We Doctor my Dog and She Doctors Me

vet pet clinic

In my house, we doctor my dog and she doctors me……

This is going to be a short and sweet post. I’ve been sick since Christmas and my brain is feeling less than creative. In fact, it’s down right stuffy, pained, exhausted, a bit sad, stressed and frustrated.

So I thought I’d share a fur baby and girl baby story that I think many of you will appreciate….

As I sat with a sinus infection, while experiencing side effects from new meds and my son being sick with constant meltdowns, I watched my daughter “doctor up” my dog yesterday.

All she wanted from Santa was a pet vet clinic, she loves animals! I watched my dog wait in the waiting room (yes, that’s my SensaCalm weighted blanket on the couch that I have been hibernating under while I’m sick!)

Then she was seen by the doctor

That evening I missed a big traditional family dinner. As I sat in my dark room, my dog held my hand and kept me company for hours.

The head pain of migraine is really extreme! All of the other things really suck! And there are a lot of other things (body aches, nausea, cold hands/feet/nose, etc)! One of the hardest things is being alone and missing out. It’s really hard!

My dog is more than a dog, especially during these times. She is my sanity and a soul that is literally by my side during dark times. Anyone who has cried holding their pet can understand the depths of this bond.

I’m so proud that my daughter is such an avid animal lover. She gives and receives love in the biggest way and has the biggest heart. Seeing her show the love and compassion is something really special! ❤️❤️

Anyone else spending extra time with their fur baby being sick this Winter break?

Am I the only one fighting being sick while having sick children?

Radiance Diffuser and Master Aromatherapist Kit Review

  I  received* the Radiance diffuser and Master Aromatherapist kit to review.  It has been a gift that my whole family enjoys.  The interesting thing about having chronic migraine is that smells are very personal and a constantly evolving sense.  Some days I diffuse oils for an extended amount of time. Other days I can’t…

One step forward, two steps back

Several times a year, I get trapped in a cycle that won’t break (see “when everything stops working”). I was at this point last week. It had been 3 weeks of a 6 pain level but spiking often. Finally, I saw my doctor to get shots to knock out the migraine and hopefully regain some…

    This made me “aww” so much! I’ve wanted a golden retriever (already named him Finn) for years now and can almost imagine him here with me already, I don’t think I’d leave his side. That’s right, I’ll be a crazy invisible dog lady rather than a crazy cat lady in a few years’ time! Enjoy the time together and I wish you all the best for a happier, healthier New Year! xx
