Thursday’s Tips and Tricks: Even When Discouraged, Keep Trying New Methods/Treatments 

The Daily Migraine is a site that brings hope and encouragement to people who suffer from chronic migraines. Even though I have chronic headaches with sporadic migraines, meaning I’m not their EXACT audience, this site is so relatable for anyone who suffers from any type of headache. 

It’s where I picked up this weeks “tips and tricks” idea:

  
When we feel like we can’t try anymore. When we think “what the hell is the point of trying another medication, another therapy, or any other treatment thrown our way?” When we feel like there’s no point in trying anymore. 

This is when we must push ourselves to try even harder. 

I have tried so many medications that I don’t even remember all of them. Honestly, my doctor will say “oh have you tried medication___?” And I say “No, what’s that?” And then they will say “Oh wait, I see in your records you tried that a few years ago” yeah.. It’s sad. 

I’ve seen specialists, GP’s, holistic doctors, etc. I’ve tried it all. Explored it all. Or have I?

There’s always something new to try and you owe it to yourself, to your body, to your mind, to try it all (given its safe for you.) 

Listen to your doctors (when you have a good relationship with them.) Do your own research. Keep on trying.
