Disney World. The bad

Every good side has a bad side. I was happily surprised that I saw little bad while I visited Disney World.  The bad thing that I did see was ungrateful people. My experience with meditation didn’t go well but something I find easy and beneficial to do every day is to show gratitude.  It comes easily…

Disney World. The Good, the Bad, and the Migraine. Starting with the Good

  I went to Disney World for 3 days and I could probably write a book on it.  Instead, I’m going to focus on three things. The good, the bad, and my migraine.  So let’s begin with the good…… Where to begin. Disney World is called the happiest place on earth for a reason.  If…

Lessons and life with Migraine and Disney

With seeing the new Beauty and the Beast and planning a trip to Disney World this year, I have been reminded of a lot of lessons learned through Disney. Today I reminisced to the very beginning of my blogging adventures.  I wrote a post about Aladdin that was short and sweet but meaningful to many…

Salt Cave for Allergies, Stress and Migraine Relief

I have had a ton of response about my Himalayan Salt lamp post.  The main question being, “Did it help your migraine?”  With long term benefits, possibly yes?! After I found that it wasn’t giving me particular relief, I placed it in my son’s room.  My son suffers from seasonal allergies, coughs, congestion, sinus infections…

I have a Master’s degree in special education.  It has been really helpful in understanding how the brain works, fails,…

Bright Snow Triggers Migraine

Bright Snow Triggers Migraine

Bright snow triggers migraine attacks in me. I live in the snow belt of Cleveland.  We currently have mass amounts of snow.  It’s crazy cold out but oh well……I’m used to it.  So we hibernate.  But unlike those cozy, dozy bears, in a dark cave, I am forced to face the dreaded snow glare. Snow…

Do weather swings trigger migraine?

Weather and Migraine: Barometric Pressure Headache

Weather and migraine, it’s something I can never control. I’m like a human migraine barometer. I wish weather swings were as fun as real swings.  The way my kids laugh going up and down back and forth looks fun.  Instead, the temperature goes up and down making my head sway back and forth and it’s…

What do you do when medication stops working?

  Several times a year my medication stops working. To begin with, preventative medications give me terrible side effects.  I tend to stay off them except Botox.  I have been on and off Botox for years and each time it is different in results.  Sometimes it works, other times it seems to make me sick,…
