Goodbye 2014

As we say goodbye to 2014 I’d like to wish you all a happy, safe and healthy New Year!!!  I encourage you to find something positive about 2014 and motivating about 2015.  My thankfuls are endless for 2014 and prior.  Thanksgiving and everyday I’m thankful.  I started my blog this summer and can’t believe where it’s taken me since.  I’m so grateful for those of you that read my posts and share with others.  Together we are making a difference and I am honored that you take the time to read it.  I had no idea where it would take me and look forward to where it will go in the next year.  2015 motivates me to take more ownership in my health.  I’d like to investigate the foods I’m eating and how they are making me feel.  I’d like to be a more vocal and knowledgeable patient for my doctors.  No one knows me better than myself and I can’t expect them to help without my feedback.  I’d like to advocate and raise awareness however I can.  I don’t make resolutions but I do want to look back, this time next year, and be able to say I’m healthier in some way, no matter how big or small!  I can’t control my pain but I can control what I’m doing about it.

Helping others have hope with Migraine

What do you do or say to help others have hope? Over the years I have had hundreds if not thousands of pieces of advice about my Migraines.  Most of the time it is well intended but wildly misunderstood.  Just do this, why can’t you do that, all you need is…  Well thank you, but…

    Love your outlook! I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions….in fact, January 1st is always a day taking inventory, of grand totals of pain for the year. I always do it, a bit for my docs but more for myself, but it’s hard, to look back on a year and see how many days were derailed from pain. What a good sentiment to not make a resolution, but just a positive change!

    Reblogged this on My Migraine Life and commented:

    Here is a repost from last year. Not much has changed this year. My health is till the same. I learned a lot about my disease this year and spread awareness but unfortunately see no difference in my condition. As most resolutions go, I did some work on looking at my diet but was wildly unsuccessful and hope to improve. Another year and lots more lessons to be learned. What do you hope to get out of 2016?
