my anxious heart

Well played. Words don’t always express how a person truly feels. Sometimes seeing is believing and I believe you have hit the nail on the head.

Spring of 2015 has been busy, trying, amazing and life changing. I have been through so many emotional peaks and valleys and finalizing my senior year has been such a cathartic experience. My Anxious Heart is nothing short of my child. I have battled anxiety for a decade, and I finally have been able to capture it and expose it in the light. I want to thank every single person who has been a part of this journey.

Some Changes

I have suffered from migraines for the past twenty years. I was finally able to see a headache specialist this last week.  I had to wait three months for the appointment and I had plenty of notes to work off of when meeting with the doctor.  After answering a full hours worth of questions he informed me that he wanted me to try some life changes first before discussing any needs for other treatment.  The biggest change will be to stop drinking Dr. Pepper which coincidentally I have also been drinking for the past twenty years.

So here I am on day four without Dr. Pepper.  I am so sluggish and tired and have had two headaches already.  He said that might happen as my body adjusts to the change.  I am also drinking more water so that should help as well.

I will be back to see him in two months.  Let’s see if we can get these migraines under control.


Creation of this page, of a new me, of new ideas, of a new language. Creation of a better life for myself and my family.

I hope to share my love of language, appreciation renewed in art, discovery of cooking and lots of in between things that make me who I am.
