MBHM Monster Brain Shirt

My son just got back from a three week jaunt across the US. We spent the evening around the fire pit, and then he wanted to take a real shower. After weeks of camp site showers, I don’t blame him. When he came out, he was wearing his MONSTER BRAIN tee! It’s so nice to have him home. it’s been lonely around the house during the day. My dog doesn’t talk back (much.)

You can get your own MONSTER BRAIN tee here! 

Enjoy the day!

8 Ways to Live With a Chronic Illness | World of Psychology

“…I’m shifting my energy from finding a cure to learning how to “live around” the illness, turning to people with debilitating conditions like fibromyalgia, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome–as well as to scientists, meditation teachers, and great thinkers–for instructions on how to manage painful symptoms. Here are a few gems I have picked up, tips on how to dance in the rain … and where to find the courage to try again tomorrow.”

Special Offer for My Brain Hates Me Readers!

Reader Discount!

I designed the “Lights Out, MONSTER BRAIN” shirt for a few reasons. First, a friend of mine thought that the MONSTER BRAIN shirt in “sand” was a bit sadistic on my part. Second, black goes with everything. And lastly, I wanted a tribute to anyone who suffers from light sensitivity due to migraine or other neurological issues.

Also, I wouldn’t mind putting my MONSTER BRAIN to bed every once and a while and getting some rest.

Buying one of my shirts directly helps me pay medical debt, fill my next prescription, replace ice packs, and allows me to keep this blog going. While the blog is absolutely the least important thing on that list, it might be the most important to you… because here you are, sharing my journey.

If you’re like me, and you’re under the dictatorship of a chronic condition, maybe you can’t afford a shirt. That’s okay. I’d still appreciate it if you’d share my shirts with your friends. Heck, you can even pass along this discount!

Enjoy the shirt. Thank you for reading, commenting, supporting, and living.

Cefaly Unboxing by My Brain Hates Me [Video]

I recently received my Cefaly space princess tiara. The Cefaly is a medical device that is intended to act as prophylactic migraine treatment. I have an intractable migraine that never goes away. I’min pain 24/7, 365. My neurologist thought this might be a good treatment to try. It does require a prescription.

For more information, visit the Cefaly website: http://www.cefaly.us/
