A Contest, An Excerpt of Broken Butterfly, But First an Update ...

Good morning, Y'all.

Headaches are apart of my everyday life. I'm learning to live with them. I have no choice.

I've tried countless things. It makes me cringe when I think of all the time and money we've invested to find a solution ... to find relief. We always tell my Neurologist thank you as we're leaving his office. At the last visit he said, "You are nice people. You always thank me, though I've done nothing to help you."

Botox didn't work. Although my doctor and I both had high expectations for it, there's been no change. I've tried it twice. It is a very painful process, with 36 injections into my scalp, neck, and forehead.

My latest attempt was to see an Allergy Specialist after hearing that migraines could be caused by food allergies. All the tests (a total of 60) were negative, except one. Dogs. Lol. That's not the problem. I've had a dog for 14 years.

He suggested I try a gluten-free diet for 4 weeks. I started last Sunday. My headache is still hanging around, but I'm feeling better. I've still had a few bad days, but the rest have been better than normal.

I plan to eliminate other food sources to see if it makes a difference, but only one thing at a time. Gluten free isn't easy. But I've found some interesting ways to enjoy some of my favorites. Instead of a bowl of soup with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I have a bowl of soup and a spoon of peanut butter. :)

Now, enough about that. I'm in the mood to give away a prize. And it's the perfect time, because I need your help to get the word out there about Broken Butterfly.
