I'm a Migraine Survivor!

I survived chronic migraines! Saying that out loud is mind boggling at times but it's my truth. I have lived with chronic migraines for such a long time that it had become such a huge part of my life. I still sometimes wait for that migraine to creep up on me and get me when I least expect it...how sad is that.

I suffered with horrible migraines since my early 20's and every year and after each of my pregnancies they just got worse and worse. I would get them about 15 times a month where I would be vomiting and just begging for some mercy in the pain. I have tried EVERYTHING from medications, botox, change in diet, supplements (including Migrelief), chiropractors, acupuncturists and the list goes on and on. There is nothing that I wouldn't try.

I have 2 children and I was robbing them of a mother and I wanted my life back. That is when my sister gave me this article to read http://www.chatelaine.com/health/wellness/migraine-therapy/ I immediately set an appointment to see Brendan Cleary at the Ontario Migraine Clinic and here I am today migraine free!

I vowed to spread the word to everyone about how this treatment literally saved my life and I ask others who have seen him to do the same. He sees hundreds of patients a week from all over and we all just can't believe how our lives have been transformed. I say this to give hope to others and to never give up on yourself. Never dismiss any treatment in saying "oh that won't help me" you just never know what will work. I know where I have been and it's heartbreaking to hear all these stories of pain and suffering. I wish everyone all the best and keep you all in my prayers. God bless!
