Remember that post I wrote ages ago about how many ribbons can happen to represent each of us chronically ill folk?! Well, I’ve got some more to add to my ribbon prettification list now!…
I now get a purple ribbon for migraines. I like purple! 🙂 But not migraines 😦
Each ribbon tends to stand for multiple conditions and I didn’t realise until recently that this colour also covers my throbbing-head-flashy-light-stagger-away-from-all-light-and-noise issues!
I also didn’t realise that my tendency to migraine over and over (once I’ve had one migraine I’m reeaally prone to them for several weeks afterwards, and the longer it’s been the safer I am) is what is referred to as cluster migraines. I found out during one of my UK disability assessments. So I guess really I should go all out and overboard with colour and add the recently created ribbon for chronic migraines…
Ahhh, instant prettification, right?! 😉
