Migraine Superheros: Migraine Awareness Month #2

Standard

As is so often the case these days, I’m running a day behind.

I had planned to post a blog every day this month in honor of Migraine Awareness Month and the Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blog Challenge. Unfortunately, June 1st turned into June 2nd without my having even logged onto the Internet, let alone posted a migraine blog. This time, however, I have a very good reason for missing my deadline: I was finishing my e-book Finding Happiness with Migraines, A Do It Yourself Guide, which will be released sometime next week!

I’ll be posting additional details about the book in the upcoming days. For now, I turn to the MHAM blog challenge of the day:

If I were to chose just one person to be my Migraine Superhero, it would have to be my husband. Though he doesn’t truly understand what a migraine feels like, he always understands when I need to take a break because of a bad one. On those occasions, he helps me get into bed, turns out the lights, instructs our ten-year-old to “let Mama rest,” and takes care of the baby. He cooks dinner, reads to the kids, and brings me whatever I need to get comfortable.

In our busy, busy household, where neither I nor my husband ever has a second of downtime, his actions are nothing short of miraculous.

He also never resents me for my illness nor shames me for feeling badly. He doesn’t try to make me feel guilty, and he always lets me know how much he loves me and appreciates me. I wish every migraineur a “superhero” as warm, loving, and kind as mine.

 

June 2013, Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, is dedicated to Unmasking the Mystery of Chronic Headache Disorders. The 2013 Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Blog Challenge is a project of FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.

  1. It’s nice to know I’m not the only migraineur crazy enough to have kids! I don’t know what I’d do without my husband, either. Your entry definitely resonates with me and all the times I’ve leaned (heavily) on him.

  2. Thanks for helping to spread Migraine awareness with this awesome post! We can’t always do all of the posts all of the time, but we’ll love to read what you do have time to write for us 🙂 Good to meet you!

  3. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking the time and actual effort to
    generate a superb article… but what can I say… I put things
    off a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
