#MigraineAwarenessMonth blog topic for Day 14 is to discuss what helps us NEVER GIVE UP.
- I watched my dad have #migraines most of his life and he never gave up.
- I had daily migraines from the age of 4 that eventually caused me to have complex regional pain syndrome on the right side of my upper body. I lived in daily fear that my sisters would someday be the same way. I was afraid if I gave up, they would too.
- I had genetic testing to try and find the gene causing the problem so I would not pass it on to my offspring, no luck. But instead I found a treatment regimen that helped me (this took 30 years). I felt comforted knowing that I could successfully treat my children if I was ever so unfortunate as to need this. I went on to have two hilarious and awesome children.
- My daughter recently turned six. She had her first two migraines in the last two weeks. She is the biggest motivation I’ve ever had to NEVER GIVE UP.
