Entry #12 (Findings from Research Level 11)
They say routine, routine, routine and then they say routine again. This includes a well monitored food and sleep schedule but we all know how challenging that can be depending on an array of circumstances. Your job alone may not allow for such a routine to exist. One user's story in particular was quite resonant. He has been a sufferer for over 56 years and speaks on the importance of such a routine. (a routine in action and in thinking patterns) He claims that migraine sufferers must act right away on everything and anything. Never putting things off or procrastinating them until later. He says to resigning away from lost things and things lost; in turn, practicing non-attachment which happens to be a buddhist concept. He says to take clothes out of the dryer when doing laundry, to keep a large calendar, to keep a back-up for everything (even ketchup in the cupboard, having one in the fridge and one in the cupboard). Although all of these may seem a little like overdoing it, I can see the logic in decreasing possible stressors. Some users spend up to $70,000 in medical bills trying to solve their plague. One user spent $1500 for an 8 hour visit at a world renown facility. I continue to monitor my migraines and apply certain wisdom all drawn from different parts of the world including my own backyard.
