Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I live with Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus, migraines, and many other chronic conditions. My mission is to help you become the best version of yourself while living with a disability because although sometimes you may feel alone you are not!

    What a wonderful, informative post! You are so right about people misunderstanding so much about migraines. My son gets them as a part of Lyme disease, and I get “menstrual migraines” due to hormonal shifts. I think the biggest misconception is – like you said – people thinking “it’s just a headache.” When my son gets a bad one, he has to wear sunglasses in the house and lie down in a dark, quiet room. Luckily, treating his Lyme has helped reduce them, and when he does still get one, he has a couple of meds that work pretty well (if he catches it early).

    Great post – I will share widely in the hopes of educating others!

      Thank you, I am glad you liked it and I appreciate you sharing my post. I have to do pretty much the same thing as your son during a bad attack and the only medicine is sitting in a dark room and hope I can sleep it off! Luckily I can tell when one is about to strike days before it actually happens so I can plan my day accordingly!
