Big Decisions :: Migraines and Voting

          Once again, I spent a full day in my dark bedroom with no lights or sound this past weekend. I couldn’t even find the strength to lift my head. Hell, even if I did find the strength, it would do no good because serious waves of nausea would encompass my body. This is how my whole Sunday went, right into Monday. Lovely.
          So, along came Big Decision Number 1 – I have decided I need to make some changes in my life in order for these migraines to stop haunting me. I said to myself, “self, you are too young and busy to have these debilitating headaches. You need to fix this problem, and you need to fix it now!” So, I’m doing the only sensible thing I can think of-- eliminate certain aspects of my life that could possibly be the trigger. My doctor has recommended this path, and I’m ready to go down it. I’m starting with less of the following: alcohol, certain foods, certain smells, etc. I NEED TO FIND THE PROBLEM because I don’t want to be on a migraine pill every day of my life. If removing certain pieces of my life doesn’t work, then it’s possible I need to add some vital things to my life. I will get to the bottom of this, and my journey to a happier and healthier life shall continue.
          Big Decision Number 2 – voting. This is honestly the first time the election matters a lot to me. It’s the first time where I am truly concerned about health care, taxes, etc. I’m such an adult now! No but really, I need to stop worrying about how the election results will affect other people, and I need to stop listening to other people’s opinions. I have watched all the debates and done enough research where I can make an educated decision. I need to follow my heart and vote for who I think is best for ME and my future. Call me selfish, but I don’t care. So, today I will be making my little way down to the polls, and I will perform my civil duty. I’m so proud to be an American, and you should be too.
Do you suffer from migraines or know anyone who does? Do you know of any certain foods or drinks that could be the cause? CAN YOU HELP ME?
