Pinterest Inspired Day 27: Migraine Fail

My very first migraine was when I was in 6th grade. On Halloween. I will never forget it.

My mom had made me a wonderful penguin costume and I was having a slumber party. I had made the invitations and a trick or treat bag for each girl. Halloween was on a Friday and even in middle school we still had Halloween parties and costume parades.

I didn't even make it to the school party. I was blinded by the "aura" in my eyes and then came the nausea... I went home demanding darkness and coldness. All of my senses were at maximum hypersensitivity. I would fill the bathroom sink up with ice cubes and water and then submerge my face in it hoping to numb the pain. By dinner time I was feeling better but it was too late and the party had been canceled.

A migraine query on Pinterest reveals a lot of interesting art and illustrations about the pain of migraines. If you do not get migraines, count yourself lucky. They are debilitating to say the least.
