I'm a mom of three teenagers and married to my wonderful husband for 18 years. I am 38 years old and was diagnosed with migraine at the age of 8. I also have depression, anxiety, and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in November of 2011. I am on a naturopathic/homepathic journey to living a pain-free life. See the impact of chronic pain and the highs and lows of a huge lifestyle change on a mother and a wife who wants to live life under her terms and not that of pain. My goals are to spread awareness, advocate for better funding and healthcare, and to encourage a more natural healthcare approach to healing for those suffering from chronic pain conditions and mental illness. I hope to enlighten people on how serious and real migraine disease is and potentially dispel the stigma surrounding migraine, mental illness and chronic pain conditions. Please enjoy this blog as you travel along this journey with me.
