How might migraines affect my family relationships?

ANSWER

Not only does your headache affect you, it can also impact the people around you. You may cancel plans with family and friends because you don't feel well. You might put off outings or chores. Kids often worry about sick parents.

It's key to talk to those closest to you. Tell them how you feel, and be open about asking for help when you need it.
