Today's prompt is: "Shaking in My Boots." What's your biggest Migraine-related fear. How do you cope with it?
My biggest migraine-related fear used to be that I'd never get better and stop experiencing migraines on a chronic level. Over the past nine years I've had such awesome opportunities to learn and practice coping skills that I don't really hold on to that fear any more. I hope I'll find some options that will reduce the frequency of my attacks so I can work and be a hands on parent when we have kids, but I don't obsess about it. I don't feel like my life is completely on pause. There is some joy in my life, and I'm able to cope with my situation in a way that helps me realize fear is unhelpful.
The past is over and the future isn't promised, so staying in the present moment keeps me from dwelling on things I can't control.
