Today it has been 100 days since I have had a migraine. There is no one word that sums this up for me. Words that come to mind are:
- Really, really nice
Not having my eyesight leave me for 30 minute periods followed by dull senses, then a life changing headache that follows the next day happen multiple times per week has just been wonderful.
The problem is that it scares the absolute crap out of me. When am I going to have a migraine again? I walk into stores and get a little panicky, wondering if this is the day that my streak will be broken. I’m scared to think of a time in the future that I may be referring to this period of my life as ‘there was a time that I went 100 days without a migraine’.
Daily B-2, Feverfew, Butterbur, green migraine smoothie, which one is doing the work? Will they continue to work? How much time do I get of this non-migraine lifestyle? 100 days isn’t long enough to consider it to be my new normal. The anxiety that comes with migraines really sucks. I let the anxiety cat out of the bag fully on a past post here: https://youcantarguewithcrazy.wordpress.com/2014/09/07/migraines-have-created-a-bob-wiley-level-of-anxiety/
Ok, checking myself, gotta get back to being grounded, and stay the course. I’m going to take a moment and enjoy this ride. 100 days of no migraines is magical.
‘Just keep swimming.’
