Teaching with chronic migraine

What are some of the best things you have found to help with teaching during a migraine attacks? I have to keep working because I don't have any other income. I have to push through because I only get 6 sick days and 1 personal day. Any help and suggestions are appreciated.

  1. @Kguthrie87 I've always tried to be open and honest about what I am experiencing during an attack. I try my best to explain what I am going through even though it is tough during an attack. I also try to express what I need to help me through the attack. It can be a lot to put on your coworkers but it may help them to understand what you are dealing with. I'm sorry to hear that you have to push through attacks and work. Are you able to take any abortive medications at work? Warmly, Cheryl migraine team member
