Today’s prompt: “Stronger – What Doesn’t Kill You” Interpret the Song: Watch the video below by Kelly Clarkson and listen to the lyrics. Then tell us how it applies to living with Headaches or Migraines.
What an inspiring song! I have to admit, chronic migraine has weakened me. This blog challenge and reading the posts of other migraineurs is motivating me to begin my fight again. However, I have benefited from being chronically ill. See below for a poem I wrote on July 30, 2013:
… when I wasn’t sick,
but took life for granted.
… when I was out 80% of the time,
but read less.
… when I wasn’t dependent on others,
but took family and friends for granted.
… when I could eat what I wanted,
but paid no attention to health.
… when I sympathized with the sick,
but lacked empathy.
… when I worked,
but didn’t save.
… when I married my husband,
but didn’t appreciate,
“In sickness and in health”,
or how much he really loves me.
… when I didn’t realize how much I could learn from a trial.
