The Coming and Going of Blogs

For the past 4 years I've been blogging here. I've been sharing my thoughts, my feelings, my ideas and my insights as they happen. I share about my experiences with chronic migraines and fibromyalgia. I share recipes, stories about my family and our fur babies and pictures of projects we work on. Basically, I've been sharing my entire life with all of you wonderful readers. I've wanted to paint a full and honest picture of the ups and downs of my journey to live the best I can despite my chronic pain.

As soon as I created Migrainista I went in search of other migraine and chronic pain blogs. Right away I found several strong, courageous women out there blogging about their lives and experiences. Reading these blogs I felt like I got to know these women and found myself learning and growing through their experiences. But, time being time, things have changed over these past 4 years. Most of the bloggers I started following in that first year are no longer blogging. For the most part I don't know why they stopped but I find myself thinking about these women and wondering how they are.

Just as suddenly as some blogs stop, other blogs start up and I find myself getting to know new women and learning from their experiences. I guess in that way the world of blogging is a lot like interacting in the real world. Our lives intersect with the lives of others for a period of time until our journeys take us in different directions. Each intersection being unique and of varied duration.

Now I can't predict just how long I'll be here sharing as the Migrainista but one thing has become clear to me - I love connecting with all of you through this blog. I hope to be here with you for many years to come.


  1. I am glad you will be here for a while since I enjoy reading your blog!!!


  2. I love checking in here too. I often think "I should update my blog" but life somehow gets in the way. This may be my nudge!
