I'm constantly on the go and I maintain a very carefully structured schedule every day to make sure everything gets done.

    Dealing with a migraine as a work-at-home mom: the struggle is real. I know from experience. Many people suffer from different intensities of migraines.

    May 31, 2016
    Headaches stink and migraine headaches are the worst of all. Shortly after Hannah was born (that's actually Mimi in the photo above) I had my first migraine. I didn't know what it was. All I knew was that I had flashing lights that looked like pinwheels on the periphery of my vision.
  • Migraines & Kids: Managing the Ups & Downs

    May 31, 2016
    When Owen first started suffering from migraines, we had no idea what was going on. He had no idea what was going on. Out of the blue, he would be out for the count.
