The Migraine Journey
Finding YOUR Individual Process is Key to Keeping Migraines at Bay
This is something that I've wanted to do for a VERY long time now: creating a database of resources, supplements, stories, recipes, tried and true tricks, all of the above!
Since having a full onset of vestibular migraines in 2018 (in the heat of the pandemic!) I've learned how mentally, emotionally, and physically debilitating having migraines is. As a result, I did all of the testing necessary to rule out any other conditions, started finding specialists that truly listened to me and my specific concerns, and started doing my own research on vestibular migraines, as compared to other types of migraines. I learned SO much along this journey- so much that brought me out of being fully handicapped and dependent upon my husband to do literally everything for or with me, to being fully independent again (how I like to be lol) with a few lifestyle changes. The best parts about this experience:
That all of the changes led to a healthier lifestyle that everyone should strive towards, sick or not
It taught me to advocate for myself and my needs
That life is short! Now I appreciate the small things more than the big ones.
Stay tuned as I build out a go-to resource for those of us who are still looking for solutions to get back to some form of normal. It's possible!
