The reality of Life with Chronic_______

I have had 2 1/2 days without migraine pain since January 1st. So for 13 out of the past 15 days, this is what I look like…


I have showered 3 times in those 2 weeks, brushed my teeth a few time (brushing hair or teeth causes more pain than I am willing to allow on top of the migraine pain).  I change my underwear if I remember and never wear a bra.   This is my reality!!!  And the reality for many others who suffer from Chronic Illness.

But today is our 16th Wedding Anniversary and I was having nothing to do with it, I am so over the pain. So I called my doctor and asked if I could take the migraine cocktail at home even though I have used the meds as much as I should this week. He gave me the go ahead. After about a half an hour the pain is much reduced and I am determined to enjoy our night.

Me after the migraine cocktail….


And so now we can go celebrate. Plus all my boys brought me home a new plant. It should be a good evening!!


So off to Carrabbas we go!!

Mother’s Day

Happy Mothers Day ( and Grandmothers Day) to the greatest mom. I read Rachel Crowley (Loose) tribute to her mom and she nailed it. You stuck by my side through some major mother/daughter trials and stuck by my side through it all and let me work it out. I am so grateful you stuck by my side and have gotten to be an awesome Grandma. I Love you Sherry Dunne Weaver. And I am so very grateful for you especially over these past four months.

A big thank you to our day care provider Tammy for having the boys do this for me.  I love them!

Me and my boys!!!

Thank goodness that I was able to enjoy a little bit of time with my family on Mother’s Day.  My pain had returned to my baseline of 3 which I am able to cope with in the absence of major triggers.
