Well…it has been almost 3 months since I even logged on to my little space on the internet! Life has just been so hectic! I feel like I have done more breaks from blogging than actually blogging. Things are starting to look up and I’m hoping that will change soon! I love having this little space as an outlet to write and share and connect with you! Here is what has been happening with the Allens lately!
If you have been following since the beginning or we are friends in real life, you know that over a year ago I woke up with a headache and it really hasn’t gone away since. Some days are better than others, and lately I am having more good days than bad. At some point I’d like to sit down and write a post on everything that I have tried and gone through in case there is someone out there that could find comfort in the fact that they’re not alone!I switched doctors and found the most amazing and compassionate doctor. He has literally saved my life and I know that I will be forever grateful for the help that he has given me. Most recently, I had my second round of Botox and am on a new medication (which is actually an Alzheimer’s medication) that seems to may be working! Typically it takes about 6 weeks to know if you’ll have success with Botox. As far as the next steps goes, it is kind of up in the air. The next steps that have been discussed would be going to an inpatient program in Michigan that only focuses on migraines and finding the right medication at a fast pace. This is really a last case scenario for me because I am worried that If I am pulled from my everyday life that I may not have the same issues with my migraines! So fingers and toes are crossed that this second round of Botox and this new medication helps! Also, I’d love to hear anything you’ve tried for migraines if you get them! Even though I have tried so many things, you never know what will end up helping in the end!

Meet Poppie! Last month when Hurricane Florence was coming through, a local rescue posted that they were trying to find foster homes during the storm. We wanted to help however we could and took her in for the weekend! Well, after about 30 minutes we decided that there was no way she was going back! She has been so fun and we love her so much!
There has obviously been so much more going on around here, but I’ll save that for another day!
