So Tired

Migraines almost every day for the last week.


And I am so tired.

The pain has been driving me absolutely insane.


Anyone out there understand??



One Hour at a Time

Migraines are kicking my booty right now.

I am tired of it.

It is a neurological, physical, mental, emotional, and psychological disease. It messes with everything!

At this point, all I can do for myself is to try to be a cheerleader. Tell myself that I am a Warrior Woman for dealing with this pain so often. It is chaos and it is unpredictable.

One day at a time.

One hour at a time.

(Also…I have an appointment with a specialist in a month–a new doctor, yay! Maybe he will have some fresh ideas. Insurance came through, yay!)

Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone reading this. ❤



3/28/18 Thoughts

Things I am contemplating today:

-What is the difference between taking a little break from the outside world vs. isolating yourself?

I’m not sure about this one. I get super antsy when I am stuck at home, so I try to convince myself that it’s just a little break, no big deal. But I also don’t want to go too far… isolate myself and fall into a hibernation/cave mentality.

-Which vitamins/supplements are worth the money, and am I taking them at the right time of day and with/without food correctly?

I’m experimenting right now.  An article popped up about this randomly, and I read that magnesium is better at night (supposedly).  So I am switching to see if taking it at a different time will help.



Pain in Paradise?

Once upon a time, I wondered: Will migraines follow me on vacation to Hawaii?

I am now back from the island paradise…

and I have my answer.

That answer


yes. 😦

But when the migraine went away,

I was on vacation in Hawaii. 🙂

So that’s the roller-coaster of my life.

(Shout out to my amazing boyfriend who took me on a birthday dream vacation and also took care of me when I didn’t feel good!)
