Life update: I use Instagram as a platform to share my story of all of my obstacles I’ve overcome and still overcoming. I want to give hope to people that are hurting. To bring awareness about mental illness and hopefully be a voice. I talk a lot about Jesus because He’s the reason why I am the way I am today, and sharing His perfect love is so important. As many of you may know... I’ve been suffering from chronic migraines for awhile now. It’s been a very long 5 years, and most of them were spent in bed because my migraines were so debilitating that I was bedridden. On top of all that, my anxiety disorder started to become way out of hand because of all the pain I was in 24 hours a day. I went to see so many doctors and tried all the pills you can imagine. Nothing worked and left me extremely defeated and useless. I ended up going to a pain management doctor and he put me on methadone. If y’all aren’t familiar with that drug, they give it to people that are hooked on heroine and are trying to detox from illegal drugs. You aren’t supposed to ever get off that pill. I took it for about a year and a half and it wrecked my body and I hated taking it every single day. I finally found a surgery called the Omega Procedure where they stick wires under your skin that sends pulses to the brain to help with migraines. We went down to Texas to have the surgery and it worked! Now that I got the surgery, I could finally get off of methadone. It took about eight months and two trips to the heart hospital for me to detox from that pain pill. It was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life! To this day, I still have toxins in my gut from that pill. That’s why I’m on this cleanse where I don’t eat sugar, gluten, or dairy. It’s called Candida and you can look it up but the side effects are low energy, migraines, anxiety, and the list goes on. For someone who was super active and ran every single morning since the age of 14, it’s been difficult not just physically, but mentally as well. The only thing that kills the toxins is greens, so basically I’m a real life bunny. Recovery is not a race or a competition. It takes time and patience and I have faith that Jesus will heal me.
