Today's WEGO Health Activist Writing Month Prompt is: "Spirit Animal Day. Give you or your condition a spirit animal and write about yourself or it as though you/it are that animal. What qualities of the animals do you or your condition possess that are positive? How is this a metaphor?"
Feeling rather uninspired (yet again), I decided to Google "What is a spirit animal?" My search returned some quizzes to tell you which spirit animal fits your personality, so I started there: What's your animal spirit?
I think this is rather right on. Living with chronic migraines has made me much tougher than I used to be. You really don't have any choice when you live with a chronic pain condition. Either you bear it or it breaks you, and I refuse to let migraine disease break me. However, I do think I'm a bit more fiery tempered than this quiz would suggest. I'm not an especially patient person. Though I'm better than I used to be, sometimes I'm still quick to anger. But what can I say? Like everyone else I'm a work in progress.
