Time flies suddenly.
Only 3 months to go! ? ?
The most important part, we have finally found a car! ?
She is already completely checked and she’s ready for it.
The car will be attacked with some stickers, so he also stands out and can promote our sponsors. ?
There is still room for more stickers, so if you know someone, or you want to advertise on our car, email me. ?
The car will also undergo a metamorphosis inside, in the back the Hubby will built a bed so we can sleep when it’s needed.
The route goes through Russia, though there is also an alternative route through Finland, but it seems cool to drive to Russia.
The only hassle is the visa and I, ofcourse, got myself in a awkard situation.
Hubby requested the first part of the visa, I got an email to confirm and then I got another email that I read, stupid, to quick. ?
In the mail was an attachment with someones passport. I was startled a bit and read no further, I mailed back that the mail was probably not intended for me.
Hubby also got the mail with the same passport, but he read it through, it turned out the passport was sent as an example. ?
I emailed back to tell that I am stupid and didn’t read the email properly, but that the passport had distracted me.
They didn’t mailed me back, so I can only hope I’m allowed into Russia. ?
Besides that we are busy preparing everything.
As soon as the weather gets better Hubby will build the bed in the car. (The benefits of a handy man. ?)
We can borrow camping gear from a dear friend, so now we only need to focus on the promotion of our campaign. ?
I have received some messages from fellow-migrainepatients and it becomes so clear there really is a need for attention to this illness.
It gives me a feeling to finally do something with my migraines, use it for a good cause.
Unfortunately, this does not mean my migraine is gone. ?
I want to do so much and I have the enthusiasm, but when I’m having an attack a lying in the dark, everything drops below zero. How do I get get it all done? ?
Well at times when I’m quite ok, like right now.
Unfortunately I was lying down yesterday, I’m still a little stoned of the meds, so I’m not very quick, but I’m already happy I can sit up straight.
I have recorded some small videos at the start, or just after a migraine attack, to show what migraine is, instead of just writing about it.
The idea is nice, but during an attack grabbing my phone is really too much and I also lie in the dark, so filming does not make much sense, because you can’t see anything. ?
Hubby tried to make a video and put on a small light.
I fortunately have an eyemask on, because light can feel like a ice pick that cuts right into your skull, but all for a good cause. ?
The videos are as good as ready, but posting it is a thing. ?
Writing can still somewhat anonymous, but with my face on the internet, in this case something very personal, is quite scary. (Showing my crazy side, I don’t mind. ?)
I just need some courage to do so.
Besides my none existing courage to post the videos (not yet, that is..), we’re doing all we can.
We have printed flyers and spreading them around, but going door to door has to wait, because Miss Clumsy herself broke her toe. (Something with being a klutz.. ?)
Update; Our campaign is over, but there’s still enough to read about our adventure. ?
