100% I realize people mean no harm at all… it is in fact, very thoughtful to bring up migraine in conversation.
“I wish I could stay at home every day like you” I’m trapped here and every single day I grieve the life I used to have.
“Yesterday I had a headache too” I am SO sorry as I don’t think ANYone should ever have to endure head pain, but migraines and headache aren’t the same thing. When you compare them, it actually feels like you’re dismissing the neurologic disorder.
“You look fine to me, it can’t be that bad” I don’t want to look sick… if I walked around looking how I feel, I would look like a decaying zombie dragging myself on the ground.
“Migraine? How’d you get that again?” This one I like… because it’s a genuine question and it shows interest. Answer: I got migraine from doing an inverted yoga pose for 2 weeks.😂 TRUE simple answer: genetics.
