A Dream you Dream Alone is Only a Dream

A dream you dream alone

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream.  A dream you dream together is reality.”-John Lennon

I love this statement, yet it should have the disclaimer….with a lot of hard work. Besides hitting the lottery, I can’t think of any dream that can be achieved without hard work and usually needs some luck. If it were easy to obtain, it wouldn’t be a dream. So let’s talk about my plans for migraine.

A Dream, you Dream, Alone is Only a Dream.

Find a Cure

To be cured almost seems too farfetched, but that’s why I dream!

Find Medication that Works

I have been on countless medications, and I have always had side effects from them. For years and years, I didn’t understand the side effect of my medications. I was under the impression that the way I felt was either a side effect of my migraines or my weak system. My migraines have many more symptoms than head pain, and my meds compound the difficulties my body struggles with.

I have found some relief for small amounts of time; then I seem to get resistance, my body changes, or for whatever reason, it stops working. I have even gone to the extreme of having migraine surgery, and it did not leave me with a cure or without side effects. Too many meds, yet when my pain level escalates to above a 7 it seems like there are not enough meds. I’d just like one that works all the time, every time.

Fund Research

I’m talking about this when I discuss hard work and luck. Funding isn’t a priority, even with many people working hard to make it one. I want some celebrities and political figures to back this. That would be lucky….it should be their duty, but it would be blessed.

Stop the Stigma

Give migraine the respect and recognition that it deserves.

A Dream, you Dream, Together is Reality.

Increase Support Systems

I am fortunate to have a massive circle of love and support, but I’m not sure how I would do it alone. I’ve spoken with many battling alone, and it’s not ok. With migraine comes a plethora of physical and mental obstacles that need to be addressed. There is a great need for support in a world that can seem misunderstood and isolated.

I can go on and on about my dreams and the dreams of the migraine community. Together we can make it a reality, but not without hard work. Plans aren’t handed to you, so it only makes sense to work together.
