An Introvert Morning Routine I Love

Tea is part of my morning routine.

I’m an Introvert, 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 putting […]

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 […]

If you’re a Highly Sensitive Person, finding a job that’s a good fit for you can be a little daunting. We are sensitive to many things in our environment, so how do we maneuver through the minutia to find something […]

Chronic Head Pressure Might be More than a Migraine Headache (Symptoms, Part 1)

Head pressure headaches masquerading as migraines.

That’s what I repeatedly heard over many years. It’s a tension headache. It’s a migraine. Your migraine has just changed over time. And, it did, eventually, into chronic and intense head pressure with a headache “overlay”, if you will. As I look back, it’s difficult not be infuriated. My headaches started in 2011, after I moved across the country for my husband’s job. I would get sore and tender around the neck and shoulder area, and the pain would move up the back of my head and cause painful headaches. It would last for a few days, then I would […]

How it Really Feels to be an Introvert in Captivity During Covid19

Introvert Covid19

Ever since this whole covid19 pandemic started, little jokes about the introvert knowing how to manage in a time of isolation have gone around the internet, repeatedly. I guess, to some extent, it’s true. Introverts do know how to be alone, but this lockdown is much more extreme than what’s considered normal, even for introverts. Being an introvert during covid19 like we are, I find myself suffering from cabin fever, which is kind of a new concept for me. I actually miss running errands. I feel my motivation for writing waning, and my ideas are few and far between. I […]
