Through the holidays I am always hoping my chronic migraine will not ramp up to a 10 or more on the pain scale. My family definitely understands my chronic migraines since I've had them for almost 40 years. It just hurts me (my emotional side) to miss any family gatherings. The feeling of missing out on things is ever present...... I just thought I'd share with you my feelings. We don't need added stress when we are already stressed with the chronic ever present pain. I try to be positive and get plenty of rest during the holiday season. It doesn't curtail the pain but it does make me feel a bit better overall.
Happy Holidays! Thank you for this website.
