Migraine Awareness Month #29: More Often Than Not

This month is Chronic Migraine Awareness Month. People with chronic Migraine have Migraine more often than not. Think of and share a random act of kindness that you could do for someone with chronic Migraine.

I love performing random acts of kindness. Sometimes that means stopping for the lady I passed on the road trying to change a tire, or secretly paying for someone’s meal at a fast food place on Christmas Eve.

I’ve had my tire changed a few times by well-meaning people, but aside from that, I’ve never been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of things. I’ve thought about it a lot though, so thought I’d share a few on my “to do” list…

A few of my favorite random acts of kindness:

  1. Volunteer to come and clean house for a Migraineur
  2. Come pick up the kids and take them to the park for a few hours
  3. Go to the doctor with a Migraineur and offer to take notes for them
  4. Fix a few frozen dinners for the family that can be easily reheated when the Migraineur is sick and unable to cook or serve dinner for the family
  5. Give a Migraine Tool Bag to a Migraineur
  6. Pack and give a Kid’s Migraine Survival Bag to a Migraineur with small children
  7. Offer to come babysit during a Migraine.
  8. Remind a Migraineur how much you love them and care about them despite their struggle with Migraine disease.
  9. Forgive a Migraineur when they cancel a date with you. Make sure they know you are serious.
  10. Help a Migrainey friend be impulsive — offer to drop everything and do something fun on their next good day… whenever that might be.

What random acts of kindness would you love to give or receive? Do you have a story of a random act of kindness you want to share?
