My Migraine Support Cast
June is Migraine Awareness Month and, as someone who suffers from chronic migraines, a spokesperson for No Time 4 Migraines, and a mom of three, there are strategies I use that help me combat my migraine monsters. However, I wouldn’t be able to do that without the people who surround and support me. A great supporting cast is necessary when facing any struggle and, luckily for me, I am surrounded by people who understand how much my migraine attacks impact my life. In fact, most of the people in my inner circle can relate to this issue as well. For example, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve called my mother asking for suggestions and advice on how she used to handle her migraine attacks. If you are someone who suffers from migraine, my best advice is to seek out a group of people who will catch you when you fall, dim the lights when you ask, and truly understand if you ever need to cancel an outing due to migraine. It is so amazing to have friends and family who don’t judge me when I tell them I’m calling it a night because the thunderstorm-triggered migraine won. Acceptance is everything.
