Who's That Lady?

The picture in the top left of my Blog is my wonderful, kind, sweet Grandmother.  This was harvest time on my grandparents farm in White Gate, Virginia.  A teeny, tiny rural area in Giles County.   I have always loved this picture of Grandma!  She was the sweetest lady ever.  I never heard her say an unkind thing about anyone. 

She's been gone for 3 years now and I miss her every day.....

I want to thank so many of you for emailing me and inquiring about my migraines.  It is so nice to hear from so many who care!

My migraines are doing SO much better!  I think my Dr. has finally found  the perfect "cocktail" of medications and vitamins that have decreased the migraines from every day or every other day to just once per week.  Even then, it is very mild and I can take just one of my rescue medications and it's gone within the hour!  Last week all I had to take was an Advil!

Just in case anyone is having trouble with them, this is what I take.  Inderol, which is to decrease my heart rate.  Apparently my heart was working overtime.  The rest is just vitamins and supplements.  Magnesium, Vitamin B-12 complex, and an herb called Butter Bur.  I also drink at least 60 ozs of water per day.  Of course everyone is different but the Dr. says magnesium and butterbur are key elements in the control of migraines.  That's it!  I can not tell you how much better I feel physically and mentally.  The difference is like day and night. 

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Hi Linda,

I really like that picture on your blog and it's so neat that it's your grandma. I'm so happy you've found relief for your migrains. Thankfully I've only had a few in my lifetime, but it's enough to know the torture you've gone through. My little sister suffers from them, so I'll pass on the info, thank you.

Have a lovely day,

Oh, I am so glad you are feeling better. I've noticed that many of the ladies on the blogs struggle with different illnesses and health issues. I am lucky so far to be in good health, but I have to say how much I admire you. You have been very brave and oh, so sweet to me and many others. Your grandma would be proud of you. I miss both of mine very, very much.
