Last year’s birthday and migraine motivation

just keep swimming


This week is my birthday! As I looked back at where I was last year, I was struggling but happy. I’m about the same but can say I’ve seen growth. I strengthened my time management this year and really focused on doing things that make me happier and healthier.

I started a new job that inspires me to feel better, gives me a new sense of purpose and the people there make me smile and laugh.  Being a teacher and changing lives is very motivating and the families I work with are incredible!

My Migraine Life has done a lot of great things and I’m very proud of my blog being so unique and well received. I had never read a blog when I began this journey and I’m proud that I created this community and am helping so many in my own way.

Please endorse My Migraine Life for Wego Health Awards. It’s a nice thank you for all my hard work!  Just go to the link and scroll to the thumbs up!


I still have a lot of “bad days” and feel better knowing that on my less painful days I’m helping and teaching so many.  I’m using my good days for the good and that is the best I can do.  On those bad days…..I’ll “just keep swimming!”

Last year’s birthday post!


I tell stories of My Migraine Life. I'm a mom, wife, teacher, and chronic migraine sufferer. I tell my stories and advocate in my life searching for health in a positive honest way.

    Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday! It’s my birthday tomorrow and it’s made me quite reflective too (not all in a positive way…) but it’s important to see the steps forward, the ways you’ve grown, and the wonderful things you’ve done with your amazing blog too! 🙂
