Hi @Bebop! Your reply sure made me feel good! Thank you! I am truthfully a happy person by nature… but I will say that for a year, MAV stole that from me. How could I be happy when I truly felt like my life was over, but not over since I’d have to do it all again another day and I didn’t have the strength to go another day. Hard to even describe how much it takes from you.
But! I have endured and I have overcome so much!
No, actually and surprisingly I don’t always feel 20% of the symptoms. Today for instance: I woke up a tiny bit crummy with a lot of head pressure (weather change day) and then my coffee pot shot craps, so my routine was thrown off! I would say until about 11, I was feeling 70% “normal”. After the rain blew through and my head cleared up I spent the rest of the day a solid 90%!
I don’t expect that the remainder will go away. My Dr says “you have migraine brain and will always have migraine brain”. So I know I’ll always have challenges but if this is as good as it gets… I’m honest to God Happy! If I improve further, it would be an unexpected blessing.
I have such high hopes for your mom Bebop! I hope she knows how much we are all pulling for her and that she can one day come here to celebrate her healing with us!
James will tell us if we are breaking any rules, but I do think your questions are so relevant for all to hear.
Thank you for your comments and questions. I am an open book and want to help as many people as I can… I told my husband that I will be on this forum for the long haul, even after I’m healed. I want to give back in any way I can in hopes of helping anyone with this dreadful disorder. Feel free to message me also any time!
