Today's prompt is: "More Often that Not." Today is Chronic Migraine Awareness Day. People with chronic Migraine have a Migraine more often than not. Think of and share a random act of kindness that you could do for someone with chronic Migraine.
First off, can I just saw how happy I am that we have a day specially set aside during Migraine Awareness Month to acknowledge the burden of chronic migraine (migraine 15 or more days a month)? I love it!
As someone who lives with chronic migraine, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that if someone close to me offered to come help us get caught up on cleaning and other household projects I'd flip my lid with joy. There is never enough time in the day for my husband to keep up with everything, though he does a remarkable job with everything he is able to get done. It's just too much for one person who also is also gone 12+ hours a day for work.
Just a little thing like coming over and doing the dishes, bringing dinner, taking the kids to the park or offering to accompany the migraineur to a doctor's appointment could ease the burden on the person in your life living with migraine disease more than you know. Please consider it.
What random act of kindness would thrill you as a person living with migraine disease?
