“You aren’t nuts, Migraines hurt” with my Axon Optics glasses
Today I went to see my neurologist per usual. I was prepared and wore my Axon Optics glasses. As I sat there and reached for a magazine I saw a coconut painted with the saying, “You aren’t nuts, Migraines hurt.” Well isn’t that the truth. This was actually one of the first things I saw when I went to my neurologist over 10 years ago. It was a place I knew I wanted to be. They are right, I’m not nuts….I’m hurting.
Anyways, so when I went into the room, I felt so much better that I wasn’t being beaten down by the lights because of my glasses. Now if only they would unplug the clock. The ticking is like a small nail being hammered into my skull with each second. I have never understood why a neurologists office, of all places, would have such triggers surrounding it.
I have seen a request not to wear perfume while visiting the office which is a nice consideration. But what about the lights? Why do they need to be so bright? I can understand a surgical center or a place that needs additional light to diagnose, but I have an invisible disease….no lights needed. They have actually turned off the lights at appointments for me when I’m in heightened pain. So why are they needed? Uh, some things remain a mystery. Until then, I’m wearing my Axon Optics glasses and next time ear plugs![intense_spacer type=”block” height=”75″] [intense_blockquote] [intense_spacer type=”block” height=”15″]

My name is Sarah. I am a chronic migraine and headache sufferer. I am a stay at home mom of 2 and wife to an amazing man. I have suffered tremendously since I was 5 and it has shaped the person I am today. Until I started understanding my disease I was unable to fully understand myself (or at least a big part of me). Knowledge and support have helped me and I hope to do the same for you.[intense_spacer type=”block” height=”15″]
