Let's talk migraine awareness

So I am having a horrible day. Vomiting from the vertigo and extremely nauseated. And then I have this work ‘situation’ to deal with it on top of all this. A ticking time bomb situation about my leave. And I have a migraine because I got stressed. Right this moment I have tamed the nausea enough to at least write this post. Because it is the first day of migraine awareness month. And it is important to me, even as I am having such a bad day.

Migraine awareness

First I would like to share the lyrics of Twenty one Pilot song called migraine:

I-I-I I’ve got a migraine
And my pain will range from up, down, and sideways
Thank God it’s Friday cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays
Cause Sundays are my suicide days
I don’t know why they always seem so dismal
Thunderstorms, clouds, snow, and a slight drizzle
Whether it’s the weather or the letters by my bed
Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head
Let it be said what the headache represents
It’s me defending in suspense
It’s me suspended in a defenseless test
Being tested by a ruthless examinant
That’s represented best by my depressing thoughts
I do not have writer’s block my writer just hates the clock
It will not let me sleep I guess I’ll sleep when I’m dead
And sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head

This is the only song I know where it shares what it is like. And sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head.

Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat?
Shadows will scream that I’m alone
But I know, we’ve made it this far… kid

He isn’t the only one. So many of us suffer chronic migraines. 4% of people with migraine get chronic migraine.

Migraine awareness

Migraine is a disease, not a decision.

Migraine awareness

We can feel so alone. So lost. So isolated. But you and I are not alone in this battle.

You are not alone. And I am not alone. And together we are stronger.

  1. A brilliant post to raise awareness & apt timing given how you were suffering (and yet still worked hard on this post, regardless!) I’m so sorry you had such an awful day and that work stress is contributing to it all. I do hope the weekend is a little brighter for you & I hope you can at least get some space from the work side of things. Sending hugs your way..xx
