What’s your biggest Migraine related fear. How do you cope with it?
I think that when it comes to migraines, my biggest fear is that I’m going to miss out on something because of a migraine.
And I mean this in a very general sense. Miss hanging out with my friends (having to cancel plans because of a migraine), miss having a great time at camp (because of a migraine), miss out on being able to be the best that I can at my job (because a migraine kept me in bed for an extra 30 minutes until I could muster the strength to move), and - most of all - miss out on taking chances.
I’m one of those people that’s always lived my life by a plan. Yes, I deviated from it every once in awhile, but when I didn’t get into Grad School for the coming Fall semester, I saw it as an opportunity for me to take chances without the added stress of school. Yes, I’ll still be working, but I’ll have more time to go out and audition and run and take care of myself in the way that I want to.
If I want to drive to Pittsburgh to visit friends for a weekend, I’ll be able to do that. Migraines have stood in my way of going out on a limb, and I refuse to let them do that anymore. I guess you could say I’m pushing that fear to the side.
I don’t want to miss out on what my lifecould bebecause I’m too preoccupied with a migraine that Icould have.
