Update on OWOH :) (and life in general)

I'm participating in the One World One Heart Giveaway for the first time this year - and I'm having a blast! As of writing this post I've had 174 entries in my giveaway, and that's mind blowing! Want to hear something even more mind blowing? Are you sure your ready for it? There are currently 890 blogs participating in this event! The numbers just stagger me. Wow.

If you want to go look at pretty blogs and have a chance to win AWESOME prizes - visit the main site to see the full list!

Have you entered my contest yet? Remember - only entries on the original post will be valid! Here's the link :) I'll take all comers! And who knows...if the numbers get as high as I've seen on other blogs I might just throw in another prize....

That's the fun stuff :) The not so fun stuff is that I'm continuing to battle migraine issues. I saw a nice doctor lady yesterday and she gave me a med that does help - but I can't take it more than 3 times a month because it'll interact with other meds and all that sort of fun stuff. So while yesterday was a blissfully pain-free day because I did take one, today is back to my brain melting because I'm trying to only take the med if I absolutely have to. *sigh* Good news is their referring me to neurology :D Apparently there are daily meds I could take, but since my medical history is so freaking complex they'd rather have a specialist prescribe that. Which is fine with me because I'd like a better educated guess as to what's going on...but I also want the pain gone! So now it's back to the old "waiting for the insurance to approve it" game...

In the mean time I'm managing to get an amazing amount of stuff done in and around my brain melting! I have some new items I'm really excited about unveiling this weekend in the shop :D Now here's hoping that my brain re-forms long enough for me to get the pictures!

That giveaway sounds incredible! My fingers are still crossed that I win! I also hope the neurologist will be able to give you something to stop your migraines.

That giveaway sounds really cool--I'm off to check it out.

in the meantime, I'm very sorry to hear of your brutal migraines. i know it is different for every one, but just in case it could prove helpful to you, let me tell you the two things that most helped me with my migraines (I didn't respond well to the various migraine medications my doc tried).

The first, and biggest, help came from an unexpected source--i quit eating dairy and wheat because I discovered they were causing some other health issues but after a few months on the new diet it dawned on me that my migraines were all but gone (I used to get them weekly, now it's every other month or so). The other thing that really helped was petodolex, or petradolex, something like that--you can get it at health food stores--but not all brands are created equal, so it's worth doing a little research on. It's a common migraine treatment in Germany or something like that--and much to my surprise, it really helps, as long as you get it in the early stages of the migraine.

Good luck!
