So who would I invite….. a world leader? – they have stupid political games to play, a top journalist? – they are always chasing the latest story, A top neurologist? – well they should know already….
You know I would actually invite a chronic migrainer who has just started on their journey and who are lost in the world of pain, aura and information overload….. wishing that someone would hand them a pill and take it all away….
And why?……….. because to give just one person the ‘hope’ that this can be managed is a gift I would like to give many many times………. yes migraine is cruel, yes it takes your life away, yes there is no cure……. BUT you can gain management……….. it is a long hard road and one which is different for everyone……….. but when the penny drops that you are not going to be given a pill and it will not just go away, you open the door to realising that ‘you’ have to take control and listen to your own body and keep trying – one day you will find something which helps with the management.
I would for the most part simple pour the tea and listen……… and of course end with a very gentle hug xxxx
