Migraine Day 7. AGAIN! I am holding on to my sanity, trying to survive with every fiber of my being. This pain is relentless and barely bearable.
Time for some baby steps to making a few changes in my life. I have to at least *try.* What I’m doing isn’t working for me.
So here it goes…
Making little dietary changes and little exercise changes each day will hopefully decrease my pain levels and medication usage. I don’t want to end up in the Emergency Room again, but the idea is shelved in the back of mind, just in case.
I hope everyone else is doing better out there. I wish the doctors had more answers and more *concrete* suggestions to help us with migraines. I’m definitely not giving up hope, but dang, WHY ISN’T THERE MORE RESEARCH?!?!
In other news, I left my job. I ended up *back* on medical leave for the last month and I just cannot continue. Everyone around me is immediately asking me, “So where will you work now?” NOWHERE! I need a break. I need to take some time to myself and re-evaluate. Even though I am fearful of this big change (I worked there for 5 1/2 years, on and off for 11 years!), I think my health needs to take priority right now.
I’m hangin in there, off the edge of a cliff… diggin’ my claws in, never giving up!
