Welcome to my very first blog post! 
I started this blog to reach out to those living with migraine and other chronic pain disorders. My mission is to share, parts of my day and struggles with migraine, chronic pain and how I deal with it.

This blog is also all about HOPE and what I consider hope’s sidekick, humor. I’ve been living with Chronic Migraine, Fibromyalgia, and Degenerative Disc Disease, for over 17 years. These diseases may be in my DNA, but hope and humor are not. I had to choose whether to allow them in my life or not. I am so very glad that I did.

Hope gives me the courage to keep going, even on the roughest days. Hope lights the way, through the darkest of times. Hope is the heartbeat of my soul. Hope changes everything! H.O.P.E. Hold On Pain Ends. As a friend told me recently, “hope is the nectar of the gods”!

Being positive is a personal goal of mine, I look for the silver lining in every difficult situation. Hoping to find a positive in the midst of difficulty.

I have the most amazing group of online migraine friends. I call them my “migraine sisters”, for truly I am as close, if not closer to them than my own sister. I love her dearly, but she doesn’t understand migraine, like those who are going through the same thing I am. We draw strength from one another through, encouragement, support, inspiration, and genuinely caring about each other.

I look forward to interacting with you, over the next days, weeks, and months. With hope much longer than that!

“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness” Desmond Tutu
