Steel Magnolias: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”: In what ways are you stronger as a result of living with Migraine or another Headache Disorder?
Well, I’ve found since I entered High school, I’ve literally become the poster child for being a steel magnolia.. I’ve dealt with some horrible acts of discrimination( See My Dance with Discrimination)
I believe that the events that have happened due to my chronic illness have made me more of a “no BS attitude” … If you have a distorted opinion of my disorder, or by those means any other chronic invisible illness. Fine. Keep it to yourself, because we can’t change our situation, but you can.
I have become a Health Advocate for myself and many of my friends who suffer from other conditions.I believe anyone who is sick deserves the same care, whether it be mental illness all the way to Cancer.
I believe in some ways I am stronger due to my condition, but in other senses weaker.. But thats another story for another day.
