Just Keep Swimming with Migraine on my Birthday
Just keep swimming with migraine. That’s what Dory taught me. Yeah, it’s my birthday!!!! Thank you for all the well wishes on my day! How was “my day?”
I was busy and felt pretty well. I decided to cancel my massage and take my children to see Finding Dory. This is the last week before school starts and they wanted to go all Summer, so my birthday was the day….
We started by painting our nails with Dory nail polish and lip gloss. Then we baked cookies and painted with edible paint and decals. Yum! Nothing says a birthday like cooking and crafting with my babies!
Throughout the day, I ate way too much junk food, forgot to take a picture of my cake and was up most of the night in pain with my mind racing with the upcoming week. (next week school starts)
With the Summer ending and school beginning, I took notes from Dory (as I always do with children’s movies) and embraced, “Just keep swimming!” This has been a rough summer for me migraine wise, as always, and I hope this fall brings nothing but joy and new adventures in good health.
For the entire year, in good times and bad, sickness and health, I want to remind you all to “Just keep swimming.” Sometimes things may seem really hard, dark, and lonely. Other times may feel too good to be true.
Through it all, Dory reminds us to:
Just keep swimming
When faced with a new challenge, look around and find a way
Friends can become family with devotion and love
Family can help you find the way home
So as my family faces many new adventures this school year, we are all going to keep swimming and find our way!
