something isn't right

I've been feeling pretty down all week and I think this collage sums up my feelings with being overwhelmed with migraine. The Botox isn't working. Everything seems too bright, busy and confused.

Hi Migraine Chick.

I was hunting for info re migraines when I came across your blog.

Sorry to see the Botox doesn't appear to be working. For myself, it's been a God-send. I still get migraines, but I no longer have 3 weeks off work at a time.

Don't despair. As hard as it is, try not to let the migraines bring you down. I still panic each time I get a migraine and if I don't snap out of it quickly, end up with cluster migraines.

Try not to feel left behind if the botox doesn't work for you. I know how years of chronic pain can make you feel sad, angry and depressed.

Hang in there, keep promoting awareness and don't forget that there is more to you than just your crappy migraines!

Thank you so much for your comment, Karen. I really appreciate your kind words and encouragement. I liked how you said "there is more to you than just your crappy migraines." That is my new affirmation of the week!
