A dream you dream alone

A Dream you Dream Alone is Only a Dream

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream.  A dream you dream together is reality.”-John Lennon I love this statement, yet it should have the disclaimer….with a lot of hard work.  Besides hitting the lottery, I can’t think of any dream that can be achieved without hard work and usually needs some sort of…

Phases of a Migraine life

My Migraine Life functions in a cycle of pain phases.  Sometimes it repeats more quickly than others.  Before last weekend I had been optimistic about trying to control my migraines.  I felt like I was making a difference to help prevent attacks.  Then, one hit to bring me out of that.    Last weekend I functioned…

I Dreamed a Dream by Susan Boyle

I Dreamed a Dream by Susan Boyle

“I dreamed a dream” is one of my favorite songs.  I have seen the play Les Miserable more than once. One of my favorite thing to do is blast the music in my car belting out the ballads.  Even though it’s a sad song, it’s a song that gives me goosebumps every time!  I think…

Broken wings with Migraine and Illness

“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” Langston Hughes Teaching special education isn’t the best career choice for a migraine sufferer.  When choosing my occupation, I did not consider my headaches.  God forbid I do something that didn’t bow to the migraine Gods and demands.  I…

Fairy Tale that Best Describes Me

The fairy tale that best describes me and my life with migraine is Snow White. Being that I have a 4-year old that lives, eats, sleeps, and breathes princesses I have a lot of fairy tales fresh in my mind.  When we play, I usually am the villain.  I’m not the villain because I’m the…

Still I Rise Poem Maya Angelou

Still I Rise Poem Maya Angelou

In Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” poem, I believe she is speaking to everyone.  This poem is an example of how she was able to touch so many in so many ways.  How could her grace, confidence, determination, intelligence, and the quest for peace not touch you?  She speaks to all saying “still I rise.” …

Do Migraines cause Nightmares?

Do Migraines cause Nightmares?

Do migraines cause nightmares? I have had a reoccurring dream about screaming and no sound coming out.  It has happened a few times, each time in a different way.  One time, I was on a roller coaster and I tried to scream like I did as a child going down the hill and nothing came…

Migraine Monster

Migraine Monster

For years I have had a relationship with my migraine monster.  I actually have thought about naming it.  As I thought of the ugliest awful name I could give it, I vetoed the idea.  I didn’t want to give it the respect of naming it. Looking at it as anything but the monster is giving…
