Trying to work through a headache slowly turning into a migraine. I’ve always have this thing about living with headaches, I might as well do something because either way I’m going to be in pain. At least if I’m doing something I’ll get my mind off of it. It’s always been the way I fight through any type of pain, whether it’s a headache that turns into a migraine, chest pain, pelvic pain, etc. It’s something that has caused a lot of issues due to people assuming I must not be in that much pain if I can do “insert activity here.” Here’s the thing, I just deal with pain differently, it doesn’t mean I’m in less pain then what I’m describing.
Beware when you call people fakers, when you see them do things despite their pain. We all have our ways of dealing with pain. Don’t let your perception stigmatize someone.
