Time Flies

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. 

I’m not looking for a cure. 
I’m not looking for a ‘feel better soon.’
I have chronic migraines.
I want you to know how bad the pain is.  Don’t underestimate what a sufferer goes through, even if you can’t see the illness.
I want you to know that I look normal but I’m not.
And I want you to know that the pain is so frequent and so severe, it’s literally a miracle that I can survive it at all. 
Understanding is what I want. 
Education is what I want.”
I don’t know what I’m doing with my life, but being in this much pain is not what I have in mind.
Hope those of you reading this are doing well. ❤

Our brains can be re-wired

Today I read this really interesting article on Neuroplasticity:

Jealous

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’s endless.

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.

So Tired

Migraines almost every day for the last week.

Relentless.

And I am so tired.

The pain has been driving me absolutely insane.

 

Anyone out there understand??
