Cheddar Isn't Better....

Has anyone ever had a migraine? I have suffered with migraines since I was a little child. I can remember my first migraine at the age of 6. Over the years they have fluctuated in intensity, and medicine has done nothing to improve them.

As a child, I couldn't have corn, (among many others including sour cream, lunch meat, MSG, aspartame, chocolate...etc) because it will give me a instant migraine. As an adult, I didn't realize so many things were made with corn. I gave up everything with corn, and yes that includes the tortilla chips, rolled tacos, umm and everything!! I was getting about 2-3 migraines a week, and since I gave up the corn, I have only had a few. Hallelujah.

So... imagine my surprise when I got a raging migraine last night!!! I went to bed at 8:30... before my kids were even asleep. I kept mumbling to Hannah in my migraine-induced coma to lay down and be quiet and mercifully she finally konked out.

I still have a residual headache today and have wanted loads of Pepsi (but no.. I haven't had any because it is made with..... high fructose CORN syrup) My whole point to this posting.... I had cheddar cheese last night with the yummy steak tacos I made for the family. So.. mental note.. add cheddar cheese to the list. Cheddar is definitely not better for me. :)

Hands up if you get migraine... let's bang our heads on the wall together. :)
