Migraine Awareness Month #17: "Father Knows Best."

Some understand Migraines, some don’t. It’s Father’s Day. Write a letter to your father or the man closest to you, and talk to him about your Migraines.


Hey Dad,

How goes it?

I don’t need to explain pain to you.

We both get what chronic pain means.  By the way thanks for sharing that part of the gene pool!  But they say your children have a one and four chance of get fibromyalgia so… if we take that literally then my brothers are safe. Ha.From FM anyway. Not migraines. Our genepool isn’t so hot for that, is it?


I know that you understand the pain because you have the pain. I know you understand the IMPACT of the pain because you have endured the impact of the pain. I know you understand the emotional toll of the pain because it has impacted you as well. I know you understand the toll of this chronic pain life better than anyone I know. It isn’t the sort of knowledge I wish you had to share with me. Or that you had to endure it as well. Or that migraines are impacting you likewise now, as they are me.

Anyway, that’s the deal with migraines.  Pain and a lot of other crap.  Just like FM.  But we’re doing good.  We are alive.  We are surviving.  And that there is a good thing.

See ya later.
