Hi, I’m Amy and I suffer from migraine.
I hate my brain. I know I can’t very well do without it but it often seems like the enemy.
Migraine is the most common neurological condition (or brain disorder if you like) and it can affect anyone.
The seriousness of migraine is often not realized for several reasons. Firstly it’s in the brain so essentially invisible. Sometimes there’s also the misconception that because it’s ‘in the mind’ it’s imagined and isn’t really real. For people who think that may I remind you that the brain is a physical organ and a very important one – it controls everything and if it is screwed up the body cannot work properly, like if you are in the car and the steering wheel doesn’t work. A similar disorder to migraine is epilepsy.
