Count Other’s Blessings as Your Own

Friday Feelings Yesterday was a hard day for me.  It was one of those days where I had a bunch of things on my calendar and they all turned out a little worse than I had expected.  I had 2 doctors appointments, one of them leaving me in tears.  I had a conference about my…

Acupuncture for Migraine and Headaches: Reasons it Works when Affordable

Acupuncture for migraine, does it work? I tried acupuncture for my migraine and other issues.  For years, I have heard about acupuncture for migraine but was hesitant.  I get on average 75-90 shots a year to treat my chronic migraine and don’t love it.  The thought of trying another doctor putting needles in me didn’t…

Allergies and Headaches

Allergies and headaches go hand in hand for me. Several years ago, I had sinus surgery.  I have suffered from sinus issues and infections my whole life (just like migraine).  After many sinus infections, this year I decided to look for more answers on why I’m still suffering so much from allergies and headaches.

Disney World. My migraine

    There is no way I expected to make it three days without getting a migraine.  My day at Magic Kingdom had been perfect and low pain which meant for sure I was getting one the next day.  Sure enough, I woke up sick.  I immediately took my rescue meds, drank water and rolled…
