– I’m not saying that cooking is gonna fix my migraine, but, cooking is a huge passion of mine so it’ll lift my spirits. (upbeat music) Going on an adventure. – Oh you’ve got freezing cold hands. (laughing) Good Friday morning everyone. Oh, man I had a not great night. That headache turned into a migraine for most of the night. But thankfully, when I
woke up it was just a good ‘ol headache. Not a migraine anymore. So I’m feeling kind of run down today. But I can rest today
because before we left to go see Janice and Paul, I cleaned the house and pretty much got all the chores done, which is nice. And I’m logging on the G7X, which I got yesterday. So I’m very happy about that. This camera’s heavier than the one I’ve been using. So, that might take some getting use to. But, really glad to have it back. And good news. I think the glitch we had
on our YouTube channel here has been fixed. Because I went to look at the 9/29 blog. The Life Hacks one. I could watch the whole thing
on my phone and computer. And then the 9/30 blog,
where I was sworn in as an American citizen, could watch the whole thing. So if y’all could go watch those blogs and tell me how they look, let me know. But I think the glitch has been fixed. I haven’t gotten an email
from YouTube support yet, saying anything, but, I think it’s fixed. Which is very, very, very relieving. And I stopped doing professional captions just until the glitch was fixed. Because I didn’t want
to pay for the captions just to have the videos cut off. But since they’re working again, back to professional captions. Sorry for the inconvenience
of the gap there. I have a box here and
it’s from Kate Farms, which, that’s the company who supplies my feeding tube formula. They were so kind in
the transition process. Like, they helped out a lot. So, I had no idea they
were sending me anything. I wanna, I’m gonna open
this and see what it is. Paper. Oh, look at this. How incredibly sweet of them. I got a tote bag and two hats. So, does that mean it’s a hat
for Judd or a hat for Hippo? Gimme that! She says it’s a hat for Hippo. How incredible. They are such a kind,
down to earth company. They really care about their people. So if y’all don’t know, Kate Farms reached out to me. Oh I don’t have the flip screen up. Look, I’m so used to doing
it without the flip screen. Kate Farms reached out to me. ‘Cause one of y’all, one of you told Kate
Farms this girl’s trying to transition over but
she’s having trouble with insurance and all this stuff. And they reached out to me
and helped with the process. And, like, gave me free samples, to hold me over until
insurance approved my formula. And they were just so,
so helpful and kind. And like, answered my questions, about the formula and everything. They’re a really nice,
down to earth company. And their formula has been, I mean, y’all have seen the improvements I’ve made from being on their formula. It’s just very, very wholesome nutrition. That works for me. I mean, everybody’s different. So there’s not one
formula that’s gonna work for everyone. But it’s working well for me. And I’m so thankful to
be involved with such a nice company. Ooh. My headache. It got, bad again. So I retreated to the couch. Icepack. Actually fell asleep a bit. And I woke up, like 10 minutes ago, and it wasn’t too terrible anymore. But just kind of just like. So today will be a resting day for me head and what not. Plus, just like, traveling, usually takes a lot out of me. So it’ll be good to rest a bit while my body recuperates. Even though I like, enjoy traveling and seeing Janice. It’s just, a lot. So, be good to rest. But what I do want to do today is resume the work I was doing
for my feeding tube video. Now that I have my camera back, I have so many things I wanna
do for my channel for y’all. I wanted to finish my feeding tube video. I wanna do a relationship
Q & A for Judd and I. I wanna make a Welcome
to My Channel video, where people can learn, like, what it my channel about. What’s my upload schedule. Basically, answer questions
people have about my channel when they first come to it. I want to make a chronic
illness cure video, ’cause I have a service dog year video. I wanna make one for my
chronic illness year. And I’d include things like, the ice packs I use, and my heating pads, and my shower chair. And I know y’all want me
to do a draw my life video. I have not figured out how to do that. First of all, I don’t draw well at all. I guess I would do like a
voiceover on my editing software. But it’s in the works. Like its, I have a list of videos
I really wanna make. And now that my camera’s
back, we can get started. If y’all watched for a while you know me. Making these new video’s takes a while, ’cause I can only do a
little bit at a time. That’s what my body allows. So I’m not gonna push
myself too much to, like, get them all done at once. But, should be good. I’m excited. So I’m gonna try to get
another section of my feeding tube video done today. – [Judd] How’s the new camera workin’ out? – It’s awesome. But I wish I felt better
today, to break it in. Literally, just hours and hours have spent laying on the couch, ice pack things over my
eyes to block out the light. Like, no sound, no tv, nothing. It was just, miserable… – [Jud] Okay. Basically. – Okay, but, eventually,
the headache started to go. I pushed some I.V. Fortal. That’s my (mumbles), it’s non-steroid, anti-inflammatory drug, through my port. And that seemed to help a bit. I still have a headache, but it’s like, it’s not as… Why? It’s not as bad. Like, my nausea is way down. I’m not as light sensitive
or noise sensitive. So, doing better. And I’m not saying that cooking
is gonna fix my migraine. But cooking is a huge passion of mine, so, it’ll lift my spirits. – [Judd] Looks like Hippo’s happy. – Happy Hippo. So I’m making stir fry. It’s gonna have, like, a honey garlic kind of terriyaki-ish sauce. With chicken. First I’m doing the vegetables. I gotta get the rice going
in the rice cooker behind me. – [Judd] You know there’s carrots in that. – There are carrots in here. – [Judd] Gross. – Deal with it! Jud and his carrot aversion. My goodness. – [Jud] Like you and water (mumbles). – Anyways. Cooking, cooking’s gonna lift my spirits. (beeping) And it’s that easy. Rice is cooking. Removed the veggies. And now I added a little bit
more olive oil and soy sauce. And now the chicken is cooking. I’ve got a sauce going here. And it’s like some soy
sauce, some chicken broth. I’m gonna put in some
garlic and some honey. And mostly everything I do
is kind of just by taste and guesterment. That’s my mix of guessing and measurement. Chicken is done cooking. I just pour the sauce in. Put the veggies back. And I’m gonna let that
boil for a little bit. Rice is cooking. This is boiling. Harlow is snoopervising. How ya doing babe? – [Judd] (mumbles) – [Jaquie] Oh you startled her. Goodness. – [Judd] How you doing? How are you doing? – [Jaquie] What are you doing babe? – [Judd] Playin’ Madden. – [Jaquie] Did you… – A box lost last night. – [Jaquie] Did they?
– They did. – [Jaquie] I’m sorry. Did you see the Kate Farms stuff? – I did. – [Jaquie] Harlow really likes the hats. – Yeah, well she likes hats. She likes chewing on ’em. – [Jaquie] I told her they’re not for her. It’s for you and me. So, after it’s boiled, for me, I boil it an extra long time because the vegetables have
to be super well cooked for my stomach to tolerate them. Then we’re gonna add in
this mixture of cornstarch and water to thicken the sauce. The sauce is thickened. I’m gonna let it sit for
just a little bit longer and then dinner will be ready. And the rice is nearly done. So can doing something you love, help you feel better when you have something like a migraine, a headache, whatever it may be. Well, I cooked. I love cooking. It was lot of fun. Still, have a headache. But, I’m happy. And my spirits are lifted
and I am feeling better. So, totally worth it. And Judd and I are gonna have a good meal. So, of course it was worth it. Voila. Dinner is ready. And I have a link to a very similar recipe in the description. Are you avoiding the carrots? – [Jud] No I’m not picking them up. – [Jacquie] Oh my goodness. We’ve got our good
camera back in low light. Look at this quality. I missed this camera. Well I’m just gonna prime my
feeding tube with the pump for the night. Hook back up. We’ve got Harlow, right there, wanting attention. And we’re going to bed. Fingers crossed for no migraines tonight. Hope you all have a good night. With that we’ll say goodnight and thanks for joining
us on our adventure. (upbeat music)

  1. Hey y'all! I hope you are able to view those pesky vlogs that were cut short (uploads from 9/29 and 9/30). Let me know if you get the chance! I am also going to be working on new videos. All About My Feeding Tube, My Chronic Illness Gear, Draw My Life, Channel Q&A, Relationship Q&A… I have so many ideas! Did you have a video in mind that you'd like to see, but I did not mention? Let me know and I will work it into the list. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. My mom gave me a pillow that has worked wonders for me. I have chronic neck pain from fibromyalgia and it's a Boomerang pillow. I use it to prop myself up when I watch TV or while playing on the computer. It's also great if you're sick and need to prop yourself up because of congestion or, in my case, if you have GERD. I thought of you this morning and thought it might be good for you when you need to prop yourself up at night due to feeding tube pain or asthma flares. It's made by Beautyrest and you can buy it on Amazon or get it at Bed Bath and Beyond. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I find cooking and baking so relaxing. More so baking for me. Whenever I have flare ups of Optic Neuritis, and I can't look ar screens for months at a time, I find comfort in baking all sorts of goodies. My friends and family are then well taken care of lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. For some reason seeing you cooking makes me so happy! I don't know how to explain that feeling better, but it's amazing to see how can it lift your spirits!

  5. How awesome of Kate Farms! There's nothing better than seeing a company who cares about its products and consumers. Will you be doing another livestream at some point?

  6. Please do a draw my life ! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I would love to hear your story it takes a while to make ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’•

  7. If there's ever an investigation involving carrots, Judd can sniff them out and solve the case.
    Glad you got your camera awesomeness back and that your YT channel problems appear to be fixed!

  8. I have an ice pack face mask from BED, Bath and beyond๐Ÿ˜€ Just a suggestion for youโค
    Hugs, love and prayers to you, Judd and Harlow๐Ÿถ

  9. I would love, love, love โค๏ธ a little cookbook ๐Ÿ“– of your favorite recipes and ones you demonstrate in your vlogs. It wouldnโ€™t have to be fancy. I would pay a pretty penny for such a precious item. (I am not the best cook ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ, and recipes for two would be fantastic!) So glad your headache ๐Ÿค• is better. And my best to Judd, who suffers with those pesky carrots ๐Ÿฅ•.

  10. Iโ€™m sorry you had a migraine. What are your feelings on essential oils? Thereโ€™s a website called natureโ€™s inventory that has all kinds of natural oils for pain and tummy troubles and sleep. I use the sleep one and I like it. Itโ€™s very relaxing. Might be worth looking into for your headaches. I love seeing judd and Harlow interacting. Lots of love from Texas

  11. My doctor told me my migraines are not true migraines. For me a ice pack and caffeine helps. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  12. Good morning Jaquie,thank you so much for the informative video. I will certainly try the ice pack right now on my migraine,since I have had it for days and nothing seems to work. Glad the cooking helps you feel better. Hugs ๐Ÿ’–

  13. Hey Jacquie, I sorry to hear about your headache, I know how you feel I suffer from migraine and take meds for it sometimes it doesn't work. Ice packs do help and sleep. I also rub Vick's vapor rub on my head to help. I hope you feel better. I am making taco soup today just hurting and lazy day. We are having bad weather coming from strom Nate. Best wishes sending to you. Have a bless day.

  14. I love cooking too. I cook pretty much the same way you do. I might use a recipe once and then wing it the next time. One of my favorite shows to watch is Chopped on the Food Network. Have you seen it? They give chefs a basket with a bunch of random ingredients in it and they have to make a plate a food using all the ingredients in the basket. I get a lot of inspiration from that show. You are pretty inspirational to me too!

  15. โ€œSnoopervisingโ€ – I love it! New term in my vocabulary. Probably applies more to my hubby than my service dog. ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅ•

  16. Hey you should do "a day in the eyes" type if thing.. with hippo! Put a go pro on Harlow and see what she she's for the day! It would be interesting to see what she sees or hears when she knows when to help etc. Feel better.. love your channel as usual!

  17. Judd my husband hates carrots too and I love them. We are having just about the same dinner except I'm using beef.

  18. For the draw my life video you can have judd draw, and he'll draw your story from when you were little till now and then you do a voice over.

  19. Hi Jaquie i started watching Stranger Things after hearing you and Janiece talking about it. It is good but very wierd.

  20. I had a migraine yesterday and one trying to start today but got tylenal and bynadral in me so hasn't got to the point that light starts to bother me. The medication you use to abort a migraine was used on me when I went to the emergency room with issues after a really bad migraine. We figured out that I may get the type of migraines that cause tingling in my arms and legs depending on how bad the migraine gets. I see a neurologist soon to work out the migraine issues. I'm thinking the weather is what is triggering mine. Got Hurricane Nate coming close to where I live.

  21. I LOVE you, Judd, and Harlow. You have helped me so much.I have a lot of health issues and anytime I'm really busy or go do anything, the next day, I'm worn out and mostly end up sleeping. Before I started watching your vlog, I always felt guilty about it, but thanks to you Jaquie, I know I need to listen to my body.Yesterday I went to the Fl. Gators Homecoming Parade. We really had a blast, but the sun beating down on us was more than we could handle. So we missed the last two hours of it. Today I'm in bed, sunburnt, have slept most of the day, and THANK YOU VERY MUCH, AGAIN, JAQUIE, I don't feel guilty about it! (Sorry for the long post.)๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ

  22. I had the first migraine i've had in awhile,they got better after i went through menopause,but yes if i hadn't reached the stage of complete agony,doing something to take my mind of the migraine sometimes would help me get better.That was so nice of Kate Farms.I would love to see videos on how you train Hippo.I have totally fallen in love with her.

  23. My best friend and I are so like you and janeice. And my best friends middle name IS Jenise! Crazy! Congrats on your citizenship! And I had to pause the video when you saw Harlow watching you cook. Adorable! Do Golden's do that normally? I'm going to use your service dog content to help in my getting a service dog soon (1-2years from now…) Hope today is going well. Thinking of janeice too!

  24. What do you do when your GP flares for relief? I experience bad chronic nausea/vomiting and cramping for a few weeks or more when my symptoms flare up. Around this time last year my health started to decline badly and I started becoming malnourished, and was in the hospital four different times over two months. As of yesterday I've started feeling really sick again and I'm worried I'm going to feel like I did last year. What foods do you find easiest to keep down?

  25. Yay! For the many caring people of our world! Yay for sharing non-pharmacutical aides for migraines! I love promoting a varity of effective tools. Thanks โ™กive

  26. I'm so thankful for Kate Farms. I will promote them if I get a chance. I don't know anyone with a feeding tube at the moment but I will say good things about them on message boards, etc. These days it seems like companies can be greedy and not focusing on what people need as most important . From what I've seen, Kate Farms is one of the amazing companies that cares about people. I think I will mentioned it to my doctor… "Hey, have you heard about Kate Farms?" Plant the seed, spike curiosity and let the goodness of Kate Farms take it from there.

  27. When I have a migraine I can't do anything allot times my arms stop working or I can't feel am so I'm happy for you that you still can kinda function despite having a migraine

  28. When you do your Chronic Illness Gear would you please let us know where you purchased your pink mask? I'm really happy you have been feeling better and hope you health continues to improve! Thanks.

  29. Super weird question, don't worry if you're not comfortable answering but do your illnesses affect your sex life?

  30. Could you be a little dehydrated? Your lips are very chapped. The previous formula you had to use more of – that made more liquid. Sorry if this is unsolicited advice – just throwing it against the wall – I get headaches when I am dehydrated. Glad you are getting better on sooo much! Hugs, Kara

  31. Iโ€™m starting Kate Farms formula on Monday! I was having similar issues as you were with me previous formula so I decided to make the change. Thank you for the advice ๐Ÿ‘

  32. Snoopervising, how cute! My dog Beau does the same! I'm sorry you had a migraine, I hate them. I'm glad you are happy and Kate Farms food is helping you feel better for sure โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ

  33. Thank you for being you! Our whole fam loves you guys. You look like an amazing cook. Im going to make this tomorrow i think ๐Ÿ™‚ anyways I have a video suggestion? I would love to hear your experience on your road to your adult autisum diagnosis?

  34. If u think about it, they are being helpful and kind. But they are doing free advertising in ur vlogs lol…because u show there stuff.

  35. Jaquie, I noticed your (what looks like) non-stick-coated rice cooker is scratched. i apologize for the personal comment but please consider getting a new one. anti-stick coating can be quite toxic when scratched. especially since your body is already quite sensitive i think it's worth getting that taken care of even if it seems like something minor.

  36. You should do a draw my life!!! But drawing can take up a lot of energy and patience so if you can do it thatโ€™s completely fine!!! You are so strong!!!!

  37. Go Jaquie go, cook – cook- and cook. So just wondering does you new Kate Farms inspire and new ingredients/recipes for your cooking and meals? I love your phrase < Harlow is snoopervising.> FYI organic corn starch is easier on the stomach and there may be better starchesyou maybe able to substitute. Food looks yummy

  38. Am i the only one who got a 6 min ad for dairy cows… I usually watch all Jaquie's ads to support her channel but that was too much.. I know she cant control the ads but i was curious if anyone else saw it?

  39. Hey Jaquie, or anyone else who lives with migraines. I have migraines from a TBI from a really bad rock climbing accident. Because I need jaw reconstruction and other oral/mouth/teeth/jaw related surgeries and orthodontics and Add to dictionary, I need to be weaned off my migraine medicines because they're anti-inflammatory, as well as make bone movement and bone healing a LOT slower. I too have "The Cave" for migraines, but my meds are the most helpful. Are there any things you do that really help your migraines that aren't medicine? Sometimes a cold shower or super soft gentle music helps me, I was just wondering if there's anything that you've tried or do that helps your migraines? I'm sometimes too scared to try new things that might help my medical conditions.

  40. Hey Jacquie do still use social sunglasses for migraines? I just got axon optics ones and they have the red tint but I was curious if theraplex ones are better/darker and if you still used any.

  41. Aww,, Migraines are awful, I just got over my three day one, I'm so glad you're able to remain positive! The food you make always looks SOOO good!

  42. Hi Jaquie, it is so awesome that you not only advocate for your chronic illnesses, but also for your autism! Me and my little brother, Andrew have autism and we use weighted blankets when we need a break to release and unwind, I was wondering if you have heard of weighted blankets and or use them. Maybe this will some how help if you are having a not so great day, if you are feeling really tense! Thank you again for being an advocate for something that impacts my life and my family everyday! Have an amazing day!

  43. Have you tried prescription medication? I'm not a doctor and I'm not suggesting everyone do what I do or anything, but Maxalt made a huge difference for me.

  44. Hope your headache disappears soon. A pup that is a very close friend of Hippos has been receiving special treats from viewers. Is there somewhere Hippo can receive some treats too? My SD Clarence is a big fan of your vlog too.

  45. I'm sure you get tips all the time and get annoyed by them but I thought I would throw my 2 cents in. Now, I'm not exactly sure if this will help you since I dont exactly know where your migraines actually hurt the most but I have noticed you always have the ice pack on the side of your head for your migraines but for my headaches I have actually laid back on a heating pad and then had a cool washcloth laid over my face from my forehead down to my nose, completly covering my eyes, and that seems to help. Hope this helps!

  46. You're my favourite youtuber right now, im just home from work and its 6 am and i came and watching this before bed haha thank you for making videos

  47. If you ever want to get more, REALLY, comfy leggings. You can ask me where to find them(because right now it is night and I am in bed, and I don't remember the name) But if you ask later I can get the info.)

  48. I love watching you cook! It's my favourite part of your vlogs. When you can, I'd love to see some cooking videos! ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. Hey I don't know if you can get them in the states but for my migranes I have a thing called a "Migra cap" it's basically a really big ice pack that you put over your whole head that freezes away the pain and also blocks out all the light so hopefully you can sleep it off with it on its an absolute God send!!! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  50. Haha Oh Judd.

    My son (12), picks out the broccoli and has all the carrot.

    Have you tried yellow & purple carrots. Purple need to cook on their own as the colour goes through everything and can stain.

  51. The chronic illness gear video sounds really good! Im always on the look out for things to make my life easier as a chronic illness sufferer

  52. I have suffered with migraines for 40 years. 38 of those my migraines were chronic (15-20 migraines per month); for the last 2 years they have been intractable – meaning I have a migraine 24/7, the pain varies in intensity. I too have a โ€œcaveโ€, and with my migraines + chronic pain from some of my other 14 chronic illnesses, the majority of my days are โ€œcaveโ€ days. Itโ€™s miserable. I am so happy you are doing better & kudos to Kateโ€™s Farm for helping you & the PR package!!

  53. AGREE Jud…carrot spoils everything…and i mean EVERYTHING…ewwwww, doesn't help when ur actually allergic to the stuff

  54. I get migraines headaches all the times, since I was a child; I take migraine meds. It helps sometimes, feel better โค๏ธ

  55. Pro tip, cook the veg then remove, cook chicken and remove. Place the sauce and corn starch until thick them add the chicken and veg. Try washing your rice before cooking, otherwise your eating dirty rice.

  56. I'm glad you're able to find something to distract you during my migraines!! Unfortunately, I have chronic migraines (usually 20 ish migraine days a month) and I am completely debilitated when I have them (can't tolerate moving, lights, smells, etc.). I hope to get them under control and get back on track! Have you had any luck finding a prescription preventative med Jaquie?

  57. I think the eye cover that Wal-Mart has is awesome for migraines, and I have chronic migraines!!! This is an eye pad that is thicker because it has beads or something in it and you put it in the freezer. It is a blackout too and I have an extra because I want to be able to switch it out if need be.

  58. Wow I didnโ€™t realize how much better quality this camera was until it was gone for a while! Much better!

  59. The only thing that worked for my migraines was a heating pad. They say it's not good for your brain, but I didn't care and put it on my pillow and slept with it and in the morning my migraine was gone. I don't know what happened, but the migraines went away about 15 years ago. Thank goodness !! โ˜บ๏ธ

  60. I get chronic migraines quite often sometimes they can get so bad it hurt move your head or sit up or even to just think to hard.

  61. hold it! 5:01 if you need some to do it I will gladly i cant record so i will send the pic but it will be hard and i will like to talk to you on subject on it. pleases
