Today’s prompt: “YOUR Hope,” What do you hope for most in your journey with Headaches or Migraines? Please share with us about what you hope for and why.
Migraine has taken away from me a basic human right, freedom. I no longer have control over my body and therefore no control over my life.
As a result, my hope is to find a good headache neurologist that will help me to gain control. I desperately desire to return to having episodic migraines. I can’t remember the last time, in more than 13 years, that I went a day without a headache or a week without a migraine (migraine is not just a headache). I want days, weeks, and months without a headache much less a migraine; and when I get either one, I want it to respond to the meds I’m given so that I’m down no more than 3 days. As I said in a recent post, rather than spending 80% of my life in bed, in a dark room, nursing a migraine, I want to spend 80-90% living life outside in the fresh air and sunshine.
I want to ride horses again, go swimming when I want, assist others, work, workout, clean my house and not squash the desire of having a baby because I couldn’t imagine carrying for a child while caring for myself.
I want freedom. I want control. I want a life without migraines.
