Name by any other name #MHAM #MHAMSMC

How does naming your attacks help you cope, or does it help?

I don’t really name my migraines. I call them ‘brutal’, ‘intense’ or ‘killer’. Or curse words. Or just use the pain scale. It was a 8er or 9er. That sort of deal.

To be honest, when I am in a lot of pain I tend to write and that helps me cope with the pain. Like bad poetry or something like that. Gets the angst out of me. I quite literally cannot express to pain in one name. Can’t do it. But sometimes I try in a poem. Not really a poet though, but poetry is a form one can express Intensity. So that is where I will sometimes try and get that sort of intensity out of my system.
