Comfort or Something Close #NMAM #NMAMBC

Comfort is hard to come by these days, especially when having a migraine. But it is in these times of pain when seeking comfort is never more important. Even though true comfort may not be achieved, doing whatever I can to mitigate it certainly does make a difference.

The comfort measure I turn to time and time again is retreating to a migraine friendly space. This includes:
- room darkening curtain
- my basket of meds
- pillows and blankets on comfy furniture
- Netflix at low volume and dimmed on TV
- room temperature water
- looking at my cute pet bunny doing his bunny activities

This migraine friendly space I've created is all about blocking out the things that make the pain worse, creating all kinds of soft support for my body so it can relax as much as possible and, of course, distracting myself with light-hearted shows. This combination has worked quite well over the years. Honestly I can't imagine doing anything else during my rough days.

  1. Comfort measures we can administer to ourselves are the kind we can most count on during times of stress and distress. Thank you for sharing yours.
