Migraines


Dear Brooke, I’ve had migraines for years, around 2 per month at unpredictable times, usually for 24 to 48 hours. When we studied time I noticed that I avoid putting a lot on my calendar because I’m afraid of having commitments when I have a migraine (I’d generally keep the commitment and suffer a lot). I also avoid making many social commitments for the same reason. This makes life much easier…but smaller. As I write this I’m thinking maybe I just need to get much better at canceling when I need to… but I feel bad to let people down.
