In a world where modern medicine has been as yet unable to reverse the ills of aging and disease, we are still bound to bodies that suffer. #ChronicLife tends to be rife with medications and side effects, relapses and remissions and talk of new treatments. In all the treatments I have tried and the painkillers that have been pushed, the strongest medicine I have found has come in the form of my friends. Those who encourage me when I forget myself. People who offer me a meal when I can't think to cook. Amazing friends who sit with me and say nothing, or everything but don't try to fix me. These folks let me hold the light for them, we play tag in generosity, kindness, patience and joy. They continue to be my best teachers. It is to each of you that I bow daily. Many of you I have not met in person. But I hope to someday. (Invisible Jet willing)
Migraine Royalty isn't some shtick I dreamt up. It is an understanding that we are all connected. Many of us through pain and similar experiences. We are both teachers and students. We have deep understanding to offer one another. Friendship, kindness, generosity, understanding, these can be transformative forces in a person's life. I am ongoingly humbled by the strength I witness in the people I meet through Migraine Royalty. I am blessed by your letters and always cherish your stories. Thank you for being here and thank you for being part of making people well. We are creating something pretty special. Where we take it is up to us. Even on your worst days, you can remember: You are nobly born and you belong. We #Royals are always here for you.
