If ever there were a perfect highlight reel that prevented you from scrolling through the lengthy archives of my blog, it would look something like this.
So far in my journey – with migraine and my blog – we’ve moved through three incredibly unique chapters that all take on their own tone and purpose. Here I’ve broken down the key points in my story to help you get to know me a bit better so that no matter when you decided to hop on this train, you can feel connected and know the whole story.
Chapter One captures the individual who was sick, while being sick and tired of everyone else and their assumptions. The posts were angry, and closely followed the original intent of the blog: black and white photos with words used to fill in the grey to help people better understand migraine. They follow my journey through my final semester and final job, and deciding to allow my health to be my priority upon moving home. A lot of change occurs through chapter one and the transition occurred from “angry and needing space to vent” to recognizing where educational opportunities could be found and spread to those around me.
Chapter Two brings an entirely new life to my life and this blog, it captured both aspects of my life and my migraine and allowed them to build off one another while being separate entities. Although this was an incredible time full of growth and development, it was also a time where I hit rock bottom emotionally and had a lot of learning to do.
Chapter Three is really just getting started, but at the very root of this chapter is a dedication to healing and discovering who I want to be. This chapter comes out of recognizing that healing is possible and that it is inevitable.
