So the migraine tumblr blog I follow did a blurb on trends that migraine suffers can’t participate in current fashion and wanted to write my own struggle with current fashion styles.

I went into Walmart yesterday looking for a mothers day present, as soon as I got to the assecories and jewelery section I started moping.

I’m not able to wear necklaces, even the lightest weight ones pull on my neck, on top of that anything touching the back of my neck sets off the nerves that are sensitive and triggers my migraines, and I used to wear tons of gaudy assecories.c

Heavy or long earrings same thing they just pull. Hair things like barrets or bows or clips if they are pulling even a little funny flairs my migraine and don even try hairbands.

It sucks since I love assecorizing and hair things and all that. Now I can barely curl or straighten my hair.
