Why Migraines Won't Go Away: The Truth About Chronic Illness

Migraines are one of the most debilitating conditions that can affect anyone. It can strike at any time, ruining your day, making it difficult to think or concentrate, and causing excruciating pain. And for those who suffer from chronic migraines, it can be a life-altering condition that can take away your freedom and ability to enjoy life as you know it. Despite the advancements in the medical field, many people still struggle with migraines that just won’t go away. So, what is the truth about chronic migraines, and why won’t they go away? Let’s take a closer look.

There is No Single Cause
One of the most challenging aspects of migraines is that there is no single cause. It is a complex condition that can be triggered by a variety of factors such as environment, diet, stress, and other underlying health conditions. Identifying the root cause of your migraines can be a daunting task, but it is crucial to understanding why they aren't going away. You may need to try different treatments before you find out what triggers your migraines.

Treatment is a Journey
Migraine treatment is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is a journey that requires patience, trial and error, and a willingness to learn and grow. You may need to try many different lifestyle changes or alternative therapies before you find what works for you. It can be frustrating to go through different treatments with little or no improvement, but it is essential to remember that persistence pays off. Keep searching for the right treatment, and don't give up hope.

Lifestyle Changes are Key
The way you live your life can greatly affect your migraine. Factors such as diet, sleep, exercise, and stress management can all contribute to the frequency and severity of your migraines. By making lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and practicing stress management techniques, you can reduce your risk of migraines and improve your overall well-being.

Self-Care is Essential
Self-care is a crucial aspect of dealing with migraines that won't go away. It is easy to get consumed with the pain and frustration of migraines, but taking care of yourself is important. Give yourself permission to rest when you need to, practice healthy boundaries, and prioritize your mental health. Remember that your mental and physical health are interconnected and taking care of one can greatly improve the other.

Dealing with migraines that won't go away can be a daunting task, but it is essential to remember that you are not alone. There is no single cause of migraines, and treatment is a journey that requires patience and a willingness to learn and grow. By making lifestyle changes, practicing self-care, and seeking help, you can take control of your migraines and improve your overall well-being. Don't give up hope; keep searching for the right treatment, and remember to be kind to yourself along the way.

From healing my body to healing my Soul!

From healing my body to healing my Soul!
In June of 2017, I was desperate.  I struggled with near-constant migraines and hyperthyroidism, and the doctors told me there was nothing they could do for me.  It was June for crying out loud, and the only time I left my house was to go to the doctor.  I had 4 children...I couldn't live like this!  

I was willing to grasp at any straw for physical healing, and the prior years showed it.  I had spent thousands of dollars on medical care, special glasses, eye surgery, colonoscopy, hospital stays, and my health only continued to spiral downwards.  

Finally, I remembered someone a friend of mine told me about, but doubts crept in...how could anyone help me?  I had seen neurologists and endocrinologists, and they certainly hadn't helped.   

 I would have told you that all my problems were physical.  Even my family doctor had told me once, "I know this isn't in your head."

I was about to learn something incredibly profound.  Your mental and emotional wellbeing is tied to your physical health.  WOW!!  That took me a bit to wrap my head around, but I was in a place where I had nothing to lose.  Following directions, I was feeling so much lighter by the time I walked out of the office.   I was able to drive to and cheer on my daughter at her softball game the very next week! 

So this is how I started on my journey to physical healing, and in the process I happened upon an even bigger journey of mental, emotional, and spiritual growth and healing!  

The craziest thing now is that I am so grateful for my migraines, chronic illness, depression and anxiety, because without them I wouldn't have the spiritual relationship with God I have now and I wouldn't be in a position to help others find healing.
