Entry #10 (Findings from Research Level 9)
Many people around the world with my health condition of chronic migraines become depressed and worried about the effects their migraines will have on their relationships. This can include family, friends, personal, professional and romantic arenas. They often fear disappointing others or being treated differently due to their migraines. It's imperative that sufferers develop a routine of sorts. This can include exercising regularly, nutritional consumption, undergoing various therapies, seeking out support groups or communal gatherings, sleeping patterns, avoiding their unique individual or multiple triggers, following a medical approach after consulting with their Family doctor, Neurologist or Migraine specialist. I've found that sometimes especially with the 1 to 4 out of 10 pain ratio migraines that the mind over matter concept can be applied and successfully followed through. It's like the art of not giving the problem any attention and thinking about other things instead. Not becoming obsessed about what one is feeling or letting what one is feeling take over their lives. There's a new concept called brain fog which is the side effect where you tend to feel cloudy or spacey due to the medication(s) taken. I've experienced this and it's not too pleasant of a feeling. It could be a significant sign that you are eating the wrong foods or are dehydrated as well.
