I’m sitting in a dentist chair waiting for my examination and I can’t help but to think about my sudden migraine attack earlier this afternoon.
After lunch I suddenly felt faint and a throbbing pain in my right eye which indicated an oncoming migraine. I waited too long to take some Excedrin Migraine pills and suddenly I felt that the little bit of lunch I just had would come up as I kept running to the bathroom, worshipping the Porcelain King. I’ve NEVER experienced a migraine of this amplitude…
And it’s all because of grief. I guess I’m not handling this well, guess I’m really not as strong as people keep telling me. Whelp, my grief counseling begins on Friday…. relief is in sight….hopefully sooner than later….

Stay strong! Talking about it is a step in the right direction. I second the above advice, Self Care ^^^
What does strong look like in the face of grief? I really don’t know what it means…. 🙁
To me, it is the ability to keep moving forward despite everything in your path. You are showing your strength in so many ways, by keeping up with your blog and allowing others to take the journey with you. <3<3<3
Thank you for your opinion, I understand what you’re saying and I highly appreciate it! Thank you so much Laura for the time you take to read and respond to my posts especially in these times!!!! <3.
There are no norms specifying how one would handle grief “well”. It is just your own way, and that is all that matters, now you just have to learn how to respond to that and help yourself feel better. Hang in there!! 🙂
Sometimes I feel like I’m failing because I’m not as strong as others perceive me to be. I feel like I’m not the uplifting Superwoman everyone likes to think that I am. I’m human. I just lost my first and greatest love, adjusting to an existence that she is no longer a part of us difficult beyond words yet, this is my new journey. My journey.
Thank you Eliza! I can’t believe I’m just now seeing this comment however it’s in perfect time, in the perfect moment!
I love you and you ARE doing this perfectly! You’ve had two significant losses in a very short period of time. And I even had a migraine yesterday – we’re also running upgrades… yikes, no rest but do try to rest. Self-care. XOXO
Thank you Molly, I love you too! 💖💖💖
