Last weekend I went shopping. When I went to checkout I was overcome by the smell of gas. I cautiously asked around hoping that I didn’t induce chaos from people fleeing the store from a gas leak, but no one else smelled it. No one? How weird! So when I got home and was changing I smelled it again. I then knew it was me and not a store in danger, lucky them. In fact, I was the one in danger. I am sensitive to smells, sound, light etc. I have always known that smells are a trigger but never realized that it is a symptom also. The next day I was hit with a migraine and learned something new about myself. While spreading the word about migraines I now look at myself totally differently. I used to think I was a girl with a weak immune system who never felt well because of it. In reality, a lot, if not all, that I experience has to do with my disease. It’s either symptoms, triggers, side effects from meds or pre and post migraine damage. At least I can say I’m learning. Another day, another migraine. Do you smell that?
