“You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” Watch the Josh Grogan video below and listen to the lyrics. How does it make you feel? Which lyrics do you find especially inspiring?
This is a song for the dark days. The days when the depression, that accompanies migraine, is worse than all the other symptoms. The words “You are loved, Don’t give up” resonate within me. It’s a reminder that I AM LOVED, that if I’m gone it WILL matter. People WILL hurt because of my absence. This is important to know.
I’ve personally never considered suicide, but some of our migraine fighters have taken their lives. This disease takes so much away from you. It takes your life, your freedom, your self-esteem, your passion and so much more.
I often feel worthless because I’m very limited in what I can do. As a result, it makes my husband’s load so much heavier. In addition to that, my parents have to step in to assist a lot. I feel like my hubby and I should be helping them now.
Also from time to time, when I decline an invitation or I say I can’t do something because I don’t have enough “spoons” for that day, some people give me the, “Yeah right! You’re such a loser!” look. I know they’re ignorant, that they don’t know the full scope of this disease, but it still crushes me.”
