Try and try again….

Hi Guys! I am gonna talk with you today for a minute and fill you in on what has been going on……. I went to see my neurologist last week to discuss new options and try a new daily preventative migraine medicine. I was very hopeful but as with any new medicine there are fears and side effects. What is crazy is that there is not any actual migraine medicine but there are 3 categories of meds that have been proven to help. (anti-depressives, blood pressure and the 3rd I forgot, ha) This time we tried an old anti-depression medicine and it had to build up in my system. Well well well………. it has been an awful past 48 hours ….they have been pure hell and I am hoping that by tonight this medicine is OUT of my system. This medicine has made me feel on the verge of throwing up for 48 hours and that is not the worst part. I have not been myself, I was an absolute basket case……the past 2 days I had severe anxiety and panic attacks. Can you believe it? It has been awful I can not explain to you how I have felt like another person. But thankfully it is working it’s way out of my system and I will be back in his office discussing another game plan later this week.
You know I will try everything once because you never know and it is just that the past few days was the WORST case scenario. So upon starting something new there is the fear this will happen again but after 1 migraine ……I will try anything once! I feel a little more like myself today and that is a relief!

    I would rather try everything than give up and live a life less than what you deserve.
