Migraine Awareness Month - Post # 9: Day Dream Believer

Today, the prompt for the Migraine Awareness Blogging Challenge is "Day Dream Believer."
"Describe your dream day - without a Migraine to hold you back."
Today, I woke without pain.  My mind is clear and my power is at 100%. I slayed the dragon.

What shall I do on this glorious day?

  • My day will be rich and full of purpose and meaning. 
  • I will write a story about migraine that goes viral and is read by millions.
  • Because of my advocacy, more funding will be focused toward finding a migraine treatment that works for all migraineurs.
  • I will plan ahead, not worrying that my plans will fail because I am in the headache hole. 
  • I will have a big party for all my friends and family who have supported me throughout this journey. I might even enjoy an adult beverage. Or two. 
  • I will drive to Grand Rapids to visit my ailing 87 year-old mother and spend the night with her, not worrying about bringing a hand-full of pills, plus syringes & needles just in case I need to give myself a shot of Ketorolac. 
  • I will sleep soundly and dream of days without pain.
  • I will awaken the next day full of hope for a better future.

  1. I'm ready to buy that story :-) (Sorry about your mother ailing. That's a big worry)

  2. I spent the night with my mom last night. No major migraine until it was time to make the one hour drive back home. Took a little Indocin and I was back in business. It really meant a lot to my mom to spend the time with her, and it meant the world to me.
