What A Life

It has been longer than I would like since I have posted last but I have been pretty busy. I have a new job which is really exciting, although since it is substitute teaching, I’ll have to wait till school goes back into session to really have assignments. 352 more words

Migraine: A Serious Neurological Disease

I’m not feeling good today.

I have fallen into a depressed migraine state: when the agonizing pain has lessened but not gone away… when my whole body hurts… when my depression and anxiety is super high… when I feel so completely misunderstood by everyone… my family and especially at my job. 279 more words
