For My "M"* Tribe

  • By Fahad Alqahtani

    Last week, I joined my 5 years old daughter in a roll coaster kind of game. It kept rotating in a speed that made my daughter in a continuous state of joy. However, for me it was the other way around. My entire body started to sweat including my forehead even it was a cool weather that day. By the time game has stopped, I have considered death as a possible out come . When my wife saw me getting out, she commented on my yellow face look while I was showing her my shrinking hands. Next day of that event was my date with a new attack of migraine. I still struggle with it as I write these words with a sunglasses in a closed room. Although I experience migraine attacks two to three times a year, but I can say with confidence that they are one of the most difficult experiences a human can go through.

    Those kinds of games can definitely be a migraine trigger. Sorry you had to find out the hard way. I stopped riding roller coasters, going to arcades, or even watching 3D movies or some TV shows because the images move too fast. Maybe next time somebody else can take your daughter to play the game.
