Staying mentally on top of our game when we have Migraine can be really tough. It’s even more difficult if depression or other mental illness is comorbid with the Migraine beast, especially if that Migraine problem has become chronic.
As parents, it is tough enough to make it through 18 years with our child and not also be hit with the guilt monster even if we are healthy and not also going through mental challenges. Adding Migraine to the mix makes going through periods of guilt and depression over the affect our Migraine has had on our families, inevitable.
Yes it’s true — you are not alone.
The thing about this situation is that there are so many helpful things we can do to make parenting our kids through our (or their) Migraine disease more manageable. Throughout the years with my own kids now 22 and 26, we came up with some helpful tips I’d love to share. These are by no means all the tips *out there*. I’ll bet you have some tips you could share with us, and I truly hope you will in the comments section of this article.
