What Letter Would You Write To Your Family And Friends?

What Letter Would You Write To Your Family And Friends?

Could it be cathartic to write a letter to your friends and family, expressing your feelings about life with migraines? Even if they never read it? This was mine
"A letter to my Family and friends" On this day, I walked out side into the morning sunshine. In this moment of this day, I feel joy. I am optimistically cautious as I emerge into the warmth of the light, away from where the curtains remain drawn. As I write this to you, I feel a smile on my face and revel in this moment.

@A MyMigraineTeam Member, And fellow warriors, thank you for sharing. I understand πŸ’œ as do so many who contribute to this and other similar Migraine groups. We just keep on keeping on πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸšΆπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»because we each deserve to have pain free happiness in our lives. None of us signed up for this. Yesterday, my daughter and I were walking through a mall with my (first) 2 month old grandson. She gets migraines and they have recently increased. We shared a wish to move through just one day, without being hypersensitive to surroundings bright lights, scent, sounds, temperature. It has been so long that I don't remember being free like that. We still had a remarkably good day. In sync, we held our breath a lot, (each warning the other, at first whiff) we upped pace, passing certain stores and people wearing cologne and U-turned to exit brightly lit stores. My daughter πŸ’– and my youngest sonπŸ’–. I know guilt and grief for passing this along. There is still hope for our children, to have good happy less pain filled lives. But in the meantime, who better than us, to advocate, educate and validate with loving compassion.
Hugs to you.

I would write: a book! 🀣 but, suffice to say regardless of all the impact that my illnesses ( migraines incl ) have had on my life & the lives of others:

always remember & never forget that:

I love you! πŸ™

You made me cry because you could not have put this life into words more eloquently. I always feel lost when I try to put it into words.
