Migraine Awareness Month #12: "Let's Do the...
Choose a movie monster that reminds you of your Migraines and tell us why. So I gave this one a lot of thought. Like, A LOT a lot. I thought while making cake pops. I thought while at work. I thought while taking a shower. I thought while watching Dance Moms (thank God my migraines aren’t like Abby Lee Miller. I think that would be even worse). Eventually, I turned to my mom on this...
a dramatic re-enactment of my thoughts while...
me: that's not quite hot enough let me just turn it up to boiling lava.
me: yes good i shall bathe in the waters of mordor.
me: why do we have like 25 different kinds of shampoo?
me: i'ma read the back of this.
me: lather, rinse, repeat?
me: why do i have to repeat is your product so shitty it didn't work the first time?
me: hold the fuck up i have to write fanfic in my head real quick.
me: if water is a renewable resource does that mean every celebrity i've ever loved has showered in this same water before?
me: but you didn't have to cUT ME OFF.
me: did i already wash my hair?
me: i think i did but i don't remember.
me: i'ma do it again.
me: FUCK I REPEATED.
me: well played, pantene pro-v.
me: i wonder what it's like to have sex in the shower.
me: i bet it's awkward.
me: i bet a lot of injuries happen that way.
me: okay time to get out.
me: where the fuck is my towel.

Migraine Awareness Month #11: "Say What?!"
What’s the most ridiculous thing ever said to you about Migraines, who said it, and under what circumstances? I think the most ridiculous thing was the conversation I had with the second advisor in the office of disability at Kean. My first semester I was told I was eligible for accommodations. My accommodations were merely being able to be absent more than twice without my grade being...
Migraine Awareness Month #6: Name That Tune!
Choose a theme song for Migraine disease or your headache disorder. See if you can find a YouTube video of it for your blog post. I’ve honestly been thinking about this question all day. And never came up with an answer that I find to be fully suitable. However, I’ll have to go with Maxwell’s Silver Hammer by the Beatles. Reasons? 1) It literally feels like there’s...
Migraine Awareness Month #10: Name the...
Choose any celebrity to represent migraine (whether they have migraine or not) who would it be and why? Kristin Chenoweth. No doubt in my mind. She does suffer from migraines and has spoken about performing with them. She’s an inspiration to me because I feel like if she can get up there and sing and dance her ass off while she has a migraine, I can too. She has never been quiet about...
Migraine Awareness Month #9: Day Dream Believer
Describe your dream day - without a migraine to hold you back. I guess the day would start off with feeling fully rested for once. (This is something difficult for me since most of the times I take painkillers at some point the day/night before and those mess with my sleep cycle.) I’d have breakfast in the morning and then go out on my bike or for a jog/walk at the park. In the morning,...
Migraine Awareness Month #8: Let there be light!
Most Migraineurs have issues with light sensitivity. What do you do to cope with it? I never go ANYWHERE without a pair of sunglasses. Completely honest. Even when it’s overcast and it looks like there won’t be any sun. I have multiple pairs and always make sure I have a pair on the kitchen counter near the door just in case I forget to move my usual pair from one bag to another. I...
Migraine Awareness Month #7: List Topper.
There are lots of myths and misconceptions about Migraine. Which one tops your list as the biggest and most common? What can we do to get the truth out there? I think the myth that bothers me the most about migraines is that since I suffer from migraines, I must be depressed or have some other kind of psychological condition. FALSE. I guess it might come about because many people who suffer...
