I’ve been meaning to write a year-end round up about my Migraines in 08 and what my Migraine Plan is for the coming year, but then my hamster died over the holidays and it’s totally derailed my intentions.
It’s amazing how even a little hamster can make a difference in your life, especially when you have a chronic illness. Pets are so important. They don’t judge you. They always listen. They are happy to see you with or without a Migraine. They accept you for who you are.
I think hamsters are a good Migraine Sufferer’s pet. They are quiet. They are not high maintenance. It doesn’t take much to make them happy. They each have a distinctive little personality. They are not too stinky. In addition, if you keep a hamster, you are rescuing them from the clutches of possibly evil children, who might not appreciate them like you do.
I was trying to think what makes the best pet for someone with Migraines, but it is so subjective. My cat and my guinea pig seem to fit the bill for me, and so did my little ham. What do you think makes the best pet for Migraineurs?
