Why do we seem so withdrawn?

This is a video you can share with close family and friends to explain why we may appear withdrawn or not ourselves when we are dealing with migraine. It was inspired by Amanda Workman's interview with her sister.


It's important to remember there are so many factors that can cause us to retreat from the world. As I mentioned in the video our symptoms, triggers, treatments, emotions, and the fact that we worry that you don't understand all come into play. We know it can be frustrating for you, so thank you for taking the time to listen to this video. Thanks especially to those of you who are our caregivers.
