Unexpected Ways Minimalism Liberates the Introvert Mind

introverts and minimalism

Introverts need minimalism, but before we get to why, what is your minimalism “style”? People interpret minimalism in different ways. Some see it as a lifestyle, with little to no attachment to things; a life you can easily walk away from. For me, that’s an extreme version of minimalism and not really my style. Some view it as form vs. function. Keep some things, but only the things that are functional. It can also be beautiful, but first and foremost, it must be useful. Others find minimalism to be a balance of having a certain amount of things. For some, […]

A New Approach to Intracranial Pressure I Now Believe in (Treatment, Part 3)

Healing Intracranial Pressure

I’m sure you’ve just shown up after reading Part 2 of my “headache” story, where I discussed my diagnosis of C1/C2 instability, and the intracranial pressure that was being caused by the obstruction of cerebral spinal fluid flow via the atlas misalignment, brain scarring, and degenerative and damaged upper cervical discs causing even more obstruction of CSF through the spinal canal. This is the final post in my short series on what started out as a migraine headache, but ended up being something entirely different. It was never a migraine or tension headache. It was intracranial pressure with a very […]

The Challenge of Getting MBTI Certified as an INFJ

Getting MBTI Certified

I talk about many things on this blog, and they usually revolve around my own experience as an INFJ. This is another one of those experiences. I got MBTI certified about a year ago. Personally, becoming MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Instrument) certified was a challenging task for me, given my anxiety, but it was more than the certificate for me. My Interest was an Accident I learned I was an INFJ only a few years ago, through a test that my college-aged daughter wanted me to take after learning about MBTI in one of her college courses. I took multiple […]

An Introvert Morning Routine I Love

Tea is part of my morning routine.

I’m an Introvert (INFJ), and I’m highly sensitive. No surprise, but this adds to the importance of having a strong morning routine, which is not always easy for me. I’ve never really been “a morning person”. My husband is, in fact, a BIG morning person. Neither one of us gets much sleep, but somehow he manages to always wake up, rarin’ to go, with a big smile on his face, and a big cup of coffee in his hand. I don’t get it. I really don’t even start to feel like myself until I’ve had a shower, but I’ve started […]

A Chronic Pressure Headache May be More than a Migraine (Diagnosis, Part 2)

Diagnosis for Pressure Headache

In Part 1, we ended with a list of symptoms, mainly surrounding a chronic pressure headache. This lead me to getting in contact with a chiropractor in NY, Dr. Rosa, who performs MRI-guided Atlas Orthogonal adjustments and had helped create a form of trauma imaging, that shows the flow of CSF. I spent a few months getting new MRIs (2018) locally, and sent them to New York, while going back and forth on the phone with their office, trying to get all the information I needed in planning the trip. This all occurred over the holidays of 2018-2019, but I […]
