My story.. a human hermit crab
Last updated: May 2023
I am a human hermit crab. Most of my days consist of being in dark rooms, quiet sounds. Some day i know this will change but for now it is just how it is.
I am 35 yrs old, have a 6 yr old and a 2 yr old. I can never say "yes" to anything planned, can never schedule a playdate, and if someone sets up a playdate I most likely will not make it. I know it sounds like I look at the glass half empty, but I am just telling the truth. I have Chronic Migraines. If I have a good day I can not predict when it will be or how long it will last. My kiddos are pretty much shut inside the house when home with me...about 80% of the time, because some of my headache triggers are sensitivity to light, sound, rain, hormones, bass sounds, high pitched sounds, pressure systems, dental work, and it goes on as a list that seems endless. I get migraine/tension like headaches about 28 days a month or more at this point.
Are the family and friends you will be seeing this holiday season understanding about migraine?
