This book was slow for me at first, but it quickly picked up. Heart of Thorns deals with love, anger, grief and shares the struggle of all women through a fantasy medieval world. Definitely a good read.

Any other Littens get chronic migraines? If so, what do you do to help get relief from the pain? My usual go-to's of rest, sleep, and heat are no longer effective.

sprainedbrain I don‘t, but I feel terrible for you! 🙁 11mo
SassyBookworm My hubs has used bc powder and caffeine. Tho his are mostly from the weather changes now 11mo
Texreader I‘m so sorry! I get them as a side effect if I miss some of my meds so I know what you are dealing with. It‘s life-draining! And incentive for me not to miss my nightly dose. I sure hope you find something that works!! 11mo

britt_brooke @Elma I thought you might have some advice for Marissa? 11mo
cassiopia I'm lucky to not suffer from migraines yet, but I do get tension headaches. I usually just put an ice pack at the base of my next to help. I don't know how you feel about piercings, but I know a few people who have suffered from really bad migraines and got the daith piercing. They said its helped with their migraines a lot. So that may be something to look into? 11mo
jessinikkip I woke up with one today. My wife immediately got me two excedrin, two aleve and a claritan because I also have allergies... Opened a mountain dew for caffeine, turned off thr lught and let me sleep anither hour or so. Usually if I catch it early, that helps. Otherwise I havent found anything 11mo
Elma Thanks for the tag @britt_brooke !! I had chronic migraines for 7 yrs. I found ice, peppermint oil, eye cover, triptans, an anti-nausea med, ginger candy, and cola or ginger ale to help. Do you see a neurologist? Mine only became episodic in the last couple months due to new preventatives that are on the market. One of the ones I'm on has a co-pay card that makes the first year free. Might be worth looking into. 11mo
mylifeas_marissa @Elma I'm actually going to see the neurologist today. He took me off of my preventative medicine because it made me lose weight, so currently I only have medicine that helps to get rid of them. I'm hoping he can suggest another type of preventative for me. 11mo
mylifeas_marissa @cassiopia I've considered getting the daith piercing again. I had it before but ended up with a concussion shortly after getting it. So I had to take it out for MRIs and the hole closed up. 11mo
Elma How'd your neurologist appointment go? 11mo
mylifeas_marissa @Elma it went well. He's switching up my one medine and taking me off of the ones that aren't working. He wants me to do physical therapy and he said my tremors I have are benign. 11mo
Elma @mylifeas_marissa That's good. I hope the new med and physical therapy helps. 11mo

I love Holly Black! I have only read her books about the Fae because I love old folklore and how she modernizes it. When I bought The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, I was a little hesitant because it was about Vampires and not the Fae. However, I did not need to worry because Holly Black created a beautiful story and did not disappoint!

P.S. This is the first e-book I have ever finished because I hate e-books usually lol.

Texreader I have enjoyed her books! 11mo

This isn't a book related post, but May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month! I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease when I was 13. Though I was treated, I still have flare ups every now and then. Please protect yourself from ticks when going outside, and don't forget to advocate for Lyme Research funding.

books.and.fluff My best friend was just diagnosed with this, she‘s had it for seven years! It definitely needs to become something more people are aware of, probably could of saved her years of suffering. 2y
mylifeas_marissa @books.and.fluff The tests they use for it are unreliable. Most people get a false negative. My test came back negative. However, since the doctors couldn't find any other cause for my Bells Palsy and I was bit 2 weeks before that, they decided it was Lyme. I never even got a bullseye. Most people don't. 2y

Night | Elie Wiesel

1. Night by Elie Wiesel always gives me the feels and brings up raw emotion from me.

2. I love Litsy because I get to interact with other bookworms, and get ideas for my next TBR.

A random act of kindness was when I had gotten out of the hospital for my depression in 2011, and a woman at my church gave me a self care present including a plaque of the Serenity Prayer.
