Me and Migraines
You may have noticed I do less social media and emails sometimes. Why? I have migraine headaches. I only get them occasionally now vs. almost daily when I worked in corporate.
I can see the pain in my eyes in this photo. I'm at one of my favorite places at the beach. This is a look I can identify in many past photos.
When I was immersed in my prior career, I didn’t practice self-care and didn’t know how. I was in survival mode but there was no end. It wasn’t until I was offered a package from my company that I made my exit and never looked back.
There are usually two things that combine to trigger my migraines and I can’t always determine which two.
*lack of sleep
*too much computer
I could finally take a step back, breathe and create a new path. First I acknowledged that the headaches weren't my fault. Then I embraced self-care, clean living and had a clear head to begin my new journey. Never would I have imagined having my own business in a new industry. I was in a place where I could give back along with my community. I was truly inspired by others who did the same thing.
After the migraine the following happens to me.
I know I need to rest, take pain meds and let it all pass. Everyone is different and I’m interested in your experience. Feel free to email me email@example.com
