Migraine Awareness Month #1 #MHAM #MHAM13 #MHAMBC

All my friends and extended family know that I have chronic migraines. Which is not to say that they understand what that means and how debilitating it is. If they were to peek under the mask I wear they would see all the ugly details.

- I'm in a lot more pain than I usually let people see.
- My brain doesn't work like it used to. All the knowledge is still there but I can't always access it.
- I often feel embarrassed, ashamed and even guilty about my situation and the burden it puts on hubby.
- I am often offended and angered by the insensitive things people say.
- Pulling myself together to meet up with anyone is a big deal for me. It is taxing emotionally and physically.

June 2013, Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, is dedicated to Unmasking the Mystery of Chronic Headache Disorders. The 2013 Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blog Challenge is a project


  1. Thank you for sharing a piece of your story. Coming out from behind the mask does help us all get a better understanding of migraines and how much the truly affect the individuals life and their family's too!

    I wish for you a pain-free Sunday


  2. Too much medicine is not good. For me, chiropractor cork
    is the best for treating for migraines..
