It’s my Birthday! And I’m still Swimming, kinda!

Today is my birthday ???????? ???? It’s the week before school starts and a time to soak up every last bit of summer. This summer I spent a lot of time at the pool watching my son learn how to swim and watching my daughter turn from “the most dedicated swimmer” last year to the “most valued swimmer” this year. It was such a lesson to physically hold a trophy that showed how hard work pays off.

It reminds me of my favorite birthday post Just Keep Swimming It seems to ring true each year. Each year I struggle, each year I move forward, learn and keep my head above water.

I’m no butterfly swimmer but I just keep swimming in life!

Thanks for the birthday wishes and for continuing to follow along on My Migraine Life! It’s a blessing to wake up each day (although I’m in pain) surrounded by love ❤️

Can Dehydration cause a Headache?

Can dehydration cause a headache? Yes! And for me, dehydration triggers a migraine.  The good news is that it is avoidable. The bad news is that it is often overlooked.  Usually, I have a water bottle around (in the car, where I’m siting, at my desk and classroom) but realized I wasn’t drinking it.  This…
