I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted anything. Time goes too fast these days.
Even though the mind/body approach is wonderful, long-standing negative thinking patterns are hard to break. But I’m still trying.
I’ve been struggling almost daily with horrible migraines and I’m basically drained of most of my energy, most of the time. And depression is distorting my thoughts. Which is why it’s hard to post here. I don’t even really know what’s real sometimes.
I have doctors and therapists and medications and a support system, so I’ll get through this tough time.
Life is just really really hard.
I thought about posting this on my social media accounts, but I didn’t. I’ll post it here instead:
“I’m not lookin for sympathy.
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??
