Migraine Awareness Month #2: Tea for Two

I'm taking part in a 1-month blogging challenge from Health Central's migraine group. Today's blog - if I could ask anyone, who would I invite for tea at my home if I could explain migraine disease to them so they'd understand it, and why. 

I always have a hard time with this kind of question. So, I'm going to pick the first person to pop up in my mental mirror. Someone who I think a full understand of migraine disease would have made a huge difference in our working relationship - my manager from my last job. 

I'd ask her to tea, so we could sit down, and by magic, she would learn about migraine disease, about the disease I was living through each day, about the great toll it takes on me - not only the suffering when I have a migraine, but the precursors and aftermath, the toll of seeking treatment, the emotional and physical toll of medications, the narrowing of the world when I was in the season of extreme chronic migraine I was in during the last year and a half I worked there. 

I think our relationship would have been revolutionized, and even if it still turned out to be best for me to leave that company, the experience would have been changed so much, so much less traumatic.


National Migraine Awareness Month is initiated by the National Headache Foundation. The Blogger's Challenge is initiated by www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.

An Easter Hat and Me

Step into my inner world.

Sometimes, I hesitate to share thoughts that flit and emotions that surge and wane. Yet I so value when my friends share these insights with me. I get to know them in a special way.

So I invite you to get to know me - or continue knowing me - through this space of exploration.

I promise to reveal some of the joys, fears, observations, profundity, and ironies of life that come to mind day by day.

Don't forget to share with me your own inner sphere!
