Hello and welcome to my migraine journey!
For some time now I have been walking this journey with the help of close friends and family, but have decided to share my journey with the greater public. My hope is that along the way, I may be able to help someone else. I am a “helper” by nature. Anytime I take one of the many personality tests/career tests, the most glaring result each time is that I should work in the “helping” profession.; whatever that means! So I am utilizing my strong “people person” skills to help other people who may be in similar situation. This blog is to serve as a way to communicate my journey, and what things have helped me along the way. My hope is to create a community of others in my situation, who can form together in a type of sisterhood against chronic migraine and pain.
As many of my friends know, I am an complete open book, which can be a bad or good thing depending upon the situation, in this particular situation, I believe that being utterly and completely honest is what others in my situation want to know. Individuals with chronic illness and maladies, are researchers by necessaity. Constantly looking for the next “tool” that could be helpful to their unique situation. That’s the other thing, EACH and every one of us in this situation are like a snowflake, completely different. So one person may have great results with treatment XYZ, while others, could not. And what I want to get across through this blog, is THAT IS OK! Its about finding what works for you! Please feel free to contact me via email or through my Instagram page at any point…I would love to hear for you all!
Now, let this journey BEGIN!
