Today I read this really interesting article on Neuroplasticity:
Sorry, here’s a rant for you today:
What is life like when you’re normal?
What’s it like, to not be in pain every week of your life?
I’ve had chronic migraines since I was about 14 years old.
I feel like I never had a chance to have a life. My teen years weren’t normal. Missing school all the time, endless doctor appointments, trying every medical treatment available, taking so much medication.
How am I 31 years old and still dealing with this pain?
It comes and goes… even when it goes away, it always comes back.
I look around at all the people in my life, and I know we all suffer in different ways… but I’m jealous.
I hate this chronic migraine life right now.
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??
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.
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!)
