MHAM Challenge: Day 3

What small thing gives you hope for living with Headaches and Migraines?

The small things are what keep me going. I developed headaches at a very young age and I was angry for a long time about it, bitter. I think I still am sometimes. I thought about suicide a lot in high school – fortunately these were only ever thoughts in my darkest moments. I wised up quickly when I decided to live not with just headaches and migraines but despite migraines and headaches. I would not let them defeat me.

The rare pain free moment kept me going for a long time – I would live solely for those moments and in those moments as few and far in between they were. I would hope that those moments would be more frequent.

I still believe that one day I will be pain free more often than not. Not such a small thing but it gives me hope. I hope that in my life time medicine will advance enough to insure I remain pain free.

Other people give me hope, everyone else living in situations similar to mine and how they preserve despite their odds reassures me that I can do it. If you can do it, I can do it.

A note: I am kind of late to this – honestly I forgot about the blog challenge. I will post day 1 and 2 in the next few days and continue with day 4 tomorrow.
