For the month of April I'm participating in WEGO Health's Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Prompts. If you'd like more information or want to participate, too, please visit: Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge.

Today's WEGO Health Activist Writing Month Prompt is: Health Activist's Choice.

We all know by now how I feel about open ended prompts, but here goes.

Today my mom and I are in Dallas so I can get treatment from my migraine specialist Dr. Krusz. I'd been struggling so much lately that we decided it made sense to go to his clinic so I can get some IV therapy and go over other medication options, such as Savella. It's a medication approved to treat fibromyalgia, and people with fibro and other types of chronic pain have been doing well on it. I'd also like to get his opinion about occipital nerve stimulators.

I'm really lucky to have parents who are willing to do pretty much whatever it takes to help me feel as well as possible. We drove down yesterday and stayed over night. I'll be getting treatment today and tomorrow, and we'll head home tomorrow night.
