This means that as a chronic migraineur I mustn’t be afraid to dream, to imagine…

The greatest dream that I squelch is the ability to regain control of my life; to actually return to having episodic migraines and greater still no migraines at all. I think that decision is both a security blanket and self-sabotage all in one.

1. If I don’t dream, I won’t hope, and therefore have no need to travel yet another road of disappointment.

2. If I don’t dream, I won’t hope, and therefore I will remain exactly as I am: in chronic pain and major discomfort hopelessly allowing life to pass me by. “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” – Anthony Robbins

For the past two or more years I’ve been curled up in my blanket of self-sabotage; but I want that to change. If you go to my archives, you’ll notice that my posts fizzled out shortly after last year’s MHAM Blog Challenge. I had great momentum throughout the month of June, but had no “Migraine Plan” (post to come), to fall back on. This year WILL be different.

This year I will dear to dream of better and more controlled health. I will imagine living the way I want to live. By doing so I’ll have the hope, the desire, the fortitude to make my dreams a reality.  Dear to dream…to imagine with me. What’s you’re “Migraine/Chronic Illness Plan”?
