Last updated: May 2019

When we think of migraine we often think of the negative aspects: missed work or school days, cancelled plans, doctor bills, lonely days in bed, days in pain trying to push through, etc. In this video, I wanted to explore, though, what migraine has taught me and how I think it makes me a better parent.

I'd love to hear, if you're a mom or dad, how migraine may have prepared you for the challenges that lay ahead!

This is the article I mentioned in the video. If you're a new parent, it's a must-read!
