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. Geniculate Neuralgia and Glossopharyngeal 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.
