“Birds don’t just fly, they fall down and get up.
Nobody learns without getting it wrong.
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
til I reach the end and then I’ll start again.

This song came up in my memories on Facebook a couple of days ago, as I listened to the lyrics they resonated with me. Nobody learns without making a few mistakes along the way. It’s how we react to those mistakes, that makes the difference in our walk with migraine. I choose to learn from my mistakes and never give up or give in! 

“No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I can fail.
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in
til I reach the end and then I’ll start again.
No I won’t leave, I wanna try everything!”

When living with migraine, there are many times that medication, or other treatment procedures fail, but we can’t stop there. We need an attitude, that says “I want to try and keep on trying, until my doctor and I find, a treatment plan that will work! I will not give up

“Look at how far you’ve come,
you filled your heart with love.
Baby you’ve done enough, take a deep breath.
Don’t beat yourself up, don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come in last, but we did our best”

Yes, I’ve come a long way in the last three years, if someone had told me four or five years ago, that I would have a Twitter account, I just had my two-year anniversary, with 595 followers, and start a blog. I would have just laughed my head off, because I just didn’t think I was capable of doing either of those things. Looks like I proved myself wrong!
Living with chronic migraine and other chronic pain issues, I’ve learned that there are days that I need to give myself a break. Take a deep breath, not beat myself up, there’s no need to run so fast. You can only do your best, but be willing to try everything, with the help of your doctor to manage your migraine. Never give up and never lose HOPE! 

“Never stop dreaming,
never stop believing,
never give up,
never stop trying, and
never stop learning.”
― Roy T. Bennett

Live with hope,
