on meds this month.
I just want people to know that if you look in the right places, there are people willing to help you out.
There have been a few frustrating mishaps in this last week, the most irritating of which was the late delivery of my beta blockers from my new pharmacy. I switched from my usual drug-store pharmacy because with mail order I’m able to save money and time by ordering a 90 day supply instead of 30 days.
The apparent downside to that is that the company doesn’t seem to care about delivering the drugs on time.
This week I’m grateful for the right words at the right time. I recently read a comment on a YouTube video that wasn’t intended for me but empowered me just the same. The commenter said that if someonehas a positive and important message to spread, it doesn’t matter if they received a degree for it or not.
About four or five years ago, when I was in the midst of my fight with cancer, I took up indoor gardening. I was always cold, so I always kept my room at at least 80 degrees (F) – perfect for planting something in the middle of winter.
I remember how my mostly unstructured days at home started to have an anchoring point. No matter what, I’d wake up and water my plants. If I was bored, I’d run over to the window and see if anything had sprouted yet.
For the first few days I was SO frustrated. I planted those stupid seeds FOREVER ago! Why haven’t they sprouted yet??
This one’s an easy read and hits 3 key points on the head. In particular, knowing WHY you are committing to the gym (or anything) is going to make it easier to keep going when you want to quit. Also, turning it into a lifestyle change as opposed to a fad or temporary hardship does wonders for the way you approach exercising.
