Imagine your worst migraine day. Now imagine having to make a decision that may affect the lives of millions of people in America on that same day! It’s a serious concern if you are campaigning for President of the United States.
The extent to which migraines can be seriously debilitating looms as a health issue for Michele Bachmann’s campaign to be a presidential candidate.
Reporters have stated that Bachmann despite the fact that she takes prescription medications, to try to control her migraines, has been hospitalized more than once to get serious episodes under control.
There is no doubt that the migraines of certain sufferers can be extremely debilitating and require hospitalization, where powerful opiate drugs may be injected or administered IV. And as all migraine sufferers know, the side effects and lingering after effects of these medications can be just as debilitating.
Thomas Jefferson, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, all suffered from migraines and were in positions of power that required tremendous decision making under pressure all performed at notable levels.
One could suggest that a bad migraine that only happens occasionally it not as problematic as a really bad back that is always gnawing away at your thoughts.
On the other hand, to be considered a chronic migraineur, you have to have 15 or more headache days a month. One could argue, that if you are compromised with pain more than 1/2 of the time, that it could very well detract from you effectiveness as a decision maker.
The frequency and intensity of Ms. Bachmann’s migraines are legitimate concerns when it comes to someone being in the most powerful decision making position in the world.
Preventative measures, such as MigreLief, could be the perfect answer to Ms. Bachmann’s problem. Think of it. One day MigreLief could save the world, lower your taxes and feed the poor…if we believe what the politicians promise!
