Did that title catch your attention? Good. Here's the issue...

I keep seeing people in pain, more pain than they need to be. It doesn't matter if it's pain from tension-type headaches, cluster headaches, Migraine attacks, or other head pain. Obviously, I can't be referring to everyone, but sadly, too many of us can fall into these traps. It's time to address some of the ways we can sabotage ourselves. Given how we can and often do sabotage ourselves, we'd might as well be deliberately banging our heads against a wall.

So, here we go with ways to give yourself a headache or Migraine.

  • Don't investigate to determine your triggers.
  • If you know what your triggers are, ignore them and do whatever you want rather than trying to avoid them.
  • Don't choose a good doctor who will work with you as a treatment partner. Go to just any doctor and blindly accept what he or she says, regardless of whether it makes sense.

  • Have a good doctor, but don't do your part. Don't take charge of your health care. Just "go with the flow."
  • Don't take your treatment plan seriously. It's OK. It's not as if Migraines could lead to strokes or anything serious. (Yeah, right.)
  • Don't learn about your condition. Just ignore all the great resources for patient education. I mean, do they really apply to YOU?
  • Live in denial that you have a disease or condition that, at the best, lowers your quality of life; or, at the worst, endangers your life.
  • Ignore your overall health. Who wants to be healthy anyway? Isn't good health overrated?

Now that I've been totally off-the-wall and hopefully given you a few chuckles, I hope you'll take a few minutes to review this again. Do you see yourself in any of the examples above? If you're a headache sufferer or Migraineur, you have a physical condition that can significantly impact your quality of life and even endanger your health. The good news is that we can do a great deal for ourselves to control these are disorders and diseases.

Live well; live safely!
