Of a Blank Mind Lately

Lately, I haven't had the motivation or any thoughts to blog. That disappoints me. Things have been trying to settle down a bit. My cousin is doing much, much better. I visted him a week ago at which time we sat at the table and discussed his bills and the repairs that need to be made his house before he goes home.

The daycare is doing very well at this time. The bills are getting paid quite regularly and the mortgage is doing well so far. The cars are doing well. The Jetta needs an adjustment since having the transmission serviced. The motorhome is finally back home. I need to clean the inside really good. There are a few small repairs to the cabin that needs to be done, but no hurry.

I've been having lots of migraine lately. Making me really nervous. I looked up a few things about migraines last night. Apparently, it has a lot to do with diet. Foods to avoid are chocolate, chicken, processed sandwich meats, of course sodium, fermented foods like yogurt and cheese, citrus fruits, fried foods, etc. All of these things are regular items in our diets....even "chilled" beverages!

They suggested herbs like lavender and camomile for relaxation. Also vitamin B Complex and fish oil for the brain. There were other herbs that encourage oxygen to the brain too.

I will have to start monitoring, perhaps writing down, what I eat. Then checking to see if what I eat corresponds to a migraine. Simple enough.

With that food list, it cuts it down a lot. Yikes! Happy hunting for the brain food.

Thanks ladies for your support. Yes, it cuts WAY down on all the GOOD food, especially chocolate! LOL!

I have to avoid anything processed that has colouring, chemical additives, high fat and a variety of unnatural foods. No cheeses which I miss. No red meat.

So I have had to learn to cook everything from scratch. It is a bit time consuming but it seems to work.

However, I can eat dark chocolate. But too much and I have a headache and a stomach ache the next day.

I have only had a migraine half a dozen times in my life. I really do feel for you - they are just awful.
