This post will be short and sweet today because I am still having migraine problems. It appeared to me that my migraine that started on Friday (10/5) was over Monday (10/8). It was a very long weekend and I stayed in bed the whole time. I don’t know what was worse staying in bed or the head pain, I was about to climb the walls, I was so restless!
Monday was better, but Tuesday was perfect. I felt like my old self, and I was knocking off many items on my to-do list.
Wednesday dawned and first thing after I dropped my daughter off at school, I go to a bible study at a friends house. Everything was going well, until towards the end. I could feel the headache coming back. My friends prayed for me and I packed up and left.
About an hour later, I had to pick up my daughter from school. While I was waiting, I was feeling worse and worse. I called my Aunt, who is an RN, and she suggested I make an appointment with my doctor because this came on suddenly for me and I have no history of migraines.
I was able to get an appointment for Monday and cleared my schedule for the rest of the day to rest. Nothing worked to ease the pain, so I asked my husband to take me to urgent care the following morning.
Thursday morning, after the doctor’s assessment, I was given a “migraine cocktail” which consists of three shots. One for nausea, one for pain, and one for sleep. It did help, my migraine went away, but I am still suffering with other side effects.
I am still keeping my appointment for Monday because I still don’t feel well. I still don’t know why I am going through these migraines. Please pray for me.
My reading, writing and driving are still effected because of the migraines. If I made mistakes in my writing, please blame it on the migraine, LOL!
I was encouraged today by the October 14 devotional in Jesus Calling by Sarah Young:
Be prepared to suffer for Me, in my Name. All suffering has meaning in My kingdom. Pain and problems are opportunities to demonstrate your trust in Me. Bearing your circumstances bravely–even thanking Me for them–is one of the highest forms of praise.
When suffering strikes, remember that I am sovereign and that I can bring good out of everything. Do not try to run from your pain or hide from problems. Instead, accept adversity in My Name, offering it up to Me, for My purposes. Joy emerges from the ashes of adversity through your trust and thankfulness.
I trust You, Jesus. Thank you that You are always with me. Give wisdom, guidance, and discernment to my doctors on Monday morning. Thank you for loving me!
All the glory to God!

Praying for you! “Be still and know that I am God!” I believe God works on so many things in are life at once when his quiet command is “be still”. I realise the migraine is what is keeping you down and I am sorry..I have had them and they are debilitating in different ways for each of us… I hope you are able to maybe listen to some quiet music(super soft)just to keep you mind occupied and in quiet contientplation. I know when I have them my thoughts are unfocused,worried and often loud.I love you!
Becoming His Tapestry
I will pray for you, Shanon. I use to suffer from migraines when I was in my teens and I understand the frustration in lying still and the pain that’s associated with it. I certainly will pray and hope you feel better soon. May the Lord bless you
