This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Mondays group is “Remedy.” From this week’s instructions (from Cartale):
This week we will cure ourselves with remedy. Remedy as a definition is: Something, as a medicine, that cures or relieves a disease or bodily disorder.
The guideline for this macro task, is the one defined above. It can consist of folk and non-Western remedies. Possible subjects could be: pills, syringes, bandages, soup, honey-lemon tea, acupuncture, yoga etc. If you like, you can gladly share a story on what the particular remedy does for you.
This week’s Macro Mondays theme of “Remedy” made me think of Dominic’s medication called Quillivant. After five years of trying different ADHD medications, we finally found one that worked well for him without any negative side effects. Seeing your child struggle with impulse control is difficult, especially when you’ve tried years and years of other non-medication related interventions. Hearing positive reports from his teachers, his peers, and his behavioral specialist a week after starting this medication, I truly believe Quillivant is the remedy for his impulsivity. It has been out of stock off and on all year and he didn’t use it much this summer. Our insurance wasn’t covering it for a while and our out of pocket was over $250/month. Now that our deductible and out of pocket expenses have been met, it was $25 this month and only a 45-minute drive to find a pharmacy that had it in stock. What a blessing.
