What symptom is annoying you the most today?

I know, I know — it can be difficult to choose just one, especially if you live with multiple health conditions. I’m having a hard time deciding between depression and migraine head pain myself! Both symptoms really seem to have it out for me today.

While the chronic nature of chronic physical and mental illnesses means we are affected by our conditions and their symptoms on a regular basis, there are some days when a single symptom stands out from the rest.

What symptom is getting on your nerves more than usual today? How is it affecting your ability to go about your day and night?

Migraine flare?

To anyone with chronic migraines besides myself: do you get flares so bad you can’t walk due to the pain, your entire body hurts, or just me? #chronicmigraine #flare

Need advice #chronicmigraine

I need advice/experience! My neuro wants to start me on Ajovy to help with migraine, Propanolol hasn’t done the trick the last 7 weeks.
I also have Fibromyagia, TMJ, depression and anxiety.
I hate the thought of an injection, but the migraines are really taking a tole

New Episode Alert! Am I Actually Neurodivergent? 🤔

There’s a joke somewhere about four neurodivergent people walking into a recording booth and attempting to focus on the topic at hand. In this episode, Ashley (hi 👋) is joined by @camararollin, @jwertman, and @skyeg as they dive into the wide spectrum of neurodiversity, imposter syndrome in relation to identifying as neurodivergent, and how neurodivergence can often be misunderstood by the people who are meant to be the most helpful in supporting those individuals — namely doctors and educators. Additionally, find out how stacking diagnoses can feel like Pokémon evolutions (and of course, stick around to hear our favorite ones!).

I feel like curling into a ball and crying #Fibromyalgia #TemporomandibularJointDisorders #chronicmigraine

It hurts and I’m so tired. I have to dog sit but the dogs are killing me. It is making me so miserable. I want to leave but the dogs want to be near me at all times.

I have nothing for relief. The dogs want to be all over me. I can’t take it. I don’t get irritated like this when I work. This is the first time I have felt like this.

I feel like crying and just laying down and locking myself away from them. I want to just not be in pain. I want to not be here. I hate how I can’t have anything without pain anymore. I just hate everything right now.
