Migraine Day

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies. Thanks for being here, I’m glad you’re here. Today has been a tough one for me. Been fighting a migraine and I’m on day three of it. So the spoons are few. Not going to be doing much of a post because my focus is poor. I am going to try to do my scheduled stream and I will play for as long as the spoons last. We all know how that goes!


eggshell fragile
with new skin
freshly shedding the old
sitting here in the sun
not brave enough yet to venture
recalling all the things
that I thought made me
and suddenly realizing
I’m none
I’m only this
nearing the last days
but always just born
still discovering
everything around me
is awe and luxury
still so new
standing on this earth
I can never be old
forever just a child
hoping for the answers
and realizing I have none

I’m feeling like focusing on anything is a small hurdle to climb over.

The Existential Crisis

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I am going to be talking about the existential crisis and how they relate to having a chronic illness.

Let’s start off by talking about what an existential crisis is. Basically, it is when you reach a point in your life that you question the purpose, value and meaning of your life. This term comes from the ideas presented in existential philosophy. The central idea of which is that we have no purpose, value or meaning in life beyond that which we ourselves give it. Because of this, it is possible to have that foundation undermined.

My Migraines

Hello my Zebras and Spoonies! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I want to talk about my experience with migraines as an installment in the “My Diagnosis” series. I personally have two kind of migraines. I experience Abdominal Migraines and Migraine Headaches with Aura (or Classic Migraine). While they are very different experiences, they are technically the same thing and I want to talk about them together to highlight how varied the Migraine experience can be.
