I told a good friend of mine that I was starting a blog about migraines. He replied that he thought I was becoming obsessed with migraines. That I was letting them control my life instead of me controlling them.
That really bothered me. Considering my head hurts almost every day now, it is hard not to be obsessed with them. It is hard to control something that is taking over every aspect of my life.
What is better? Pretending to be in control in front of other people, while inside I’m floundering, or trying to find someway to live with this challenge in my life and becoming more actively involved in learning how to cope.
