Migraine Awareness Month #23 – Bruce Almighty

How does spirituality and/or religion help you cope with Migraine/Headache Disorder?

After growing up in a family with a fairly strict religious faith which included church and private school, I’m more comfortable having the world being my temple.  I’ve always felt a strong connection to God and a higher power.  This has sustained me throughout my life.

My spirituality gives me hope and faith that there is much more to what we know as life.  I see that in the beauty of people and nature when I’m out in the world.  But if I’m sidelined with Migraine, which is at least twenty days out of the month, then I see the wonder of God in picture sharing through Twitter and mostly Pinterest. 

When I look at so many beautiful animals, insects, birds and sea creatures, I take much comfort that God has given us so much.  I never fail to be amazed at how many unique creatures there are on this Earth.  No longer do I feel so isolated, even if I’m physically separated from others.  It may not take the migraine pain away, but the picture scrolling and pinning as well as having the encouragement of Twitter friends makes me feel loved and empowered.

This picture is one of several which shows an angel cloud.  A few friends have shared their own personal angels they’ve spotted in cloud formations.  This inspires me and gives me hope that we have spirits watching over us in good times and in bad.

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.
