Do you like good quotes? I love them! I've been looking around for quotes that could apply to us as Migraine Ninjas and have found a few. I thing the quote on the image below is very true for us — in many ways...
- We need to learn our bodies. We can't call our doctors every time we have a Migraine, so we have to make some treatment decisions for ourselves when a Migraine strikes. We can't do that without learning our bodies. Research has shown that Migraine abortive treatments such as the triptans — sumatriptan (Imitrex) rizatriptan (Maxalt) zolmitriptan (Zomig), etc. — work better when used early in a Migraine attack. For many of us, the prodrome phase may be too early to treat, but if we get an aura, some of us benefit greatly from taking our abortive medication during the aura phase. We can't do that unless we've learned our bodies well enough to recognize prodrome and aura symptoms. Here are some helpful links:
- We also need to learn ourselves intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. This is critical so we know how to deal with ourselves as we live with Migraine disease. We also need this knowledge so we can let other people know how to live with and support us.
What else do you think we need to learn about ourselves? Please feel free to leave a comment below and share. Also, if you have quotes that you believe apply to us as Migraine Ninjas, please feel free to comment ans share those as well.
