Need your positive thoughts

I wish I could tell you all the wonderful things we did on our family vacay to Florida but I'm stuck in the throws of a migraine although the pain isn't too bad, I always feel depressed when I get a migraine - crazy right?!  Tears roll down my cheeks while I type - trying not to cry because of course that makes it worse.
You, my few online peeps, are the only ones who hear this - my sister and I have vowed to put up a united brave front for my parents as they're vacationing in Florida and can't help us, plus their neighbor just died after a horribly quick fight with pancreatic cancer so we're smiley happy people when we talk to them. My sister works, has two little kids (2, and 5), has just been diagnosed with asthma and hasn't been able to workout in months because of it and has gained 10lbs which I know makes her crazy BUT she never complains about it. So I don't complain to her either. My hubby just raved about how his friend had a mastectomy and was sooo strong going through it that I don't complain to him about  how I feel. I want soo badly to be strong but I'm down so I'm shamelessly asking anyone who reads this to send me a few words of strength until I feel better again.
Maybe I'll get to post smiley happy vacation pics tomorrow - Or tonight (positive thinking right?!)


  1. First of all, there is nothing NOTHING you can blame yourself for getting migraines. It's not like you did something horrible and this is your punishment. They happen to some people and not to others (who can suck it by the way).

    You're feeling low because of the crippling effect a migraine has on you!!! Do.Not.Fall.Victim to that migraine!!!

    Take your darn pills, sleep, and poof (hopefully) you'll wake up better.

    And don't hide it from your family!!! That's what they are there for. That's why we call them family!!! So you have someone to lean on in your tough times! Holding in your feelings aren't going to do anyone good. And it might just make your migraine worse. So let it out. It's ok.

    You are strong! You are great! You will get over this and move on! Again and again and again!

    i'm thinking of you!

  2. I do the same thing - tears just roll but I do NOT want to cry...I'm so sorry honey.

  3. I don't get migraines, but I know a few people who do and they say it's just awful. It will get better, I promise. This too shall pass.
