Heads, you win

There was a news article a few days ago, saying that some researcher had discovered that migraine sufferers have thicker cortexes than the norm, and MS patients had thinner than the norm. It was conjectured that the thicker ones might have to do with an increased susceptibility to pain.

I don’t have MS, but one autoimmune neurological disease is as good as another; my ability to feel pain in some areas has become impaired. I said to my husband, who gets migraines, “So. That means you’re thick headed and I’m a numb skull?”

Haaaaaa Awesome! I read that too. I am thick headed then. I can say I knew that already because I am from Calabria, and that directly translates to “thick headed” in Italian 😉

I wonder if those of us with fibromyalgia are think headed too? Don’t run that by my husband.

Not only “thick headed” but poor spellers, too!

Where does that leave my mom? She suffered from migraines AND had MS. Most likely at the same time, since the doctors suspected she had MS for quite a while before it was diagnosed.

Oy. 😉 You would get along well with my family. We’re bad punners, too.
