I’m a wife and mother of a 7-year-old daughter and a 14 year old dog named Queso. I have endured chronic migraine disorder for over 20 years. I’ve probably fired more doctors than years some of you have been alive! LOL! It took 20 years to get diagnosed with Chronic Migraine. I’ve had doctors tell me to get married and have kids and your headaches will go away. Ha! I’ve worked in the IT industry as a Senior Systems Administrator for over 18 years. I also love it when IT people who don’t know me well enough mansplain how firewalls work, and how servers work. LOL!
I experienced my first migraine at age 11. I write to help migraine suffers from around the world that you ARE NOT alone! I’ve recently started a journey of becoming a Migraine Advocate. I also don’t want you to waste your money on crap and gimmicks that people tell you will help your migraines (ZOK, I’m lookin at ya) No one should have to suffer daily like myself and many others do from this debilitating disease. I also enjoy laughing and making others laugh! I’m serious enough of the time! When I feel well I enjoy walking, yoga, reading, writing and spending time with my family.
Here is an article I wrote that was published by GrokNation.
