photophobia

Eyes open too wide
Bright burning sun, eyes closed, seeing red
Colors bleached out, muted

Sandy eyes, dry, bloodshot
Pupils confused
Pain lurking behind eyelashes

Facial tension
Skin too tight, fragile skull
Crows clawing eyes

Migraine
Frying my brain

Hi. My name is Oona, I am a 16 year old with chronic migraines. I think us "migrainers" aught to stick together. I recently started a chronic migraine blog as well, and was glad to find yours. My migraine is constant, what about yours? Anyway, thank you for starting this blog, and I would love to talk to you, if you want.
