I wish it was easier to find a way to support myself while dealing with this disability called Chronic Migraines.
Until then, I force myself to show up and clock in at my job as much as I possibly can. With my purse full of pills. With my water bottle, being constantly refilled. With a fake smile on my face.
Tomorrow, I discuss with my manager: me working with sunglasses and/or a hat on. Because lights are the enemy.
I’ve already started wearing earplugs (secretly) because I can’t handle any noise.
I’ll figure this out someday… right?
Little by little, step by step.
