Chronic Pain: Migraine and having Fun in My Own Way

Living with Chronic Pain in my own way

Today I am having a higher pain day, but I am happy I can participate in the U.S. Pain Foundation’s month of empowerment post.

Chronic Pain

The picture I am posting is of me at my son’s 3rd birthday party. I have a migraine on almost all birthdays and holidays. His birthday was a Paw Patrol party, and I was suffering while setting up for guests to arrive. We were all wearing masks, so I decided to ice my head while staying in the spirit. While I looked like I was having fun, I was treating my pain and trying to lower my migraine so I could stay at the party. Although I was not able to fully enjoy the day, I was able to celebrate with loved ones and look cute and festive. Although I could not forget about my chronic pain and “just have fun,” I was able to sing happy birthday, watch my baby open his presents, and enjoy loved ones.

Share a day that you were able to have fun. Even if you couldn’t entirely forget about your chronic pain, maybe you were happy about a time you weren’t taken away from an event. I am grateful for small things. I may not have been pain-free, but I was able to watch my sweet boy blow out his candles. No matter the pain, seeing him enjoy the day I had planned was fun in my way!

    This weekend we are going to Paw Patrol Live! We got the tickets for my son’s 4th birthday. I ran across this post and thought, “A lot can change in a year, but some things stay the same!”‘
