    Maid service would probably be very close to tops on my list!

    If an individual would like to give a gift to someone who suffers with migraines, I can think of a few things that would be great in a gift basket. #1 an ice pack/ice bag #2 eye mask to block out the light #3 iced eye mask #4 gift certificate for a massage. Offer to help easy their load; maid service for a day, dinners pre-made to pull out of the freezer and cook or take the kids so the individual can rest. This things may be simple, but that is all we need.

    I’m with Teri and Cindi – the first word that came to me is Understanding.

    Hi Betsy! Understanding was my first choice as well, however, I realize that not everyone is going to be able to understand Migraine or life with this disease. However, everyone can show compassion despite their inability to truly understand our lives, so I chose that word. It really was a toss-up for me, because in a perfect world, everyone would understand. In the real world, I feel it’s just not possible 🙁

    That was my first response, Teri… simple understanding would go a long way for so many reasons, wouldn’t it?
