Remembering April Cleave

December 16th 2014 21:51
April Cleave



I wrote about April Cleave(25 years old) here when I first started this blog. I was researching about migraine & came across an article about April's death. She died 7 years ago yesterday, after being treated for migraine at the Emergency Room. She was given 2 shots of morphine & sent home. April slipped into a coma & died. The morphine had conflicted with her prescription.


I am friends with her sister on Face Book and the family has an April Cleave Memorial Page. April's two young children have had to grow up without their mom, but they are surrounded by a wonderful family!

I am lighting a candle in memory of April tonight & will each night until Christmas. This is the link to April's memorial page.

Stress & Migraine

December 1st 2014 18:41



This time of year, so many things my mom used to say come into my mind. Because of the stress holidays bring, I guess that's why I keep hearing her say "Even good stress is still stress." And I find that it's true. I know that stress is a trigger for me. Now, we all know that stressful situations like finances, illness, relationship problems are triggers. But even positive changes or situations can be triggers.


A promotion at work, moving to a place you feel good about, even a nice visit with family or friends may be a stress trigger for migraine. So, during the holidays, you may want to keep that in mind.

Maybe keep your schedule light or at least have time in between visits or events. Even if you're going away to visit with loved ones, you may not want to pack your schedule too full. Putting yourself first is not selfish, it is self preservation. It is important for your health.

So, enjoy and take time to take it easy.

Migraine Please Go Away!

Migraine Hits


Well, I have been hit with a high level migraine. My face, my head, all down my neck and back hurts. It is a throbbing pain. I am doing my best to do what I need to do to keep it lower. But I feel like it is weather related. It's not unusual for weather to trigger a migraine. The weather this year is back and forth, cold, warm, rain, snow.

I cannot take most medicines for allergies or sinus problems. The pain is so tiring. Tomorrow we go to our daughter's for Thanksgiving. I won't be eating much.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Meditation May Help Migraineurs

October 27th 2014 16:34


In September 2014 Science Daily did an article on research conducted by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, migraine relief through meditation. "Stress is a well-known trigger for headaches and research supports the general benefits of mind/body interventions for migraines, but there hasn't been much research to evaluate specific standardized meditation interventions," said Rebecca Erwin Wells, M.D., assistant professor of neurology at Wake Forest Baptist and lead author of the study published in the online edition of the journal Headache
