30 days of truth...


Ok here goes day one, first truth...
Something I hate about myself, hmmm I think when I was younger I may have had many things that I hated about myself but as I have grown older and wiser I have learned that everything about me is essential to make me the person I am today and honestly I think I am a good person. I like me and I think most people like me. However, there is one thing I really, really hate about me and that is my migraines.



I hate that I get them and I hate that I have had to claim ownership of them as if they are some prized possession!! Ugghhh! I started getting these lovely headaches as a teenager, I was constantly downing ibuprofen, asprin, tylenol, anything I could get my hands on to try to ease the pain. My parents really didn't get it they used to say I just liked medicines. Really?, who likes those kinds of medicines. Anyway, there have been times when I have headaches every single day, sometimes so bad that they lead to an anxiety attack. I become frightened that they are something more even though I know rationally that they are not. I have been to many doctors and tried many different medications, even becoming dependant on one (don't worry I am off that now). So now I am at a point in my life were I am doing alot of contemplating on my quality of life. I really love my life, I have a great job, a great family and great friends but the migraines do take over at times and it really just ticks me off!! They do affect my quality of life, there are days of work missed and family time interupted and frankly I am not okay with that. So there you have it in a nutshell, what I hate about me. Depressing huh? If anyone has any ideas I am always willing to listen and take advice.

Until later,
Hugs,
Shelly

My daughter has started having migraines just in the past few years. They are certainly no fun. I hate that you have to go through that. Maybe they too are part of what makes you the compassionate person you are.

My mom used to get migraines like crazy, just all the time. A few years ago she went and got Botox in her forehead...no more migraines. Because I guess it freezes the whatever up there it makes you less susceptible to the migraines. She goes once a year. Anyway...food for thought ;)
