I spent last evening with family. While the boys launched rockets from a snow-covered part of the meadow, I saw a beautiful sunset "magic hour" unfold to our east.
My migraine went wild last night, and I lay there thinking about how to best approach this new hurdle in life. I think that perhaps, while I keep trying to get answers from doctors, I should start to accept them as a part of my life.
I am taking a page from my history with this approach. When I first had terrible spine pain, I obsessed over it, worrying incessantly about the pain. It wasn't until I accepted that the pain was going to be part of my life that I started to heal emotionally and find happiness again.
Perhaps that lesson from my past would help me now - help me to stand strong and vibrant, even though these evil things seem to have become a regular part of my life.
There's always a chance that they will dissipate or that a doctor will find a cure. One of you kindly sent me a link to a forum where many people reported going through an extremely tough time with migraines after being under general anaesthesia. I've pursued it further, and my reading suggests that it happens more often than I knew. Moreover, most people emerge from the fog with time.
Springtime is around the corner - a time for new beginnings. On my outdoor bike ride today, I saw two willows that had begun to grow catkins.
I also saw bluebirds and red-winged blackbirds, avian species that only live here in the spring and summer! My spirits were buoyed by the thought of the new life that spring will bring.
