I had to share this with you all: in a few hours' time, I'll have hit my three-week NO MIGRAINES mark! My last migraine was very, very early 1/15. I can't believe this--I can't believe it!!
Though I'm trying to remain in the moment, to realize that this is how I'm feeling now and no guarantee for how I'll feel at any point in the future, I can't help but be happy. In the last few weeks, I've been able to let go of a lot of migraine-related anxiety. When I encountered cigarette smoke indoors at a rock show in Atlanta, I didn't go into panic mode, didn't think, "Oh, no! I must cover my face immediately or else I'll be sick!" I did get away from the cigarette smoker and his billowy stench, but I didn't feel panicky about it in the least. I've been so much more calm, cool, and collected. Trying not to take this for granted, and trying my damnedest not to preach to you all about how I really and truly believe the changes I've made to my life could help you in some way. It's really hard not to preach, though. Really hard.
