What's Your Secret: Distraction

In this What's Your Secret video, we discuss ways to distract ourselves when dealing with pain. Living with chronic migraine can often mean living with some amount of pain on a fairly constant basis. The most severe migraine pain, of course, means a dark room and being still - but if we are at a moderate pain level, how do we distract ourselves so that pain is not the focus of our lives?

How do you distract yourself?

The answer to this question is unique to each of us as for some people, an activity that works just fine can trigger further pain for someone else. Still, it can help to share ideas and learn from one another as we all navigate this world of migraine together.

In the comment section below, please share your strategies and techniques for distracting yourself from pain and thanks for participating!
