I have a migraine.

You might be asking yourself why in the world this should count for my 40 days of risk/giving up pride journey for Lent. I think it counts, and this is why. I have a fear of people thinking I'm a hypochondriac. I never want to admit when I don't feel well, because I'm afraid people will think I'm complaining, making things up for attention, or that I'm that person who's always sick. I don't want to be obnoxious or a burden. I don't want to be someone who people can't depend on. So not only does this count, but it's actually a fairly big risk for me. You might think I'm whining or complaining. I might actually be whining or complaining. But here's hoping that you don't think less of me for it. And if you do, maybe I'll learn to be okay with that.

I had migraines and your granddaddy had migraines...and your aunt. Family tree's fault, sorry. Hope you feel better quickly.

People are going to think whatever they want to think, and there's not a whole lot you can do about that...but I know you already know that. Just be who you are...be as open and honest and transparent as you feel comfortable with...and surely life will get a wee bit easier to live. (edited to not display as my Scouting profile)
