Migraine, There Was A Time

Some of us can hardly remember a time when we were not plagued by our migraine illness. Migraine takes little bits and large chunks of our time here on this earth. But, for most of us there really was a time when;

You laughed so hard, something flew out of your nose.

Bending over to put on socks and shoes did not cause your temples to throb.

You could enjoy the beauty of the rain.

You could look at the beautiful blue sky without sunglasses.

Waking up to Folgers in your cup was the best start to a great day. Now you can't have the caffeine.

Music was for playing LOUD.

An evening glass of wine helped you relax.

You would rather work in the yard than lay in bed.

You enjoyed having the car windows down and letting the blowing wind race through your hair.

You could make plans for next weekend and stick with them.

People only looked at you funny when you told a joke.

"How are you doing?" didn't require a pregnant pause before answering.

Your pillow only recognized you during regular sleeping hours.

The sound of children playing warmed your heart and didn't hammer your head.

Working around the house was a pleasing choice and not a neglected chore.

You could tolerate someone wearing too much cologne.

Everyday was one in which you could keep you feet on the ground.

You could eat anything you wanted without fear of food allergies.

You know that at one time, there are a million more wonderful things that could happen in your life that didn't slow you down, cause pain, and ruin plans. Please feel free to add to this list. I would love to share your ideas as well. Also, sorry if the attached videos gross you out. I find them very funny.
