Chronic pain, Migraine and having fun in my own way

 Today I am having a higher pain day but am happy I am able to participate in the U.S. Pain Foundation’s month of empowerment post.

The picture I am posting is of me at my son’s 3rd birthday party.  I have a migraine on almost all birthday’s and holidays.  His birthday was a Paw Patrol party and I was really suffering while setting up for guests to arrive.  We were all wearing masks so I decided to ice my head while staying in the spirit.  While I looked like I was having fun, I was treating my pain and trying to lower my migraine so I would be able to stay at the party.  Although I was not able to fully enjoy the day, I was able to celebrate with loved ones and look cute and festive.  Although I was not able to forget about my chronic pain and “just have fun” I was able to sing happy birthday, watch my baby open his presents and enjoy loved ones.

Share a day that you were able to have fun.  Even if you weren’t able to fully forget about your pain, maybe you were happy about a time you weren’t taken away from an event.  I am grateful for small things.  I may not have been pain free, but I was able to watch my sweet boy blow out his candles.  No matter the pain, seeing him enjoy the day that I had planned was fun in my own way!
