Subject: Do migraines affect your music-making?
Do migraines affect YOUR music-making? I find it so difficult to make commitments to gigs these days...I had to stop teaching music, except for a couple of very understanding and flexible private students. I try to make it out to hear as much live music as possible (listening to music is so healing), but even driving to an evening song circle is tricky because I don't know if I'll be able to manage the drive home. According to the neurologist, I have a "severe disability" but in our culture I'm not sure they're always seen as such, or perhaps it is just me who is feeling guilty and tired of not getting as much accomplished as I used to, and as much as I'd like to be doing right now.

Thoughts? Similarities? Differences?
