A New Take on the Headache Calendar
Headache calendars serve many purposes. They help to keep a record of potential triggers, medications, and migraines and can help us communicate with our doctors. However, for those of us with chronic migraine, a headache journal can become a heartbreaking reminder of daily pain.
Flipping the script
In this video, I share the idea of keeping a wellness calendar to try to figure out why I had a well day/moment and to record what I was able to get accomplished.
The visual reminder that a well moment/day occurred provides a positive and helpful reminder that these days are in reach. It can be uplifting to keep a record of all that was accomplished on the fleeting well moments/days as they can be so easy to forget during a wash of days in pain.
Does this idea work for you? Do you use a headache calendar? Is it helpful?
Can you tell when a migraine attack is coming?
