BORED? READ!





  BORED? READ!

                                                                 

Don't need shoes? Not much of a yarn person? I'm not judging.
The best, VERY BEST way to combat boredom is to READ. Sure, I have books for sale, just look below, but I'm not the only fabulous author out there. Even if you are not necessarily inclined to pick up a book just for fun, there is no better way to keep your mind active and your hands free from mischief. Charge up your tablet or go old fashion (the best ) way and open that first page to allow yourself to fall into another world. 

You don't necessarily have to buy anything (Credit cards are safe). I'm certain you have some form of the written word at your beck and call. Have a Bible? EVERY mode of writing is found right there: horror, romance, historical, crime, reality, mystery.

How about meeting an author up close and personal from your tablet or computer screen? It's happening all over the globe. My publishing house family is right in the thick of things. Check it out.

Headline authors also offer FaceBook readings.

Several years ago my mother gifted me with a Kindle Fire on 
which I own a variety of titles. Recently I updated to a larger, 
fancier device and am still trying to figure out how to transfer 
previous purchases. Regardless of what I read on this new "toy", 
I am reading nonetheless. 
The point is, reading is a wonderful way to kill time.

If you are desperate for reading suggestions, I can help. 
Of course I want to be your favorite author, but I'm not
 necessarily my own favorite author.

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

Bored? Are you a couch potato?

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done.

As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).

 The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can further investigate Coben with viewings of The Stranger. I might take a break …

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.  

I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble.

I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a day for th…

Writing an Appeal

I am looking for advice. Some  of you know that my insurance denied any assistance with acquiring the Walk Aide L300; mostly on the basis of a lack of clinical evidence that that the device is not necessary to the diagnosis of MS. 

I am now filing an appeal and am looking for suggestions/advice/prior experience in the appeal process.Thus far, my rough draft is equal in volume to a short story. "Cause, y'know, I like to write.

If  there are words of wisdom out there (I know there are), please share with me. If you have attempted to leave comments here in the past and failed, that issue is fixed (Thank you, Rebecca), so I implore you to spread your words here

Thanks in advance.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Lisa
