I have posted before about the fact that I suffer from migraines. And I don't use those words lightly!!
It is such a horrible experience each and every time I get a migraine, and is compounded by the need to care for my daughter at the same time.
When Maddie was a baby I was getting them quite badly. I had a doula help me out in those early weeks, and then I just had to kind of figure it out myself ever since.
I remember having to try and find my way into her room without being able to see, place her on a (numb and tingly) breast and hope that I was doing it right, I had no idea in those moments what I was doing.
These days things are a little easier because Maddie can understand a lot more now. This morning I woke up with a migraine that was already in full swing, and so just had to kind of accept it.
