Migraine Awareness Month #3 The Hunger Games

What healthy habits have you adopted to put the odds of better Migraine and Headache Disorders Management on your part?

To paraphrase a famous quote from poet and author Maya Angelou, “When you know better, you do better.”  This is so true for the way I manage Migraine.  Over the years, I’ve discovered what triggers my Migraines and subsequently avoid those as best as possible.

The odds are pretty high that if I live a little dangerously and indulge in some forbidden fare, I almost always suffer the Migraine consequences.  Take alcohol for example.  Sometimes I’d love nothing more than to savor a delicious adult beverage when we dine out with friends.  If I give in to the urge, nine times out of ten, a Migraine comes on like an evil whammy from the old game show, Jokers Wild (and just as obnoxiously too).

I also try to sleep or rest when in the tumultuous throes of Migraine.  It’s an indulgence I couldn’t take when I worked.  Now I’m able to listen to my head a little better, and if I feel the need to stay in bed longer to let medication seep in, then I do so. 

I have lived many, many, many years and am still learning.  I try to do better when I know better.  But there is this human element to me which makes me forget that which is best.  Unfortunately, I don’t need anyone to say “told you so”.  I have a built-in migraine app for that!


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

Just trying to navigate a life circumvented by chronic migraines. Sometimes I write about managing with those, but at other times I am prone to deviate a bit.

    I just came across your blog while searching for Maya Angelou funnily enough.
    But i am a healer, a sort of faith healer. I normally do things like backs, and muscle problems, like trapezius myalgia, ear complaints, complications after pregnancy, and a lot of other things.

    Also have cured low blood pressure, which is dangerous, as there is no cure, and the lady told me that she was in danger of loosing her [driving] license, after fainting 5 times.

    Anyway I had a recent success in healing a migraine. A friend of mine wife, gets migraines every single week, so I offered to heal that for her. But I MUST have her permission, as it is a no no to heal without that.

    so I asked him for a photo, as that helps with distant healing. That was in February, and she is ok since then.

    I’m offering to heal your migraines for you. I know how that sounds, but you know, it can happen if you are open. But listen to your feelings and decide for yourself.

    If not, I wish you all of Gods love in the future, and suggest you pray often for him to help you. Mind you God works through his helpers normally- that’s you and me and all who do good in this world.

    Sry for posting on comments please delete. Couldn’t find the contact page.
