My wife has just been diagnosed with a vary rare skin disease called Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris (PRP). It is not know what causes it, and there is no know cure. It started several months ago, when her face turned bright red. Now it has progressed to an ugly orange rash all over her body. The skin on the palms of her hands and her feet is starting to become thick dry and cracked. It is sometimes treatable, with a drug called soriatane (Acitretin), but this drug can have serious side effects. From what we have learned so far it will eventually go ito remission, after three to four years when treated with soriatane. The problem is the soriatane is too expensive. My co pay after insurance is about $500 per month. (Total cost with out insurance is roughly $2000.)
Were not sure what we will do yet, we are still researching the side effects of the drug, and looking into alternative treatments. I found out tonight that I can by the same drug in Canada for $300, and that is with no insurance. This tells me that the American drug companies are getting rich off of poor sick people. Shame on them!!
After what happened with my mother-in-law last month I believe in prayer and divine intervention, so please send them my way.
There is no such thing as a gun accident.
Irresponsible gun owners cause so-called gun accidents.
