My name is Kate, and I've had migraines since I was little. I've decided to whine about it. If you have migraines, we can whine together. I have decided it will make things better.

In all seriousness, though, they say writing about your migraines helps in coping with them. So here's to coping!

FYI: This is my secondary blog. My main one is samayla, so if you get a random follower, that's me :)

MHAM Day 7: Pretty Woman
What do you do to look good when you feel like crap?
Ever notice how, when Eliza is all dressed up, she gets all the attention?





No matter how bad she feels about herself at the time, everyone around her is all atwitter at how put-together she appears.
Whenever I feel absolutely awful, I play dress up.  A pretty pink dress and ballet flats, maybe a flower in my hair, my nails painted if I have enough energy…  Women compliment me and ask where I got my accessories.  Men hold doors and call me ma’am.  Children tug on my hemline and tell me I look pretty.
I’m one of them:

…at least on the surface.  Instead of pitying or judging me, they’re accepting me without question.  
And if I play “normal” long enough, sometimes I can almost forget it’s just an act.
