I’m a lover of music that’s what I find gets me by in my day to day life, but when my migraines are bad. Music is that last thing on my mind — well not literally, because at the back of my mind I’m usually singing a song, like right now as I think of a name for this Article “Yesterday” I start to sing:

“Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they’re here to stay. Oh, I believe in yesterday.”

As you understand, the point of the article is how although yesterday was not a good Migraine day for me, it was a good general day, as it was my Mother’s birthday. And I suppose in some respects “It’ll Rain another Day!” there’s another song Honestly I’m a walking Music-pedia / jukebox. Filled with songs, facts, lyrics, etc.

This also is my first blog here so in a nut shell giving a quick description of who I am as a person, I’m very much a what you see is what you get kinda guy, I’m whacky crazy off the wall, doolally. Typically, what you would expect from someone with Migraines, with the lack of focus and brain fog.

Oh on that note.

Hello, my name is James and I’m 28 I live in Scotland, UK I was recently diagnosed Migraines 14th August 2019, and currently going through further testing as to specify any underlying health conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, etc that could be causing the Migraine as a secondary symptom.

I was recently in the hospital and had a terrible experience where I was sleep deprived for 21 hours, from the pain of the migraine and had to sit for a bus in the waiting area for a further 6 hours under bright lights which didn’t exactly help my migraine or help the sleep deprivation…

But heck… At least…

“The Sun’ll come out tomorrow, bet your bottom Dollar, that tomorrow, there’ll be sun!”

Thanks guys
