Lists and Parenthesis: Like PB&J

My top five reasons why having a chronic migraine sucks, and the qualifiers that keep me from getting too bummed about it:

1. It hurts to laugh. (It doesn't hurt to smile.)

2. I can't control my anger. (I no longer let myself remain in unpleasant situations for the sake of others.)

3. I get lonely. (I have been reminded of the value of true relationships.)

4. I have less than 100% faith in my mind. (A little kick to the ego to remind me I am not invincible and all powerful was probably warranted.)

5. My quantity of fun has been hugely reduced. (My quality of fun is higher than ever.)
