      Yeah. I'm deciding that one of the worst parts of chronic conditions is feeling misunderstood. It hurt so badly bc it comes from loved ones and they don't realize they're sticking in a knife. My roommate who also has migraines has judged me multiple times by saying I "don't like heat" or implying in a wimp about heat. It really hurts bc I love being out in the sun and heat. But I obviously can't justify giving myself a migraine for it. On Saturday someone close to me commented that I dont even try to go to the gym bc I said that I had never successfully had a gym routine. They missed the subtle difference. I had *tried* but had failed quite a few times because I'd flare up a migraine. I've also had several loved ones over the years doubt my headaches or say I was faking to get out of things. They'd also say "Nobody wants to hear about your headaches." It has done untold damage.

      Yes. Yes yes yes. I had been thinking I was crazy til I went down a Google rabbit hole and realized it's a thing. About a week ago I bought cooling neck towels. Seem to be working very well for when I have to be outside.

        @WhistleWhileYouWait my stepdad always says i complain too much because he works in over 100 degree conditions, but because of all the medications i’m on and my migraines i’m so sensitive to heat.. like i thought i was crazy so reading this makes me feel less crazy lol! i have to get some of those like pop open ice packs i’m so gross and sweaty 🥵
