Migraine Pain Card
58/100
Kick in the Head

This is a very personal card for me. I have suffered from Migraine Stasis - Migraines that have lasted for YEARS. 

I had to quit my job, change my life, and give up so many things. 

Recently, a friend who has known me for 20 years, said it was as if I had done into a coma.

For sooo long, they never never never had a break. I lie in the dark in my bed, and wept with the vast dark nothingness of constant pain.

2 years ago, I started to receive a treatment that helped cause breaks - for the first time, I had whole days even a week here and there WITHOUT a migraine.

At this time, a team of doctors are finding new things, and little by little, despite the fact that I still have the migraines (just before the every two week IV's - from 3-7 days of them, at a time, instead of everyday) I am coming out of my "coma"

Humans are not made to remember pain. 
This is my card - it shows what I call "The Pain Helmet" - at the worst times, it is as if I wear a heavy metal helmet that is lined with spikes. It has cranks that drive the spikes deeper and deeper inside my head.

On top of the pain, is dizziness, nausea, inability to look at light and sensitivity to sounds.

I hope that this card shows just a bit of what it is to suffer this kind of pain.

I dedicate this set to all people who live with chronic pain.

Outstanding! I'm so sorry for all the pain you've been going through, and I'm so happy that you can be so wonderfully creative in spite of the pain. I think you are the most creative person I know.

I am sure your friend who made the comment about 'the coma' ... meant no harm. It is hard enough to deal with enormous loss, without having people point it out to you.
Through your many gifts, you not only survive ... you thrive. I am not minimizing your suffering at all. I know this much is true, xxoo

Cabinets of curiosities in history:
Cabinets of curiosities (also known as Wunderkammer, Cabinets of Wonder, or wonder-rooms) were encyclopedic collections of types of objects whose categorical boundaries were, in Renaissance Europe, yet to be defined. Modern science would categorize the objects included as belonging to natural history (sometimes faked), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings) and antiquities.
