Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Day #5

Migraine and Headache Awareness Day #5
Using Alternate Prompt  - Don't Cry for Me Argentina: We don't want to be pitied, but we aren't always open about telling people how they can help us. How would you like to be helped? 

Today's prompt for #MHAM13 is interesting and one I can readily identify with. I've never found it easy asking for help and I'm not sure why. Everyone needs help now and again and being disabled makes one need help a bit more. As difficult as it is to ask for help, not doing so makes me feel overwhelmed, stressed and anxious.

Today's prompt has pushed me into thinking about what I would ask to be helped with. One thing comes to mind - YARD WORK. That's it. If I could have consistent help with yard work, I think I would feel  less overwhelmed and less guilty about not being able to  keep up with it. Looking into my yard doesn't give me a sense of pleasure or relief, but a sense of dread and guilt. Dread because of the amount of work that needs to be done, and guilt because I am unable to do it.

So there you go, short and sweet - having migraines (and many other chronic ills) and getting yard work done does not add up.

Thanks for reading and happy migraine and headache awareness month,
