I simply had to share this.
"“When you let someone (maybe yourself) get away with thinking of migraine as caused by a trigger,” he wrote, “it either makes it your fault (you ate that cheese after all) or hopeless (you are screwed; you can’t control the weather).
When people blame migraines on a person’s failure to control something in their life — be it anxiety, stress or environmental factors — they are succumbing to this same scientifically flawed logic. This misconception is potentially dangerous for migraine sufferers and those advising them, Dr. Young and other neurologists emphasize.
“If they succumb to the myth that people get migraine because they can’t cope with stress,” adds Dr. MacGregor. “They are, one, completely wrong and, two, will not get optimal treatment.”
