Happy No-Faint-iversary To Me!

I started reading this blogger’s page just over one year ago, when she was still having episodes, but always found a way to keep her readers laughing with her. I have been so inspired by her progress and very hard work this past year as a fellow “fighter for verticality.”
Read how this long-time POTS & Migraine survivor got upright again. Her gratitude is contagious!
Happy Anniversary

Today is a special day, Chronic Readers.

I have officially passed the threshold- I have been conscious for an entire year!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For 12 years, I have fainted, almost fainted, lost feeling in half my body/all of my body (hemiplegic migraines), and, on one memorable occasion, turned blue from lack of oxygen. However, from June 29, 2014 to June 29, 2015, I have not had one single, teeny weeny, itty bitty hint of any of that.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven’t really told anyone that this day was coming, mostly because I have semi-legitimate Chronic anxiety that the moment I said it out loud, my autonomic nervous system would hear and then shut down, wrecking my streak before it was a complete year.

I didn’t want to jinx it.

Oh, but now it is here, I am on Day 1 of Year 2 of complete consciousness, and nothing can make me cranky…

About abodyofhope

I do not know why it is that we must wade through tragic circumstances to find truth. We nearly drown! But under the water, there are pearls. I hope in writing this blog, more will come to the surface. Over the past 13 years living with chronic pain, patient advocacy has affected my life through so many remarkable young people, women and men: SURVIVORS. These individuals are HOPE personified. I wish to honor them in the same spirit they have encouraged me to press on. Six years ago, I became bed-bound from a variety of chronic illnesses after a procedure meant to help the pain condition I had been managing for several years- went bust #BIGTIME. In the last 6 years, my entire life has changed. I have changed, but I am still striving to live my best life possible. Along with sharing inspiring pieces, medical/holistic research, and awareness articles, this blog is also an attempt to put my own pieces back together. Welcome to A Body of Hope, and thank you for visiting. [Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/ RSD, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Dysautonomia, Chronic Intractable Migraine, Cluster headache, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Occipital Neuralgia, Hypersensitivity to Sound & Light, Fibromyalgia, Cerebrospinal Fluid Imbalance......blah, blah, blah] >>> P.S. My headgear is protective for pain. I just rock it hard.
