I Can Do This

Thank you Pinterest!  Cheerful encouragements with the “don’t worry, be happy” and sappy sayings are going to pull me through this month of free fall.  Today was the best day in a long time, simply because I made it for twenty four hours without head pain!  This happens a few times a month, but on this month it was the first day where I didn’t have to worry about head pain coming on without a magic pill to wipe it away.

So I took encouragement from this respite and even though I couldn’t venture out to do anything (my back is still out), I did liven up my Choose Happiness Board on the Pinterest app.  I also made a promise to myself that I’d go to the club and get into the practice of just going again – a shower, a nice jacuzzi soak and a then another cleansing shower.  This will get me back in the swimming pool sooner than later.  I have missed my zen swims.

I can’t be afraid to go out, and I have to stop being on guard for every little thing that may set a migraine off.  Whatever will be will be.  If the migraines happen, I know the doctors can’t take all the medications away from me.  Yes, there will be less of what I took before, and I’d be okay with that.  I have to be.  I don’t think there’s a choice anymore.  But I do want to be able to have some rescue meds for the purpose of living life.  That is all.

My frame of mind is better than it’s been in awhile, poor January not withstanding.  It’s never been my favorite month.  But I am determined to get through this now, and I only have three weeks left till the end of this medication withholding trial.  Life isn’t over. 


I want to go back here and take other trips without worrying about getting migraines. 

Always seek treatment from a physician before undertaking any changes in your health routines or plans.  This blog is just my opinions and experiences.

Just trying to navigate a life circumvented by chronic migraines. Sometimes I write about managing with those, but at other times I am prone to deviate a bit.
