What I've Learned From Having Chronic Migraine - for Better or for Worse

A light hearted - but true - reflection of migraine


1. Migraineurs will do anything, anything, to get control of their brains back, even if it sounds stupid and unlikely to help. We're desperate for help. We're oftentimes suckers, too.

2. Having pets doesn't cure your migraine disease, but it helps to have a furry friend to cuddle and shed tears on from time to time. Also, research shows that having pets helps to lower blood pressure - yours, and theirs, by petting. http://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/health_benefits.htm

3. The only people who are going to understand you completely are those also living with chronic illness. Caretakers included.

4. You'll discover who your true friends are, when they try to understand and educate themselves on your disorder as well, and offer an ear instead of medical advice that they are not qualified to give, nor have done the research on as well as you probably have.

5. Some days it's going to be all about your disease's control over you, not the other way around.
