I can't believe it has been since March that I have written anything. A lot has changed in my life. My husband got a new job, so we moved across the country back to my native state of MI. Colorado was beautiful, but I sure am happy to be back to humidity and low altitude.
The stress of the move and my mother being ill has caused several headaches over the last month, but they are starting to die down a bit. I haven't had to take a triptan in two weeks. That is wonderful. I have felt some start to come on and I've been able to control them early enough with Excedrin migraine or Benadryl, depending on the time of day.
We now live in Port Huron, MI, which is a major port city with Canada. We are less than two miles from Lake Huron and the St. Clair river. I love it! Water has always been my favorite, much more than mountains. We are still settling in, so I haven't found a new doctor yet. As a matter of fact, we still don't have our new prescription cards, so I've had to pay per pill. At least we can get reimbursed for it.
My husband's new job makes him a Senior Pastor. This is a much better setting for all of us. He loves his new work and the people there, me too. We miss our friends in CO but are very thankful for the change. Our house is amazing. It has five bedrooms and a gorgeous back yard. Each kid finally has their own room and I even have a studio. I hope to get creative real soon.
I will keep you posted as time goes on to see how the headaches pan out in this new environment. It should be easier on the body and less stress. I'm sure I'll still get one now and then but two weeks without a triptan is awesome!
