Thank goodness for writing prompts! I have nothing interesting or creative to post so, I consulted The Daily Post for their daily prompt idea for today. Here it is:
“The Placebo Effect… if you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?”
The ailment that I’d want to cure? Chronic migraines and headaches.

Why? Because I am a chronic migraineur myself. I suffer from debilitating migraines 3 out of the 4 weeks in a month. My quality of life is severely lacking due to the daily pain stemming from my brain and the co-morbid physical pain called fibromyalgia.
Plainly speaking, it sucks, but they’re not a terminal disease, by any means. At least, I’m still alive and have little chance of dying from one migraine by itself.
The only thing is… I’m tired of having these migraines. I’ve had them for over 25 years, but it’s only been in the past few years that they turned chronic. This suffering stuff has got to go! 🙂
Do you suffer from migraines? If so, you should make the time to visit: Migraine.com. This website is my online migraine support group. Their articles are written by other fellow migraineurs and doctors from around the world. It’s a wonderful resource to have and share.
Despite the pain I deal with now, I remain hopeful that one day someone will actually find a cure for those who suffer like me. They’re getting so close!
Thanks for stopping by today!
