Smelling Painfully

During a migraine, I smell everything, and even good smells are painful.  Somehow smells plunge into my brain like thousands of tiny daggers, piercing the most sensitive areas and overwhelming my already overstimulated neuronss.  Perfume, air fresheners, and cleaning products are some of the worst smells.  Please don’t be offended if I must leave the room.  You don’t smell bad; just painfully.

Abuse is an unfortunate reality in this world and is more than physical assault. The invisible trauma we suffer can result in chronic illness, which is a relentless beast gnawing away at the soundness of mind. Education and support from others are vital in the healing journey.
