1082. Still trying to count mine…

Screen Shot 2016-02-28 at 2.46.23 PM.png

As those of you know who’ve been following me for a while, my migraine headaches are out of control again and I don’t know why. I’ve seen one doctor who I was not happy with at all nor was I happy with the meds he was perscribing without running any tests to find out why after 3 years my headaches have worsened. My husband who remembered the name of the neurologist who dealt with me when I was in the hospital after my stroke encouraged me to go see her. And so today I had an appointment to see her and found her to be as competent, pleasant, and caring as she had been in the hospital. After her examination and talking with her for sometime, she has ordered some tests, an MRI, blood work, and a carotid dopler to see what we can find out before starting to change any current meds or prescribe new ones. Since I’ve not been sleeping well as a result of the increased migraines as well as working hard in the yard, I am exhausted and spent today, physically and emotionally. For whatever reason, my life has been fraught with a great deal of physical pain and there are times when it’s all I can do to hang in and hang on. Because I hate whiners, I don’t often discuss these things with others and/or let it steal any more of life life and joy than it already has. But today, kiddies, little Natalie Scarberry is struggling to keep her head above water. Not only am I hurting but not knowing what’s made my headaches worse is very worrisome especially since I’ve had a stroke. So this is it for me for the day. I’m not even sure that I’ll be able to read your posts this evening. Maybe later when I’ve rested and recomposed myself, I’ll feel differently, but for now I’m going to find something to feed my neurosis, look at the mountain of laundry that needs to be done, and trust in the Lord’s promises, grace, mercy, and goodness.

So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am you God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ~Isaiah 41:10   ✝

  1. Prayers and heavenly hugs to you Natalie. Being one who suffers from migraines too I know how much they take out of you and not knowing their cause is worrisome. Mine come and go staying around for months and then disappearing for months only to come back …making the reason for them puzzling for all. I will differently keep you in my prayers!

    • Thank you, Deborah Ann. I’m so sorry you suffer with migranines too. Oh I wish mine had and did come and go. Daily headaches started when I was 25 with at least two a week escalating into full-blown migraines. I so appreciate your understanding and prayers. 🙂 ❤


  2. So sorry to hear of your migraines again Natalie. I had them during both my pregnancies and know they are not fun. They sometimes made me throw up. I will be praying for you sis. Please take good care and rest.
    Love and hugs. ♡♡♡

  3. Thank you for sharing this with us, Natalie. You bring so much beauty and love the this place, it’s the least we can do to lift you up in prayer and send healing, loving thoughts to you. I’m so glad your husband encouraged you to go to the better doctor. Having a doctor who is compassionate and smart makes a big difference. Prayers coming to you as you rest, to ease, then eliminate, your pain and comfort your heart and mind.

  4. I am behind in reading a few of your messages. I will hope the migraine eased off. I use a hot washcloth out of microwave applied to my eyes, cooler temp room, lie down, try to sleep and one acetymynophen and one ibuprofen. The nurse at school where I taught 9 years called it her ” magic potion.” ♡♡♡♡

  5. Am sending prayers your way. My Mum used to have migraines before and I remember she wanted a quiet and dark room to rest. I know it is easier said then done but try not to worry. Let God take your load off you. God bless.

  8. So sorry Natalie. I don’t know if this will help or not, but they say if you squeeze the juice of a fresh lemon in a warm glass of water every morning it is suppose to help with migraine pain. In the meantime I will include you in my daily prayers and hope this all passes quickly. Bless you sweet lady. xo

  9. I hope you are soon skipping on rainbows like the girl in the image you included, impossible as that may seem when you in the thunder cloud of a migraine. Hopefully the current tests will lead to a positive direction.
