The Rise and Fall of The Migraine Diary
I would like to be able to say that I'm a good migraine diary keeper, that I write down every fluctuation of symptom and pain with precision, and I have managed to show some doctors my efforts, but as a rule I suck at keeping a migraine diary.
Recently, I was rummaging around my office and I came across a couple migraine diaries. As I flipped through them, I realized there seemed to be a trend. I would start out the diaries in an orderly, well documented fashion, but eventually everything dissolved into chaos. I would forget entries, become fed up with the repetition and basically becoming sick of hearing myself whine.
So I made this migraine diary collage to show my struggles in keeping an ongoing migraine diary.
