Holistic and inspiring …
A migraine is something that I never experienced in my life but I know that it is far worse than my regular headaches and I get super irritated when I have it especially when it’s nearing my period. So I am quite intrigued when I was reading this book. It gave me more information about Migraines and what one might experience when the attack comes and how a migraine can take control of your life once you succumb to it.
Now I know that every “migraineur” have different ways on how to handle the attack, and also the pain varies. My brother has migraines but it’s milder compared to what the writer experienced. I find this book very helpful to people who don’t know what to do with their migraines. Or their medicine wasn’t doing much to alleviate the pain. In this book, the writer described the pain she felt and the intensity of each. And also gave her own tips on how she handles her migraines. And by tips, I mean there’s a lot of them including what food to eat and shouldn’t. Scents, lotions, and creams you shouldn’t put on your body that might trigger a migraine. She even had her own menu and homemade products you can try so that you won’t have to worry about these things. From diet to exercise to things we ingest and put on, the book got everything covered, I find these things very helpful how much more to a migraineur.
When you live with a migraine all your life all you can do is to accept it but also realize that a migraine will control you only if you let it. So you have to make that change. And reading this book will inspire you to make that change.

The book is out today. Make sure to check it out for out.
Today I woke up from the dream of you kissing my breasts and it still lingers like I’m being kissed by the sun and it warms me up inside. You already have my mind and in with each day passing, you started to have my heart.
I have written my heart out like it’s been bruised and cut open, like a gallery of broken things. I hurt you but I’m more broken inside than you do. And isn’t that ironic? To be broken when it’s you that I’ve hurt.
I’m trying to fix it, making beauty out of disaster but the more I fix it the more I break. Because broken people can’t fix each other, they can only heal together. But you know, bruised as this heart may be, it’s still beating. And even though you’ve taken everything in me, I realized I still have more to give because I’m here and I still live.
we are a mess together
but we are a beautiful mess
a mess fit for poetry
because it’s you and me
We’re still looking at each other
but the space between us
is further away
I got high and drunk
with you in bliss
when you left
I was drowning
in a lonely abyss
A hundred seconds of Hi’s and Hello’s
A hundred minutes of bickering like foes
A hundred hours of missing you
A hundred hateful words until we’re through
A hundred songs to listen but I’m still not over you
we were slow dancing in each other’s music
carrying our feelings in different rhythms
yours ended right where I began
but I continued the dance
eyes closed, lost in the trance
I want to taste you like how lovers do
but I’m a poet who can only write for you
words to sink into your skin to lick
so you can taste my every feeling
like your own permanent fix
let’s dream of endless starlight
of a night filled with blissful smoke and desires
of long kisses and warm caresses
let’s savor touches like a brand that never goes
an imprint to match our soul
