Life is a rollercoaster

The last few months have been a bit of a rollercoaster.

The best bits have been setting up a business and starting to do some work which has been really exciting.

I’m better than I was and able to do more which is amazing.

It’s great when I look how far I’ve come and frustrating when I look how far there still is to go, but I’m also very aware of friends and people I know going through really tough times at the minute and I’m incredibly grateful for all the things I do have in my life.

The down bits? I’ve recently lost two close family members: my lovely mum-in-law died very suddenly and totally unexpectedly in February, less than 12 hours after my grandma had also died. It’s been a total shock  and completely devastating, turning everything upside down and inside out.

There are several unpublished posts I’ve written previously about grief that I’ll probably be revisiting as things unfold.

At least I’m keeping my counsellor busy!

I’m hoping to be on here a bit more as some kind of new normality starts to form.

For now though, hello again.

I hope life is treating you well, or if it’s not that you are giving it some kind of kick-ass response in return!

    Hi. I also suffer with chronic migraine. I’m coming up to 2 years since it started this time around (I had a 9 month attack of it a few years ago but we managed to get it under control and I had 3 years of normality – almost- before it struck again) so I can relate to everything I’ve read on your blog. It’s so very hard to describe it to other people that reading your blog has made me feel like I’m less alone; although I obviously wish that neither of us had to put up with this condition! So I just wanted to say thank you for your blog and for being so open in your posts, I can empathise with all of it.

    Are you still using the gammacore? It’s next on my list of treatments to try when I see my neurologist again in October and I’m praying that it will help!

    I hope you’re doing ok ‘chronic migraine’ wise. Xx
