I'm participating in the Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge every day in June.


Today's prompt is: "Let's Do the Monster Mash!" Choose a movie monster that reminds you of your Migraines and tell us why.


I must admit up front that I'm not too up on movies featuring monsters. I'm probably making my choice based on just having seen The Avengers with my husband, but I think the Incredible Hulk would be a good choice for a number of reasons.


Bruce Banner can't always control when he becomes the Hulk, and I feel that way about my migraines. Despite identifying many triggers, there are still many migraine attacks that I can't tie to any triggers.


I also see similarities in the dominating nature of becoming the Hulk and the way experiencing a migraine attack takes over every single part of your body and mind.
I'm not really sure the Hulk counts as a monster, but I think his condition is very relatable for anyone living with migraine disease.
