I have had an Achy Brain since January 4, 2006. I will never forget that day, EVER. I have struggled with Occipital Neuralgia and now I’m dealing with Trigeminal Neuralgia. Having an achy brain is no fun and it adds undo stress on every aspect of your life. I am a wife, a mother to two very active kids, and I have a sometimes stressful full time job. I struggle everyday with trying to maintain balance between work and home and trying not to let my pain affect every aspect of my life.
I also have Hashimoto Thyroiditis. I have dealt with weight gain due to my thyroid and the medications for my TN. I wish I could wave a magic wand and the weight would just go away, instead it’s a long process that I work towards everyday.
This is my journey and things that have helped me. I hope to provide some positive light for anyone suffering with this horrid disease.
