My Migraine Life Update

First, I’ve relocated my blog to www.mymigrainelife.net. It has been a long time coming, and please let me know what you think of the new website. Phone readers may not see the dramatic change as much as computer users. I’m trying to feature all the hard work over the years and make my resources easier to find and explore. I appreciate feedback on the look, the info, and how things are categorized.

Also, if you have any past posts that you have enjoyed, I’d love to hear about them! I’m going back and revamping a few to make them searchable. Please message me or comment on some that have made you think, related to, and touched your mind or heart. I’ve written many and want to start with the ones that My Migraine Lifers love the most!

My Migraine Life Updated Gift Guide

Second, I’ve been working on my gift guide for migraine. It’s a tradition that I look forward to each year. Connecting with brands I love, product reviews to give you information, discounts for holiday presents, and GIVEAWAYS!!!! Each year I eliminate and add new products I’ve used over the year. Promotions for these products will begin soon!!! Take advantage of the deals.

Update on Advocacy

Last but possibly most importantly, I have worked with many advocates and migraine organizations/foundations. I aim to be well-rounded in my advocacy by touching personal lives with My Migraine Life while raising funds for Miles for Migraine (charity) and collaborating with some powerhouse advocates and organizations like American Migraine Foundation.

Life Update

I have been trying new treatments without success yet. I’ve been teaching, which is exhausting, and trying to change the world, one preschooler at a time. As always, my babies have consumed my mind, body, and soul, and we continue to march on while kindergarten meltdowns have surfaced (I’m not the only one who’s tired and cranky!) Along with all of this, I’ve been adjusting to life without my migraine therapy and best friend and welcoming in our sweet family puppy.

I am blessed every day. I count my blessings and continue to find happiness in little things, all while battling this awful neurological disease. Finding joy in those, I surround myself with and the world I’m making a difference in gives me purpose and peace in my suffering.

What is your favorite or most memorable post I’ve written?

Can Dehydration Cause Headaches?

Can dehydration cause headaches? Yes! And for me, dehydration triggers my 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 sitting, at my desk, and classroom), but I realized I wasn’t drinking it. This was…

My treatment plans change depending on what preventative or abortive medications work for me at the time. Some examples of preventive are Topomax and Botox.
