MigrainePal was created because I had unanswered questions about my migraine condition and disappointing results from specialists and so-called experts.

As I discover more facts, findings and results (for better or worse) I share them here along with any insights, research and news I pick up along the way. 

MigrainePal is not a journal of my personal struggles.

It's about sharing the facts about migraine, getting better results and supporting each other. 

You didn't choose to have migraines

And neither did I.

Unfair things happen. Whether its being diagnosed with a disease, demoted for a mistake you didn’t make or convicted of a crime you didn’t commit. The ref might make a bad call, an agreement might be abrogated, a partner might let you down.

Our instinct is to fight these unfairnesses, to succumb if there’s no choice, but to go down kicking and screaming. We want to make it clear that we won’t accept injustice easily, we want to teach the system a lesson, we want them to know that we’re not a pushover.

But will it change the situation? Will the diagnosis be changed, the outcome of the call be any different?

What if, instead, we went at it singing and dancing? What if we walked into our four-year prison sentence determined to learn more, do more and contribute more than anyone had ever dreamed? What if we saw the derailment of one path as the opportunity to grow or to invent or to find another path?

This is incredibly difficult work, but it seems far better than the alternative.

Whilst Seth Godin may not suffer in the same way as we do, he challenges us to take an enlightened perspective on our chronic disease.
