Highlights: My Migraine Life 2019

highlights: my migraine life 2019

There are many highlights in 2019. The year seemed to slip by and looking back, I did a whole lot! I came into this year as a “year of yes” mentality with migraine advocacy and it really paid off! I’m so proud of what I accomplished and couldn’t be able to do it without My Migraine Lifers.

Looking back at the year is often hard to picture. As a teacher, I see the year start and end with the school calendar. When I look back, I see events as “last year” when in fact 2019 is both kindergarten and 1st grade, 2nd and 3rd grade and two classes I taught in “different years.”

Overall, it’s a year I am proud of. I put 100% into my job as a mom, wife, teacher and migraine advocate. I stepped outside of my box and pushed outside of my comfort zone. It’s a reminder of how hard I am working and how many lives I am changing with that work! I often feel under appreciated, under paid and my health is under construction. But a look back forces me to look forward. What I face ahead of me looks uncertain. I’m starting the year with my sights on what’s going to make ME feel better.

What’s going to make you feel better in the New Year?

    This is a great thing to do and really helps to look at the good things (especially when you’re having a down day or days). Such a powerful woman to do all these despite the pain.
