Helping Others have Hope with Migraine

hope with migraine

What do you do or say to help others have hope with Migraine?

Over the years, I have had hundreds, if not thousands, of pieces of advice about my Migraines. Most of the time it is well-intended but wildly misunderstood. Just do this; why can’t you do that? All you need is… Well thank you, but that’s not going to cure me. So when I’m talking to sufferers like myself, I listen more than talk. If they want to speak, I hear them and try to be there. As a woman, I like to talk things out and I don’t need an answer because there isn’t one. I would love a solution, but a simple “I’m sorry” or “how can I help?” means a lot.

I started my blog as a way to talk out my feelings and give hope with migraine and support others. When I see someone comment on how they are feeling, I like to pass my post along to them to say, “I’m here, I understand and you are not alone.” I felt alone for many years with my condition and telling someone that I experience and feel the same way hopefully gives hope with migraine. I don’t always comment and think sharing my experience is more powerful by saying, “I have felt that way too, have hope you are not alone.” Being misunderstood is difficult and giving hope that someone else understands has been influential to me and I hope to pass that power on to others in need.
