I've had a rough few weeks so needed to take a break from the blogging world and do some self-care. My migraines got a bit out of hand and work was slammed. I was exhausted by the time I got home and didn't have the energy to blog. I'm just now beginning to feel like myself again and ready to remerge from the cocoon of my comfy chair.
Thankfully, the recent increase in migraines coincided with a visit to my migraine specialist so she hooked me up with a round of powerful steroids, an increase in my botox injections, and an adjustment to my migraine preventative, so I'm hopeful things are headed in the right direction once again.
On another positive note, my job will also be keep me an extra day through the rest of the year so...I think I'll have to keep my blogging schedule the way it is now. I'll post either on Fridays or over the weekend. No more Monday posts for this chick.
I saw this on Facebook a few weeks ago and it really resonated with me:
Sometimes life throws us a few curveballs at once. Sometimes those curveballs hit us right upside our heads.
- My migraines aren't going the way I hoped but I've got a backup plan so there's always hope.
- Devin was letting his slips get inside his head but he's on a better track too.
- I may have to face the fact that it's time to cut ties with certain family members and that hurts my heart. No optimistic twist on this one.
I love me some Modern Family!
And who doesn't love Beverly Goldberg from The Goldbergs? She's hilarious!
Here's to a better week everyone!
M is for Migraines
I’ve had them for twenty-five plus years.
I travel five hours each way to see a specialist every three months.
I had a local neurologist too. I dumped him.
He ramped up doses of medications rather than finding the reason behind the migraine.
My specialist discovered an underlying auto-immune disease that may be the cause.
I take herbal supplements.
I’m on a break from prescription medications except for triptans to treat as they occur.
Some days the triptan works.
Most days they don't.
Migraines hit every other day now.
Time to revisit a preventative treatment medication again.
My liver has healed.
Everyone thinks they know that one little tid bit of information I don’t about my migraines. They read how to CURE them.
There is no cure.
They’re just trying to help.
I politely smile and nod my head in the right places.
I’ll listen to my specialist’s advice.
I pay her good money.
But my life doesn’t.
Life is good.
I have a great husband.
Live close to the beach.
I have a roof over my head. Heat in the winter.
A/C in the summer.
Food on the table.
Money in my pocket, even if it jingles when I walk.
At least there's something to jingle.
Life is good even with migraines.
What makes life good for you?
