So today is not a good day. We had a storm last night that is still pretty intense and my migraine was awful. I was alone with my kids this morning to take them to pre school, and there was a big accident ahead of us (no one hurt) on our way there that we had to wait by. All the noice, lights and discussions with officers etc was terrible for my migraine. (I know Im am NOT the one to feel sorry for in this situation.)
I always feel like my brain is so sensitive during migraine, its like its exposed and doesnt have a filter. Everything I hear and see is overwhelming and this in combination with the other symptoms always triggers me even more and gives me anxiety and especially social anxiety because I cant stand being in a store feeling like this, or doing small talk and I just want to lie down in a dark room.
My dr says its ”totally normal” but I would love to hear from you if you experience the same and if you have any advice on how to cope with it. It gives me too much down time not being able to run errands and to do normal stuff.
