Things You Should Never Say
To a Person With a Migraine Headache
"Smile! I need to see if the flashon my camera is working!"
"What do you mean you need to rest after your headache?
All you've done is lie around for the past two days!"
"Hey, let's go out on the boat today!"
"Well, did you take an aspirin?"
"Listen to this great new song - I'll turn the volume way up
so you can get the full surround-sound effect."
"I know what will make you feel better.
You just need to get outside and get some sunshine and exercise."
"You probably just aren't getting enough vitamin C."
"Let's open the blinds! It's too dark in here!"
And never-ever-ever say:
"It's ONLY a headache!"
