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??

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

is

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!)
