I have recently been diagnosed with chronic migraines and spent the last two months hiding inside my dark/quiet bedroom on unpaid sick leave. I am sure this is something many people on this forum can relate to.
Prior to becoming unwell my parter and I booked a month long trip to Japan. In a decision based on equal parts stubbornness, rose coloured glasses, travel insurance not covering cancellation costs and determination to see cherry blossoms, we have decided to travel to the loudest/brightest/busiest county in the world – migraine and all.
My headache specialist suggested that I write a travel blog to inspire other people with migraines travel. I am not a writer or a photographer, but I have decided to give it a go. If you are interested in following our journey I have included the link below. This is not a sponsored or paid blog. I have no idea how this trip will go. I only hope that by sharing my story we can laugh or cry about it together.
Let me know what you think.
