Selfcare for chronic or severe migraines

It’s been a crappy kind of week with this lingering migraine that’s been around since Sunday. I don’t know why but it could be the weather. My sister just asked the group chat how everyone was feeling and she complained of migraines this week too. I’ve not been sleeping well for a couple of weeks…

Insomnia aftermath: considering a self-lobotomy

Good morning dear readers. It’s 8:00 am on Tuesday morning and I’m wide awake. You might think that I’m turning a new leaf but not really. I haven’t been to bed yet. Actually that’s not true. I have been to bed. But once again, I tossed and turned for two hours before finally crawling out…

Sleep? Who needs sleep?

Here were are again. I’m wide awake at nearly 5:00 am. I don’t get it. I really don’t. I did everything right yesterday. Or today? Is it still today? I’m confused. I’m not even tired. It’s like I got this sudden burst of energy. Maybe it’s creative energy. I’ve been pouring a lot of my…

Living Well: Hot Flashes – what are they, and how to treat them

Living Well: What is PCOS?

What is PCOS? Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a very complicated disorder to diagnose. Every case is different. I run a support on an adult website for ladies with PCOS and let me tell you – after surveying them, I learned that each case is so different. When I was diagnosed back in 2009, there wasn’t…
