I’ve had these headaches since I was about 12 years old. All throughout my adolescent life, even though I went to doctors and got tests done, I felt bad asking for help from other people. I felt guilty always having others tend to me. I would tell my younger self that I can’t do this alone. To accept the help of others around you, because the people who stick around never feel like they’re being guilted into helping; they do it because they care. I would say it’s ok to feel vulnerable and helpless at times, because there will be days where those two emotions overpower all others.
