I’ve been a bit quiet online this week due to the dreaded M.
In May, I mostly looked like this (although with less winter attire and a few more grey hairs!). It was nice and I felt some hope that new meds were working.
In June, I mostly looked like this. Unkempt with a droopy left eye and no make up. My migraine face.
Top right was this week (it’s been shocking) and bottom left was a 6 day epic, painful attack. During a migraine attack is usually the only time I will take a ‘selfie’.
Obviously, I didn’t look like the bottom right picture as I’m not a chalkboard. G had left me a message during one migraine attack where I couldn’t feel my face. I love him.
So it’s been up and down. I do find it cathartic to share my migraine experiences and to let people know that bloggers lives aren’t perfect. I was inspired by this post – What Does A Migraine Look Like? If you are a migraine sufferer please take a look at Victoria’s blog.
Sometimes it’s too much to put on a brave face. Sometimes it’s OK and I can function through a day of work in a haze, just doing enough to get by. Today I feel a bit silly for sharing myself looking my absolute worst, but part of me doesn’t care.
I hope you have all had a good month and you are happy, healthy and well.
Onwards and upwards eh! I’ll be back tomorrow with a cheerier post I promise. It includes pretty bracelets and news of a giveaway.
