Hi, my name is Alivia Wagoner, I’m 24, a mom to a 3 year old daughter and soon to be baby boy.
I used to be so active, I worked in the family business moving houses, then a store. I’ve always had headaches my whole life, as a child I also had nose bleeds first one at 9 months old in my crib. I also have anxiety and anxiety attacks. I was officially diagnosed with chronic migraines in 2012, along with insomnia.
I have always struggled with sleeping and head pain, but as the years past the head pain has just gotten worse, I am now in pain 24/7 365. I haven’t had a day with no pain in years, I don’t even remember what that’s like, I’ve seen 3 neurologists and soon to be 4, they haven’t really been as helpful as I’d wished, I’ve kinda been on my own, I stay home most of the time with my daughter due to migraine pain, aura, and fatigue. I can go blind I’m one eye it it gets bad or I strain my eyes to much and that is super dangerous being out and driving in that condition.
I have an amazing husband who not only supports our family but supports me and is caring and kind and loving and always there for me through my struggles, I couldn’t be without him. I’m a young mom who struggles with so much, the worst so being so young but unable to do much in the way of activities, even at home I am easily tired and have to set down, and that’s hard to swallow when you used to be so active and alive. But struggle in as all spoonie so do, and we make the best of it. We are there for each other because no one else truly knows what we are going through.
