Tempering Anxiety: Feeling Mentally Prepared for the Next Migraine Attack

"I can't go anywhere without getting an attack!" I cried, on an autumn day out with my husband. A migraine had just started. It was a struggle getting home with the subway lights, sounds, and smells. Because of this, I felt I'd be stuck at home forever.

How do I calm my anxiety over the next migraine attack?

Since migraine attacks can be unpredictable, it can be easy to feel a lot of anxiety from not knowing when the next attack will come. In this video, I share some things that have helped me temper this anxiety. I hope this is helpful to you, wherever you are in your journey. I'd love to hear about your experiences as well!
