Something is off

My migraines (or break through pain) usually last at the minimum of 2.5-3 weeks. So what has been happening over the last 3 days is very strange to me. The pain comes on like a train reck then goes away with ibuprofen  and sleep…? What is happening? I normally need an arsenal of meds, both pain, nausea, anti-anxiety and strong anti-inflammatory to knock down my pain a notch.  So taking ibuprofen (and my sleeping medication) and falling asleep and then the pain going away over night-…Is a f&*cking dream for me!!!!!!! 

That has never happened to me! EVER. 

I am tying to figure out why this happens in the late afternoon…how are these last few days any different then any other day? Why is it that just an over-the-counter medication can fix this?  …When I am use to using heavy narcotics and steroids.

Any who, I am grateful for what is going on in my body.  I am always grateful for my amazing body working in the way it does. Our bodies can naturally heal us from disease, but with the proper nutrition and lifestyle you can even more completely. It is true that what we eat is what we are.  (I always say-good health promoting affirmations as a part of my healing)

Almost 3 years ago I changed my eating 180 degrees. I had been eating OK for the last 11 years and have been on many elimination diets and cleanses but it was just in the last 3 years that I went 100% organic, I strive for non-GMO foods, cut our dairy, sugar and gluten. I even took it a step further and changed all my products, both personal and household, too natural and non-toxic ones.

And guess what? It is absolutely true that what the worlds doctors are trying to communicate to us is that a healthy eating, exercise and all over lifestyle does affected who and how we are and what we become. This will predict our future selves. Again…I cannot say it enough-“you are what you eat” but you are also a product of how you live.

My life changed, for the better, dramatically after going all natural. 

My migraines became less frequent. I was less nauseated, I became more social, I started being creative and new ideas were popping into my head. This is when I choose to pursue and education in Health and Wellness coaching. I believe, so much, in what I was doing and how much it helped me that I knew after 11 years of my own struggles with chronic pain and and with an education in holistic health and wellness, that I could help others with their goals of healthier lives. My goal was and is to offer a path, direction and guidance to others who want better lives through nutrition and lifestyle and thus that is what I do. 

If you change the way you eat and live…you can have a much healthier and vibrant life.  If you don’t go within, you will go without. I knew helping others to achieve a healthier and happier life was my new passion filled career. 

It is 8:00 am and I feel fine after lasts nights bout. Thank you Jesus. I feel very hopeful for more positive changes in my life but I want you to know that I am and have always been hopeful. Call it faith or ignorance, I am always hopeful and eager about the future, for me, my health and my happiness. I always think to myself, “What is possible”. Instead of holding on to what I cannot have, I choose to focus on what I do and have. This is my message. 

*A note about my blog*

I want to be as real as I can in sharing these posts…just me. I give what I can in writing my words and I only hope to inspire other so they CAN have a good and happy life. I am far from perfect. I make all sorts of mistakes. I do this in my free time, but I always try and write when the words are fresh in my head and is what is happening right now or to what is happening in my life at the moment. If I were to make my, blog pretty and sparkly with lots of graphics…that would take a long time to create…time I do not have. So my goal is to just write and put it out there, mostly for my own healing and retrospect. 

If you suffer like me, know there are endless possibilities and outcomes that can happen and you can make a difference to what is to come for you in the future for you. Be proactive. Find your inner bull, feel the rage within to fight for yourself. You can be your own advocate. I wish you peace and love and lots of fun…in between your episodes. Relax in the chaos. Be true to yourself.  No matter what age, you can change. I promise,…I did it and so can you!

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.

With love and care,

Something strange is happening to me and it’s got me thinking…

I’ve had a migraine, off and on, for the last 3 days. In fact, the pain has only struck near 4:00 pm in the afternoon each of these last few days.  The pain is about a 7…which is usually when I head to the emergency room for intervention, however this migraine has gone away over night. I am waking up each morning with the pain gone.  Hmm…this is hella out of character for my migraines.  Usually,  with my migraines I feel very irritable, fatigued, cranky, my muscles and body become tight and then the fear and anxiety come in to play about 5 days before the pain hits. I think to myself “oh shit,..here we go again and I fill up with what I call “fear anxiety” due to I cannot predict or really have any clue as to how long it will last. I get frightened in a big way. Then the migraine reveals it’s ugly face and I usually have the pain and symptoms for at least 7 days (and that’s a short migraine for me) then there is a 5-7 days of recovery after the pain stops. When I say “recovery” I mean that my body literally unravels and relaxes after being so tight, scared and wound-up for the duration the pain. It takes a while for the nausea to go away and I am very timid with how fast I get back into my routine of managing this crazy life. I am still affected by light (well, that’s always but …) and noise, crowds and social interaction. I need to be still after a migraine. It’s the only way I know how to recovery.  

My migraines (or break through pain) usually last at the minimum of 2.5-3 weeks. So what has been happening over the last 3 days is very strange to me. The pain comes on like a train reck then goes away with ibuprofen  and sleep…? What is happening?
