What causes a migraine and how do I get out of this vicious pattern without drugs?
Have you ever had a migraine so excruciatingly painful with the feeling of a knife above your eye going through your forehead that ice, pressure, and not even drugs can take the edge off and it lasts for days? The absolute worst thing that could happen in that moment would be your husband calling you to tell you that you need to pick up your son at preschool.  I can't tell you how many times this happened to me. 

What thoughts go through your head during this time?  I'm not enough.  I don't even feel capable  of picking up my kid at school.  I'm a terrible mom.  My family would be better off without me. Why can't the doctors figure out what is causing this?  Why is God doing this to me?  What have I done to deserve this?   None of these are the TRUTH! 

One thing it took me years and years (40 to be exact) to figure out is what you focus on you get more of.   So the more you focus on why me, poor me, I can't, I'm not capable of, and lived in fear of getting a migraine away from home, that is exactly what you will get.  Hear my heart, this is not your fault.  This is all that you have known until now.  I, myself, continued in this awful cycle with things getting progressively worse and worse until I was unable to work and didn't want to leave my house for much of anything.

Once I stepped out of the norm of seeing doctors and specialists who treated my symptoms and helped me the best they knew how, I was finally able to find improvement. 

Did this solve all of my problems?  No, but it started me on the right path.  I still watch what I eat very closely.  I avoid dyes, chemicals, and processed foods as best  I can, and my toxic load is way down.  I also watch for emotional triggers.  This is not something to take lightly.  Read this book to read more about this subject:  Feelings Buried Alive Never Die, by Karol K. Truman

Instead of saying, "I can't, I'm a terrible mom, this is never going to end."   I started saying, "I'm capable and lovable."  "Good health is a natural part of my life."  "I am worthy."  "I am enough."  Guard your mind closely.  Life and Death is in the power of the tongue, and you will eat the fruit of it.  

You are beautiful.  You are enough.  God has a special plan for you and your life.
