How I Got Here

Finding Balance In Life

Today I am going to tell the story of how I got where I am today and why I have decided to write blogs. About 6 years ago I began getting chronic headaches and migraines which changed my life (not to sound dramatic). In the beginning I was scared, afraid, and confused — I did not understand why I started getting headaches and why they kept getting progressively worse overtime. I began getting headaches on and off during the day and a bad migraine once or twice a month. Eventually, they got to the point where I was throwing up from them, missing 30+ days of school, and not being able to do “normal” daily things. I was always in pain or had symptoms of a migraine, such as; sensitivity to light, dizziness, or feeling nauseas. I slowly began to convince myself something was really wrong. I have had multiple medical tests done (MRI, cat scan, sleep study, etc.) and my results always come back “perfect.” I am very thankful that I have never got bad result back, but sometimes I just want an answer, unfortunately for me I have not found one (so far). I am not sure if I will ever find what triggers them on a daily basis, but I have learned to manage them better.

I have decided to write blogs so I can share with everyone how I found good balance in my life. I don’t want anyone to feel discouraged or hopeless, like I sometimes do. My blogs will share tips and suggestions on how to live a healthy lifestyle.
