Last week, several people wrote letters to their brain. I made a comment on Jay’s post over at beardedigor.wordpress.com that I would be afraid of what I would say. He said I should do it…Challenge Accepted!

Dear Brain,

What On Earth is going on up there? For the many years you would act up on rare occasions but then you decided to be naughty every single day.

It was bad enough when my the right side of my face would droop and my vision would get all sparkley. But when you decided that I didn’t need my right arm to work you went way over the line. Never mind the horrendous pain, which is bad enough in itself, having no peripheral vision or depth perception makes this way too much!

But those things were not enough for you…oh no…you had to go further. You took away my ability to talk clearly and to put my words together into anything that might resemble a sentence.

Then the icing on the cake is the vertigo and nausea this all causes. I am just going to say that I am not too pleased with you!

LETTER TO MY BRAIN - #migraine #hemiplegicmigraine #aphasia #aura #paralysisYour actions go even deeper than you can realize!  In an effort to calm you down I had to make some major diet changes. I gave up chocolate for you! CHOCOLATE!!! Then I had to give up hard cheese…yeap, no cheddar or Parmesan for me! You just kicked out all Italian food and Macaroni and Cheese. Then there are the nitrates in cured meats. I now have to pay top dollar for uncured bacon and I miss baked ham so much.

Please tell me that you understand how much I have sacrificed to make you happy again because you sure don’t seem to appreciate it! If there is anything that I can do to rectify this situation, please let me know as soon as possible.

Sincerely Begging,

  1. Jen, this was an amazing letter to your brain! Personally I think it is helpful to write a letter to what we are dealing with. It helps get our feelings about what we live with out and it sometimes makes things littler clearer. At least it allows to get the frustrations out! I am in the process of trying to give up cheese, but I have failed miserably. I will keep try though. I have heard that cheese and really any dairy are really bad for autoimmune illnesses, but I get so angry because these illnesses already try to control us so much, now it wants to take our favorite foods away as well.
    Thank you for sharing your letter. I hope it helped you!! Take care and keep positive!

  2. Hey Jen!

    The mind is such a dangerous place some times both physically and mentally. Migraines rampage my days causing normal actions. Sorry that your brain is tearing you so badly sometimes.
