Day 4:Finding Nemo #MHAM #MHAM13

Finding Nemo: “Just keep swimming”: How do you keep going in life when Migraine or
another Headache Disorder deals you a difficult set back?

I find that the odd time I can get pretty down about my situation, and its taken me a couple years to figure out how to bring myself out of them. I find that talking to some of my fellow spoonies always helps me, but never truly gets me out of what I call the “pit of despair” . I’ve always wondered whether or not to fight it or just let it run its course as I usually try to fight it off, but lately I’ve been leaning more towards letting it take over and run its course. It’s the spoonie version of the fight or flight!

I guess all in all I find myself still pondering whether or not to fight or flight, but I know that I always have the support from my fellow spoonies to bring me through the tough times.

Do you fight or flight?

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

You Really Don’t Know

I’ve had a lot of people “sympathize” with me, they are always saying  “oh I have migraines, I know EXACTLY what you’re going through!” or ” I get headaches all the time! “, and I feel bitter every single time I hear these things because  l always think in my head, you honestly have no idea what I go through even though they are trying to get on a level with me.

The thing with my pain disorder is, I NEVER get a break with my pain..its not a headache that you have for a hour or two, take a couple of advil then go on your merry way.. I have my daily pain, and when I have a feeling  that it may increase I have NO MEDICATION TO TURN TO, to make it stop. I have to put my entire life on hold and wait for it to hopefully pass. Now, I am not saying that people should stop trying to be  empathetic to those in chronic pain, but please people.Do  not compare our excruciating pain to your daily aches.
