Migraine Smell Aura and Visual Disturbances

When it comes to migraine, smell aura is one of the strangest symptoms I get. Last weekend, I went shopping. When I went to checkout, I was overcome by the smell of gas.  I cautiously asked if anyone else smelled gas. I didn’t want to induce chaos from people fleeing the store from a gas…

How do I fight a battle for all of us when I’m focused on my own fight?

How do I fight a battle for all of us when I’m focused on my own fight?

I’ve been at a pretty high pain level for the last 2 weeks.  My Botox started wearing off about 6 weeks ago and it was like a switch went off when it wore off.  I have had it a few times over the years but totally sporadically due to the costs of insurance not paying,…

Migraine Medication Break while Pregnant

Migraine Medication Break while Pregnant

I have been pregnant and nursing for the last 2 years. I was off meds while trying to conceive and was both unable and unwilling to take anything while my body provided for my baby. It was actually a relief to not have to focus on myself. Did I get migraines during this time? Of…

Laziness with Migraine

Laziness with Migraine

Oooooh laziness.  I am constantly fearful that I am seen as lazy.  I run a marathon and some days an iron man inside my body every day.  I am a stay at home mom and I work HARD.  I really think my job is one of the most under respected jobs.  Then again I used…

This picture is interesting. The first thing I notice is that she looks open.  Her arms stretched out and head tilted to the sky make her look optimistic for the future.  A dawn of a new day possibly.    She seems to be breathing in the moment.  It looks like the stereotypical stretch one would do…

Fairy tale character that best describes me with Migraine

Being that I have a 4 year old that lives, eats, sleeps and breathes princesses I have a lot of fairy tales fresh in my mind.  When we play, I usually am the villain.  I’m not the villain because I’m the bad guy, but because my dog is the horse, my son is the prince…

Response to “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou

Response to “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou

In Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” I believe she is speaking to everyone.  This  poem is an example of how she was able to touch so many in so many ways.  How could her grace, confidence, determination, intelligence, and quest for peace not touch you?  She speaks to all saying “still I rise.”  Everyone has…

Reoccurring dream and Migraine

Reoccurring dream and Migraine

I have had a reoccurring dream about screaming and no sound coming out.  It has happened a few times, each time in a different way.  One time, I was on a roller coaster and I tried to scream like I did as a child going down the hill and nothing came out.  Another time I…

Describe your Headache and Migraine Monster

Describe your Headache and Migraine Monster

For years I have had a relationship with my migraine monster.  I actually have thought about naming it.  As I thought of the most ugly awful name I could give it, I vetoed the idea.  I didn’t want to give it the respect of naming it and looking at it as anything but the monster…
