The Mind/Body Approach to Migraine

My wish:

I wish I had heard about this sooner.

Wish I had read the books years ago.

Wish I had been taught the mind/body approach before I tried all the meds that failed.

I wish I knew then what I know now.

I’m finally starting to handle my attacks with a different approach. And it’s starting to make a difference. It’s taken me many months… lots of practice… lots of books and articles… and it might be paying off! At least a little bit, for the moment.

I just wanted to take a moment, and write something positive here. Because I feel hopeful. For real. And that is so nice!

Schedule

Today’s tool for helping curb depression symptoms= A SCHEDULE!

Here is a link to describe the Daily Activity Schedule from the book I’m reading called “Feeling Good:”

Recently, I’ve been floundering, not knowing what to do with my time.  So last night before I went to bed, I made A PLAN.  Nothing too crazy or ambitious starting out. Mostly little things. And you know? I do feel a little better. I am surprised at how easy is was to stick to a schedule today. And it feels nice, like I accomplished something.

Depression

I am re-reading the book “Feeling Good” in an attempt to curb my depressive symptoms.

Depression is making life very difficult right now.

Hopefully I will have more to share soon.

I hope that if you are reading this, you are taking good care of yourself. You deserve it.
