These are *not* badges of honor....

This one hit me like a ton of bricks. So many things on this list are things I think I should or need to do ....but I'm wrong. These are things I need to work on and heal.

As always, Id6 love to know your thoughts!

Headache

Day is done, almost gone the sun
YOUR light is welcome in the night
THE moon refects the sun
With that some of us are done
CHILDREN of the night
Wait til dawn's twilight
When the sun returns again
To dry the ground
And crops abound

I’m broken. #Anxiety #MajorDepressiveDisorder

Thinking and holding everything together, staying strong and not allowing myself to spiral. I’m broken today. I can’t do anything. The fatigue is debilitating even for mundane stuff. My stomach growling but my brain’s not hungry and my mouth refused to cooperate too.

But I sought help today. Was given medication but they scared me. Am I crazy? Do I need these? The pill gave me such a dull throbbing headache smacked at the center of my brain. I feel nauseous and disoriented.

I’m scared of these tiny pills. They seems
like a scalpel digging and probing my brain and it hurts.

Truth! My whole life is proof that if you give it your best effort, you can get a handle on life and all the obstacles that it throws at you. Enjoy the good times to get you through those hard times.

As one of my life altering quotes that I came across before my waist-down leg reconstruction surgeries said: The best way out, is always through. -Robert frost

10 things to say to respond to "Migraine is Just a Headache" from our friends at the American Migraine Foundation

I found this brilliant article from the American Migraine Foundation and it's the 10 things to say when you are told as one who has Migraine, that it's "all just a headache".

It was worth the read as many of my responses to that phrase cannot be repeated in polite company...so I may have to start using some of these instead...
