Get some migraine support when you are not coping with your chronic migraines. You have access to certified and licensed professional counselors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the comfort and privacy of your own home with online counseling.
All of the counselors, psychologists, and I see psychiatrists often listed here too, are professionally certified and licensed. They all are listed under coping with crisis and physical conditions leading to pain and illness. They are specialists in their field.
Help is just a phone call away. Scroll down to see who is available now and see just how easy this can be.
Whether you are stressed out emotionally or just wanting some guidance, these professionals are available around the clock to provide support and assistance.
You can spend time reading a number of profiles before you decide who might be a good fit with you, or you may see someone right off the bat who you think you can connect with. I feel getting some migraine support emotionally, is essential.
I read some years ago that depression was just an expanded state of awareness.
Dr. Christiane Northrup says in her "The Power of Joy" CD that if you aren't depressed, then you just don't know what's really going on.
Depression rates are climbing these days just from trying to deal with the added stress and curve balls that life can throw at us.
Never mind adding a debilitating neurological medical condition on top of managing it all with some dignity and compassionate understanding.
Coping with a chronic medical condition like this can become increasingly difficult and unbearable.
If you feel you need some extra support to deal with this debilitating disease, then don't wait.
Finding a psychologist and counselor that I could work with was one of the best steps I ever took on this pain journey. I truly believe that we are just not meant to do it all by ourselves.
The impact goes far beyond the pain with this brutal and disabling condition. Getting some help now might just make your life much much easier to cope with now and in the future.
Like I said, learning new coping skills was one of the best things I ever did. I highly recommend it.
Please don't let your pride get in the way like I did for too many years. I studied holistic counseling for four years and worked in the field long before I saw a counselor myself.
I felt like I had my tail between my legs as I walked up to the lifeline office. Looking back it was the smartest thing I have done on this journey.
The first thing she said to me was "do you have a pain management strategy?" I freaked out and said "what do you know about pain?"
She said calmly, "while actually I got my psychology degree from my hospital bed. I broke every bone in my body, and I thought I'd better do something during my long recovery."
I was shocked. Here was someone who could help me.
I tell you this so you don't give up. Don't loose hope. Ok. Persevere. If I can make it through this, to the other side, so can you.
I have complete faith in your abilities. After all, you have already read to the end of this page. And that takes commitment to learning and change already.
Until next time, be well and be pain free.
